Dear Pro-life Friends,
On January 22, 1973, the two most destructive
and disastrous decisions of the United States
Supreme Court were imposed on our nation: Roe
vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton. These decisions
legalized abortion throughout pregnancy.
God bless you!
We are now approaching the 40th anniversary of
these decisions, and the pro-life movement is
preparing to observe this occasion with
appropriate events of prayer and action.
On this website we will post pertinent events,
activities, articles, and other items related to
the observance of the 40th anniversary in
January, and throughout the year 2013.
On this page, you will see links to various
activities that pro-life organizations can take
part in to mark this important year.
If you would like to share what you or your
group are doing in observance of this
anniversary, or have ideas about what the
pro-life movement should do, or want to be kept
informed of special initiatives, please fill out
the form below.

upcoming issues reflecting on the
significance of the 40th
Commemoration of Roe vs. Wade.
Heartbeat International, with the
assistance of the National Pro-life
Religious Council, is organizing a
special virtual prayer event for January
22, 2013, as well as an opportunity to
share experiences and memories regarding
Roe vs. Wade, and to communicate with
public officials about it.
Pastors, elders, and Christian leaders,
signed a historical document called the
Emancipation Proclamation for the
Pre-born Child. They now call upon
concerned citizensto stand with them and
"proclaim liberty throughout the land". (Leviticus 25:10)
This powerful educational and
inspirational film will mark the 40th year since
Roe vs. Wade. Leaders and activists are asked to
help promote it so that people can understand
the impact Roe has had and the movement that has
arisen to reverse it.
