On his Apostolic Trip to South Korea, The Holy Father Pope Francis made one of his most poignant and direct pro-life gestures by making a solemn visit to a memorial cemetery for aborted children.
The abortion memorial, located at the Kkottongnae home for the sick about 120 miles from Seoul, is a field dotted with white crosses surrounding a large statue of the Holy Family.
Accompanying the Pope was Father Lee Gu-won, a representative of pro-life groups in Korea and missionary to people without limbs.
The cemetery is located behind the ”House of Hope” Rehabilitation Center which provides care and rehabilitation to the severely disabled, homeless and those afflicted by addictions. Francis spent almost an hour in the “House of Hope,” where he embraced the disabled patients young and old.
