FEB 5 BULLETIN
ABOLITION DAY 2023

Tuesday, Feb 7 | 10 AM & 2 PM
On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at 10:00 AM, we will gather on the South Plaza of the Oklahoma State Capitol for a short rally, go inside for organized lobbying, and then move to Edmond's First Baptist Church for the afternoon conference from 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM.

After Roe's Overturning, the danger of our legislators is that they would become lax in their duty to criminalize abortion as murder. While Oklahoma murder mills are closed, the practice of at-home abortion via murderous pills has only increased. Join us as we demand that our State government provide the equal protection of the law for our pre-born neighbors.

There is no cost, but please register for Abolition Day to help us better prepare for lobbying. Visit:
