Jackson, Mississippi -- Pro-life leaders from across the nation will come together this evening, Sunday, November 28, for Pray Together for Life, a nationwide prayer gathering--coast to coast and border to border. The event, hosted by Family Research Council, will take place at New Horizon Church in Jackson, Mississippi, home of the pro-life law at issue in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, three days before the U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the case. For decades, pro-life Americans have prayed and worked to see Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy, overturned. This decision could be the case that sends Roe to the dustbin of history.
Spanning across political, denominational, and ethnic lines, other speakers include:
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves
Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List
Mike Farris, President & CEO, Alliance Defending Freedom
