How You Can Help Raise Abortion Awareness: The oPIN Your Eyes Project

By Alyson D

“60,000,000 babies….legally killed within 45 years.”

Why isn’t this scrolling across our news feed?  Why do we not hear the silent screams of these babies being killed daily?  Who will speak out for them?

I just learned this year how many babies have been legally killed since Roe v. Wade.  I had no idea that 60 million babies have died. That is nearly ten times the amount of people Hitler killed in the Holocaust. I had to do something with this information. I had to understand what 60 million looked like.  And voila! The oPIN your eyes project was born!

We’ve lost ten times the amount of people Hitler killed in the Holocaust. I had to do something with this information.

What is oPIN your eyes?
Well, thanks for asking.  It’s a 9-month project to raise national awareness of what our country has lost through legalized abortion. It started on March 9th and will end on December 9th (that’s soon!).  I am collecting diaper and safety pins to represent the lives lost. 1 pin equals 200 lives; therefore, I need 300,000 pins. So far, I have received over 280,000 pins. After the collection is over on December 9th, I hope to create a public display (such as a GIANT baby bottle filled with these pins) where people can come and see the collection. I pray that God will use this to open our eyes to the grave reality of what our country has lost through legalized abortion.

How can I help?
You can send in pins! I still need 20,000. Since this project is ending in less than 1 month, go ahead and send in your pins today!  Remember, they can be any size, any color diaper/safety pins!  Follow these steps to  contribute your pins:
1) Please be sure you close the pins.
2) Write the pin count on the bag.
3) Include your name so you can be listed as a donor!
4) Then send them to:

You can email me at opinyoureyes@gmail.com. I will do my best to answer all your questions.

Where can I learn more about your project?
I have Facebook and Instagram accounts where you can follow this project, but all of the info about the project is on the oPIN your eyes website: www.opinyoureyes.com.
