I was recently approached by a sister in the faith who wanted to make an additional contribution to Missouri’s Abortion Memorial. As she handed me diaper pins and safety pins (with color!), she stopped to point out something she and her husband had made. I thought I understood the symbolism, but as I read the descriptive note, it became apparent that these pins and ribbons represent something far more beautiful than I had previously assumed.
“Pink and blue ribbons represent unborn baby girls and boys. Black safety pin resents that we grieve their death in abortion. White safety pin represents that the babies are in Jesus’ arms.”
