Though nothing can bring them back, the millions of victims of abortion in America may soon be honored in the state of Arkansas thanks to a piece of legislation commemorating the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision as “The Day of Tears.”
According to Life News, the Arkansas Senate passed H.C.R. 1007 on Wednesday, acknowledging the 61 million unborn babies victimized by abortion since 1973 and encouraging Arkansans to lower their flags to half-staff on January 22 in mourning. The resolution had previously passed the Arkansas House of Representatives.
Alabama passed a similar resolution back in March.
“HJR 24 is an important step in the mission to change our culture to one that embraces Life. Thank you to the Alabama Legislature for designating a day to remember and mourn those whom we have lost under the guise of ‘choice,” said Anne Fitzgerald, executive director of Day of Tears, a nonprofit dedicated to proclaiming January 22nd as a national day of mourning.
“It was on January 22, 1973 that seven Justices of the Supreme Court said that they had discovered a right to abortion in the Constitution. That assertion, in the case of Roe v. Wade, is a legal fiction, as the Constitution does not secure such a right,” Day of Tears declares on its website. “Some days have names, such as Memorial Day and Labor Day. We seek to name a new day. It will be called the Day of Tears, and it will be a day of national mourning.”
“Ordinary Americans, such as you, cannot change the Supreme Court. You cannot pass a Constitutional Amendment. And, you cannot force Congress to act. But you can lower your flag,” the organization continues. “You are one solitary American. However, you will be joined by millions of other solitary Americans. When the nation sees the flags lowered in mourning, it will pause and remember the precious innocents who have perished, and there is nothing the Supreme Court or Congress can do to stop it.”
