Chicago, December 12, 2022 — In the aftermath of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, pro-life Americans are declaring, “All I want for Christmas is peace in the womb.” In the coming weeks, they will gather under banners expressing those words as they sing Christmas carols outside abortion facilities throughout the country, as part of the Pro-Life Action League’s annual “Peace in the Womb” Christmas Caroling campaign.
“Ever since Roe v. Wade was overturned, the American people have been overwhelmed with propaganda from abortion advocates,” said Eric Scheidler, the League’s executive director. “But behind euphemisms like ‘choice’ and ‘reproductive rights’ is the reality that every abortion is an act of violence perpetrated on an innocent human being. That’s why we’re calling for peace in the womb.”
Pro-life Christmas caroling is planned at over 80 abortion facilities coast-to-coast. In the 20 years that the League has conducted these caroling events, dozens of unborn babies have been saved from abortion. “In our first year singing carols, a woman walked out of American Women’s Medical Center in Chicago to tell us that hearing ‘Silent Night’ prompted her to cancel her abortion,” Scheidler reported. “In the years since, we’ve seen that story play out at abortion facilities all over the country.”
“It’s particularly sad to think of someone getting an abortion during the Christmas season,” Scheidler remarked. “After all, Christmas is the story of how the all sorrows of the world are conquered by the birth of a child — a child conceived in difficult circumstances. We bring this story of hope and joy to America’s abortion facilities, while offering to help in any way that we can.”
