League To Bring Christmas Hope to Abortuaries

Christmas carolers

On Saturday, Dec. 23, the Pro-Life Action League will visit four abortion facilities in Chicago for our fourth annual “Empty Manger” Christmas Caroling Day. “The Christmas story is a story of hope and joy brought into the world by a newborn baby,” commented League Communications Director Eric Scheidler. “We want abortion-bound mothers to know that their unborn babies are a gift, too.”

The League has saved babies from abortion in past years when their mothers heard the caroling. “One mother told our counselor that hearing ‘Silent Night’ made her think about how Mary said yes to God—and then she couldn’t go through with the abortion.”

“Empty Manger” Speaks of the Unborn Baby


At each of four Chicago abortion facilities, League carolers will gather around an empty manger, which symbolizes both the hope that new life can bring as well as the emptiness left behind when an unborn child is killed by abortion. The schedule for the Dec. 23 caroling day will be:

  • 9:00 Planned Parenthood, 1200 N. La Salle Dr., Chicago (map)
  • 10:00 Family Planning Associates, 659 W. Washington St., Chicago (map)
  • 11:00 American Women Medical Ctr., 2744 N. Western Ave., Chicago (map)
  • 12:00 Albany Medical Surgical Ctr., 5086 N. Elston Ave., Chicago (map)

Pro-Lifers Across the Country Join in Caroling Day

Since the League first began Christmas caroling at abortion facilities in 2003, groups across the country have picked up on the idea, some of them using the League’s Carol Booklet[PDF]].

“We encourage more pro-lifers to join this national event,” said Scheidler. “Simply print out our booklet and gather a few friends for carols at the abortion facilities in your area.”
