Wonderful things happened this past Christmas when pro-lifers gathered to sing Christmas carols outside of abortion clinics across the country.
Their songs celebrating the birth of the Christ child inspired several women to choose life for their unborn babies. In an interview with the National Catholic Register this week, Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler said he recently learned about babies in Florida and California who Christmas carolers helped to save from abortion.
Scheidler said three different California couples changed their minds after listening to pro-lifers sing outside an abortion facility on Dec. 17 in San Bernadino. He said one couple walked out of the abortion facility crying and holding hands.
“What impressed me about this report is they actually stopped to tell the caroler group that they changed their mind,” Scheidler told the Register. “The couple told them, ‘It was because of your caroling that we decided to keep our baby.’ The singing was the only thing that happened to change their mind.”
Six others reportedly chose life for their unborn babies after carolers outside of three Florida abortion facilities gave them hope, he said.

“We just love doing it,” said Michele Herzog, director for the Orlando Pro-Life Action Ministries office. The group sang carols at the All Women’s Health abortion center in Altamonte Springs and two Orlando abortion centers.
Between the two locations, the carolers saw two sets of twins and two other individual babies saved. Herzog said the facilities are set up so that the pro-lifers are able to sing and be seen from the waiting room window or the entrance, making contact much more possible than many other facilities.
“We sang, prayed and called out to the women,” Herzog recalled.
In one case she witnessed, two teenage girls with the pro-life group were singing a song they wrote themselves titled “Let me live.”
Herzog said a couple came out and told them, “We’re not doing it.” “It was just really an amazing day,” she said. “It really was something else.”
Scheidler said he was singing outside a Chicago abortion clinic several years ago when another baby and mom were saved from abortion.
“We were singing ‘Silent Night’ outside of an abortion clinic when a young woman came out, approached one of our carolers, and said that our singing made her think about Mary and Baby Jesus and she just couldn’t go through with her abortion,” he said.
The Pro-Life Action League has been organizing the Christmas caroling outreach for the past 13 years. The theme this year was Peace in the Womb. More than 60 cities in 28 states participated, according to the group. Through the songs, the pro-life group said it hopes to bring peace and joy to the darkness of abortion clinics.
“We want to offer hope, help and alternatives to assist women in choosing life for their children,” Scheidler said. “Christmas is a time of reconciliation. Jesus was born to reconcile the world to Himself, and it is our hope that every mother will be reconciled to her unborn child, no matter how difficult the circumstances. And we’ll be there to offer whatever help we can.”
