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).

In January 2021, Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana introduced the Day of Tears resolution in the U.S. Senate, with Rep. Jody Hice of Georgia doing the same in the U.S. House of Representatives.

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.

“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
~Matthew 19:14
“If anyone causes one of these little ones~ those who believe in me~ to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!” ~Matthew 18:6–7
