This Christmas miracle took place on a Saturday morning in December 2003, the year the Pro-Life Action League organized our first Christmas caroling tour at abortion facilities throughout Chicago. We soon began training other pro-life groups to hold “Peace in the Womb” Christmas caroling tours in their own communities, and they were soon reporting back to us with their own stories of mothers being moved to cancel their abortions. This year, Christmas carols will be sung at close to 100 abortion facilities throughout the country.

It is especially sorrowful that a child would be aborted at this time of year—a horrible contradiction of the Christmas story of hope and joy dawning upon the earth with the birth of a baby. Those of us who go out every year to sing Christmas carols outside abortion centers draw parallels between the story of Bethlehem and so many of those sitting in abortion waiting rooms right now—the poor and displaced who have found “no room at the inn,” and in desperation are turning to abortion.
