  • What's the goal?
    Our goal is to end the silent extermination of our children in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Our hope is that in gathering together we can effectively draw attention to the great tragedy that is the one million lives lost to abortion in the Greater Philadelphia Area since Roe v. Wade in 1973. We envision a Greater Philadelphia with no abortion and we aim to inspire and encourage action, change, and a culture where abortion is unthinkable.
