What is Tiny Feet Memorial?
Tiny Feet Memorial is a way to remember the millions of babies lost through pregnancy terminations, also known as abortions, while also providing an avenue for the living to grieve and heal.
Why 60 million pairs of baby shoes?
60 million is a lot. My hope is to show how many lives have been lost through abortion in a tangible way. What better way than with baby shoes?
What are you going to do with all those shoes?
The goal is to create a traveling exhibit, starting in the west and moving east towards Washington D.C. where there will be a permanent memorial open to the public.
Where do your stats come from?
U.S. abortion statistics are available on many websites. The ones I use can be found at http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/policy/abortion/
Why start the count of abortions in 1973?
1973 was the year pregnancy terminations became legal in the United States; the year we as a nation proclaimed this practice as acceptable.
What do you hope to accomplish?
So many things. First, my greatest desire is that human life, including life before birth, is revered as something precious and worth protecting. Second, I hope this nation can heal from the external and internal wounds caused by abortion. I also believe that there are many wonderful repercussions to a life-focused nation including advancements in the medical field, in elderly care, child care, parenting, judicial integrity, and the general increase in the quality of life.
Why store all those shoes when someone could use them?
That is the entire point of Tiny Feet Memorial. The child who should have been able to wear those shoes is no longer with us. Their shoes are here in their memory.
