The Spanish Association United for Life has begun a campaign calling for the creation of a Memorial Park in Madrid and in other Spanish cities in order to honor the children who have died as victims of abortion in the country since its legalization in 1985.
According to promoters of the campaign, in “The Garden of the Absent” a flower will be planted for each victim of abortion.
Membership in the park will be subscription based and will be open for applications through November 20, 2005.
Organizers said appeals for membership will be “directed towards the 52% of the population that, according to a 2001 poll, expressed ‘little or no tolerance for abortion’ and called for prevention campaigns.”
“Likewise the Park will be open to those individuals who have taken part in an abortion, as a act of reparation and a first step towards interior healing of Post-abortion Syndrome, which can affect up to 91% of women who have had abortions,” the Association said.
The inauguration will take place November 20 in Madrid.
