Shrine for victims of abortion created in Mexico City

.- Some fifty organizations came together Monday in Mexico City for the inauguration of a shrine for the victims of the abortion, which is intended to also be “a place of prayer” for women who suffer regret over having undergone an abortion and losing an “unborn child.”

The Archdiocese of Mexico City is supporting the initiative.

The rector of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Msgr. Pedro Agustin Rivera Diaz, told reporters no new building is being constructed but rather a special “place of prayer” is being created which will have a crucifix and two statues of the Virgin Mary.

He said future plans include the building of a special crypt where the remains of “unborn babies” can be interred.  Mothers will be able to have their aborted children buried there.

Msgr. Rivera Diaz said mothers will find there “a place of consolation” where their children can receive a Christian burial.

The initiative comes on the heels of the Mexico’s Supreme Court ruling that the Mexico City law allowing abortion in the nation’s capital does not violate the country's constitution.
