‘Epicenter of Infanticide’ Targeted as 2 Dozen Pro-Life Rallies Planned for ‘Day of Mourning’ by Benjamin Gill for CBN News
GNN Note – This Saturday so please check for activities in your city. It appears there are a great many cities around the U.S. that are participating. If you are outside the U.S. please pray for our children.
A grassroots movement of Americans outraged by New York’s recent abortion law is turning their disgust into action. A nationwide event called “Day of Mourning” is planned for Saturday, February 23rd.
Organizers say it will be a solemn time of prayer and repentance for the millions of babies aborted in America.
The primary event will be a rally in Albany, New York where an extreme pro-abortion law was signed last month. Liberal New York lawmakers shocked the nation when they celebrated with cheers after passing a law that allows late-term abortions, even up till the moment of birth.
“We’re holding a huge flagship rally that’s already sold out, in Albany, New York, right in the epicenter of where Governor Cuomo signed and celebrated that outrageous, infanticide law,” Elizabeth Johnston, also known as “the Activist Mommy,” told CBN.
The event will include speakers like real estate entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham who were blacklisted over public statements about same-sex marriage and abortion, and author David J. Harris, a leader in the black conservative movement.
“We’re gonna be right there, in the convention center underneath the state house where they signed that law,” Johnston said. “And we are owning this sin. Even as God’s people, if you’ve never committed an abortion, there’s a sense in which we have been completely complicit, completely silent, we have not been the Good Samaritan that we must be, and so we have to own this as God’s people for allowing this bloodshed for 46 years. And we’re gonna get on our faces before God, thousands of people, and repent for the sin of abortion.”
