Newaygo, Michigan: Abortion Memorial

On the front property of a private home, a sculpted pink hand holds an unborn infant above the words "Suffer the Little Children." The word "ABORTION" is spelled out in tiny crosses on the lawn for the benefit of low flying air traffic.

1076 W. 48th Street, Newaygo, MI
About 1000 feet west of the curve from S Gordon Ave., south side of W 48th St. Private property - visible from road.

Super weird. If you are in Fremont/Newaygo already then go for it. I wouldn't get off 131 for all this weird.

There is a very nice roadside abortion memorial near Freemont. I don't remember what road it's on though, but I believe it's just east of town. This is a wonderfully done memorial and I was glad I stumbled upon it on the way to a family reunion

One sign notes: "These crosses represent the 665 babies aborted each hour of every working day...."
