The Knights have placed 137 such monuments in Catholic cemeteries across North America.
The Knights of Columbus, from Bellville, Ontario, have erected a gravestone as a monument to remember those who were not afforded a chance at life. Engraved on the tombstone, just under a carving of a baby — surrounded by the slogan, “unborn lives matter,”– is written, “In memory of all victims of abortion.”
The National Post reports that 18 members of the Knights and their families were present for the placement of the monument, at the St. James Roman Catholic Cemetery in southwest Belleville. The photographs taken from the event were put on Facebook, where they drew thousands of comments and reactions, the majority of which were positive.
