The National Memorial for the Unborn is located at 6230 Vance Road, Chattanooga, Tennessee, near the airport. The memorial was built in 1993 after a Pro-Life Coalition bought the Chattanooga Abortion Clinic in bankruptcy court. This was an amazing answer to many years of prayers and protests by the group. The clinic was closed, and we opened a crisis pregnancy center in one half of the building. In the other half, where the actual abortions were performed, we bulldozed all but one wall and put up the memorial, which is similar to the Vietnam wall.

The memorial wall is 50 feet long, made of black marble, and covered with small, brass plates. The plates bear names of aborted babies, dates, Scripture verses, and personal messages placed there in memory of those who died. At one end of the wall is a large painting entitled “I’ll Hold You in Heaven.” Every week, many people visit from as far as Alaska and Canada. They leave toys, notes, flowers, and letters to remember their babies. Our staff holds memorial services with parents who come to place their plaques. Often they include a letter telling us the story of their abortion.
The National Memorial for the Unborn is dedicated to healing generations of pain associated with the loss of aborted and miscarried children. No longer must these children remain nameless and forgotten, but are honoured through the Memorial’s “Wall of Names” and “Remembrance Garden” allowing mothers, fathers and other family members to begin the healing process.
The 50-foot granite “Wall of Names” holds small brass plates with words of remembrance from individuals and families all over the country seeking post-abortion healing. By honouring their child, countless individuals and families have found freedom from guilt and shame and moved toward forgiveness and restoration.
Our Remembrance Garden is a peaceful sanctuary for mothers, fathers, and other family members to honor their miscarried child. Engraved, brick pavers placed along the garden paths share their personal stories and provide encouragement to others seeking peace and solace there.
The Memorial also includes the original painting “I Will Hold You In Heaven,” historical markers, and the Pool of Tears, which is dedicated to the memory of children lost to miscarriage.
