The Anti-Defamation League described a plan by evangelical pastors in Kansas to build a replica of the Western Wall as part of an anti-abortion shrine as “an outrageous affront to the Jewish people.”

The International Pro-Life Memorial and National Life Center is being planned by anti-abortion activists in Wichita, which is known for its anti-abortion activism, the Forward reported.The model of the Western Wall will be a full-size, exact replica. The activists view the Western Wall as the embodiment of remembering Jewish suffering during the Holocaust and now want the wall to memorialize some 60 million aborted fetuses.

The wall replica will be fronted by 60 simple white crosses, each representing 1 million aborted fetuses, according to the center's website.

A website for the center says the wall, which is referred to by another of its names, the Wailing Wall, will be "a place of repentance, mediation, and healing."
