Banners, prayer, marches, bikers and strikes draw attention to millions aborted from Roe v Wade
This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision which legalized abortion o demand in America.
Pro-lifers are gearing up to bring attention to the plight of millions of unborn children executed by abortion.
In Texas, John Piscotta of Pro-life Waco is planning to unveil a HUGE banner across I35, which reads, “Abortion is never OK. No Roe”
Piscotta wrote this on his Hometown Pro-life Action Facebook page,”Interstate 35 pedestrian overpass demonstration on Roe day. I just received the main sign we will be using. It was the widest sign the company has ever made. This Pro-Life Waco demonstration happens on Thursday, January 24 from 11 to 1 p.m. We would love to have YOUR participation in this first (but not last) overpass demonstration in Waco. We need pro-lifers to hold signs and draw attention to our signs. The I-35 location is adjacent to Baylor University. Park your car in the lot of the new Chick Fill-A off 6th Street. Then walk less than a block to the entrance to the pedestrian overpass. Write or call me at 254-644-0407 is you have questions.”
In Dallas Texas, Life Dynamics reports that Bikers for Life will be leading a march to the Earle Cabell Federal Courthouse housing the district court where Roe was first filed in 1970.
In addition to the Bikers, Dallas Bishop Kevin Farrell plans to lead the march on the back of a motorcycle for two blocks and then walk the last two blocks to rally outside the Courthouse.
The ride will take place Saturday, January 17th at 3:00 PM.
Bikers will assemble by 2:00 PM at 500 Memorial Drive, (near the Dallas Convention Center).
Bikers who plan to ride for life can register here.
In March 1970, a suit was filed in Dallas on behalf of plaintiff Jane Roe and all other women “who were or might become pregnant and want to consider all options.”
At the time, in Texas, abortions were prohibited except to save the pregnant woman’s life. But, on June 17, 1970 the three-judge federal panel struck down the Texas abortion statute.
Henry Wade, a Dallas district attorney who defended the Texas law and the state attorney general appealed, leading, eventually, to the Supreme Court ruling: Roe v. Wade.
Pro-life Rallies are also planned in Austin:
In California- Black pro-lifers are planning a rally in Oakland.
The Oakland pro-life event is being organized by Rev. Walter Hoye.
An page on Hoye’s website about the rally reads, “We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.”
Rev. Hoye said that they have invited half a dozen speakers for their without life nothing matters rally to be held on Friday, January 23rd, at noon at the Oakland City Hall at One Frank H. Ogawa Plaza.
Hoye has invited several Black pro-life leaders to speak at the Oakland rally including Rev. Clenard Childress and Connie Eller who were interviewed in Life Dynamics’ powerful documentary on abortion and Black genocide, Maafa21.
In addition, Hoye said that Pastor Bruce Rivers who leads Mount Moriah Baptist Church, Pastor Walter Moss who is the pastor of the Foursquare Church in Canton, Ohio, Evangelist Richard Lane who is the only full time Black American Lay Catholic Ministries in the United States of America, and Rev. Hoye will also speak.
Hoye said his message to the crowd is, “If Black lives are going to matter, they have to matter in the womb first. Because if they don’t matter in the womb, they don’t matter anywhere.”

Choices for Life will be drawing attention to the child conceived in rape.
Their event will take place January 20th in Washington DC and with a panel of speakers which include founder Juda Myers and Elaine Riddick.
The group writes on their website for the event, “If you are a mother or child of rape conception please join us at the March for Life 2015 in DC to voice the truth about life. Too often the prejudice goes unchallenged and victims suffer in silence. But united we can make a difference. Our time has come and already we are making a difference. Those of us who can speak out must speak for those who can’t. If you are a mother who has known the insults and abuse from loving your rape conceived child then I know you want this to stop for every mother who chooses life for her rape conceived child.”

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, pro-lifers plan MLK-style protests to fight for unborn.
Protest ABQ has planned a national strike for January 22 and 23 which they say is similar to tactics employed by the late Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Not go to work, not go to school, and that brings in the strike aspect of the event,” says organizer Tara Shaver. “But instead we want people to be prayerful, to fast and to protest, whether that be at a local abortion mill, on the state capitol building.”
No place is off limits, and people are being asked to not spend money during those two days.
The hope of the strike and protest is to use peaceful means to send a resounding message to lawmakers and the courts that American people want to see an end to abortion.
