Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- When hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates gather for the March for Life in Washington and the Walk for Life in San Francisco, they will encounter scores of new signs sponsored by Priests for Life. The pro-life Catholic group wants to get the message across that women regret their abortion decision.
Father Frank Pavone says his group is "getting tens of thousands of powerful, life-saving signs into the hands of men and women who will be marching against abortion" on the pro-life weekend.
The signs will say, "Women Do Regret Abortion!"
"We've already shipped out over 30,000 of these signs [to pro-life people for the two events], with more requests coming in every day," Pavone told LifeNews.com today.
Those are in addition to the 10,000 "Women Do Regret Abortion!" signs Priests for Life and its Silent No More Awareness Campaign companion group are taking to the March for Life and Walk for Life to hand out in person.
"That's over 40,000 signs that have a proven track record of saving lives," Pavone says.
He points to a story of two women holding up signs in California at an abortion center saying, "I Regret My Abortion" and a woman slated to have abortion turning around and deciding against an abortion after seeing the signs.
"Those words were so powerful that the woman paused before entering the clinic, walked around the building, crossed the street, and came up to the two women to talk with them," Pavone said. "And because she did, her baby is alive today!"
The new signs are a variation of the personal abortion regret sign that Silent No More has sponsored and have been seen throughout the country.
"Not only will these signs help expose the dirty secret about the horror of abortion that the mainstream news media and so-called 'women's groups' don't want anyone to know," Pavone explained.
"They will act as a sort of 'pointer' to the 'I Regret my Abortion' signs many of the courageous women who are part of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be carrying during pro-life rallies that will be taking place all across the country in the coming days and weeks," he added. "People will see the 'Women Do Regret Abortion!' signs, think about its message, then see an 'I Regret My Abortion' sign and go up and talk with the woman carrying it."
"America has reached a crossroads. Two clear paths lie before us: One leading to death for tens of millions of innocent babies, their mothers and fathers, their families ... and even our nation," Pavone concludes. "The other leads to life."
