Ceremony honors babies lost to abortion

(Continued)

Harpring also spoke about doing more than enabling struggling mothers for the short term. She emphasized the need to empower them to make good decisions in order to care for their children for the long term. There are many ways to help and Harpring said every effort makes a difference. She spoke about several ways pro-lifers could help, calling each method an individual’s “little candle.”

“Everyone has their candles; keep yours burning, regardless of the many shapes, sizes and forms those candles may come in. Together, many little candles do make a great light, and you do make a difference,” Harpring said. “Because of what you do, there are children alive in this world who almost didn’t get a chance to be born.”

Harpring listed several statistics that showed the reduction in abortions in Indiana and across the country, concluding her speech by illustrating the difference pro-lifers are making in the lives of struggling parents and unborn children.

Tressler thanked Harpring for her message and implored the gathered crowd to “Please find your candle and let it light our world.”

The ceremony concluded with those gathered placing roses in an infant casket while a local musician played Taps to honor the unborn that were never given a chance at life.

“The ceremony was to honor the little babies who were killed. However, we are very aware that we need to support the mothers as well,” Rust told the Daily News. “On behalf of the babies who have died, we want to thank the people that came to honor them.”
