3,500 Hearts Presented By Senior Capstone Group: Keiley Ayers, Kaitlin Blanchard, Kelsey Dufresne and Kate Schultz
You’ve seen the paint on the front doors of CJ, but why is it there, and what is “Pro-Life Paint Day”?
On Feburary 6, people across the nation chalked & painted 3,500 feet and hearts in their communities. CJ’s front doors are our part in this effort to raise awareness about abortion.
Why 3,500? 1 heart or foot represents 1 child aborted in America every day... 3,500aborted in one 24-hour period. 24,500 aborted every seven days. 98,000 aborted per month. 1,176,000lives lost in a single year.
3,500 Hearts... “I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” ― Mother Teresa
3,500 Hearts... 1 heart also represents 16,000 lives that have been aborted since Roe V. Wade was passed in 1973. 16,000 x 3,500 = 56,000,000 lives lost This is one-third of our generation. Gone.
3,500 Hearts... “Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it . . . life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Ronald Reagan, 1982
3,500 Hearts... “The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.” Pope John Paul II
3,500 Hearts... • “Every child that isn’t born, but is unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of Jesus Christ, has the face of the Lord.” • Pope Francis
