Despite the coronavirus pandemic, abortion clinics across the United States have remained open, and one pro-life group is continuing its annual Christmas caroling events in an effort to bring women hope in a difficult time.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to engulf the United States, a pro-life group is continuing its annual Christmas caroling events in an effort to bring women hope in a difficult time.
2020 marks the seventh year that the Pro-Life Action League has conducted a project called “Peace in the Womb” Christmas caroling. As part of the project, pro-lifers in dozens of cities across the U.S. will gather in front of abortion clinics on various days in December to offer women seeking abortions a message of hope. Most of the Christmas caroling will take place on Dec. 19.
“More than any other factor, it’s fear that drives a woman to seek abortion. Fear for her future, fear of giving birth, even fear over her partners’ reaction to her pregnancy,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, in a statement about the caroling. “These fears have been compounded by the COVID pandemic and resulting economic downturn.”
In an interview with The Christian Post, Scheidler said his group would not let the coronavirus impede their efforts to spread the pro-life message.
