Pro-lifers prepare for 40th anniversary of 'Roe v. Wade'

National pro-life leaders are calling on fellow pro-life believers to join them in Washington, DC, next year for the National Memorial for the Pre-Born. It will be the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. 

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life explains that the 2013 event in January will focus on prayer and repentance.

"Repentance has to come to us as a nation for all that we have failed to do to protect our unborn brothers and sisters in these 40 years of legalized killing," he says. "Prayer, of course, that we not go too much longer in this state and that the healing begin. So much healing has to take place and in so many ways."

Pavone tells OneNewsNow there is nothing that takes more life than abortion.

"No crime or disease, no national disaster or war, not terrorism, not AIDS, not poverty, not drug abuse -- it [abortion] has taken and continues to take more life than anything else precisely because Roe v. Wade allowed it throughout all nine months of pregnancy," he declares. "It's an incredible thing."

Pavone points out the January observance of the 40th anniversary will launch a full year of activities related to ending abortion and a special website has been set up to draw attention to it.
