On Wednesday, it was reported that the Louisiana Legislature had passed a resolution commemorating the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion-on-demand in the United States, as the “Day of Tears.”
According to Life Site News:
The resolution to make January 22, 2022, a Day of Tears was passed on May 4, through the efforts of State Sen. Beth Mizell (R).
Day of Tears is a national pro-life organization which aims to commemorate January 22 as a Day of Tears and to encourage Americans to lower their flags to half-staff in mourning.
Traditionally, flying the American flag at half-staff is a symbol of honor, mourning, or remembrance. By flying the flag at half-staff on January 22, Americans would publicly mourn the loss of the children of this country murdered by abortion.
“When the nation sees the flags lowered in mourning,” the website says, “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.”
The move by the state to honor the lives lost from abortion shows a move in the direction of life-affirming policy in the state. According to Americans United for Life, Louisiana is the second most pro-life state in the nation.
