Background: Knights of Columbus councils throughout the Order pay tribute to the millions of children killed by abortion by erecting memorials in Catholic cemeteries, council hall grounds, and on parish grounds. The idea for these memorials grew from a challenge made by the late Cardinal John O’Connor of New York, who created the Sisters of Life. In his homily at the opening of the 110th annual Supreme Council Meeting in 1992, he asked his brother Knights “to continue the Order’s aggressive fight against abortion” by erecting memorials dedicated to the unborn victims of abortion. Now there are more than 2,000 across America.
