Are you a spectator or are you a doer?

Does your heart ache for the innocents who have perished from abortion? Do you long for an end to the suffering that abortion brings to mothers and their babies? Do you yearn for something you can do to end the scourge of the unborn?

If you answered yes to these questions, here is a recommendation for you to consider.

The Day of Tears team is looking for people to join in our effort to end abortion. We plan to do that by changing the present culture which sustains the practice of killing unborn children.

We have two specific goals. The first one is to name January 22nd the Day of Tears. That was the day in 1973 when the Supreme Court legalized abortion.

The naming of January 22nd as the Day of Tears will cause people to associate abortion with the incalculable suffering it brings to its victims. It will also cause people to mourn the millions who have perished and remember the mothers who forever regret their fateful decision.

The second goal is to encourage people to lower their flags on January 22nd. When Americans awaken on that day and go about their daily travels, they will see flags lowered in mourning and ask, Who died?

The answer to that question may cause some to reflect on the millions of children who never had a chance of life.

By joining the Day of Tears team, you can be part of the noble effort to change the culture to welcome life, and not destroy it. For more information on what you can do, send an email to us using the contact page on this website.

In the great struggles that have shaped the course of history, spectators have never influenced the outcome. It is only the doers who set the direction of nations.

Will you be a doer with us?

A letter from my heart

A letter from my Heart

From Diana Shores, Director of Social Media for the Day of Tears

I have always been pro-life. I was raised in a pro-life family. I grew up knowing that all life has value and that God’s creation should be preserved and not destroyed. As I’ve gotten older, the life message has become personal and precious to me.

As a mother, I’ve felt life beginning within. I’ve seen the tiny heartbeat on the monitor and listened to the gentle galloping sound on the Doppler. I’ve been scared a few times that my little one was less than perfect, but heard God’s gentle whisper that He makes all things glorious.

I’ve worked with those with severe physical impairments and disabilities. When I looked into their eyes and could see inside, I knew they too were God’s plan. I knew that they were unique, special, worthy of protection, and valued.

I’m blessed to have a young man in my life who is different. When I hear his loud laughter I am reminded time after time of the value of his life. I am reminded how loved he is by his family and how he completes their story. Had the doctors had their way with the pre-birth diagnosis he would be nothing more than another statistic. But God moved.

I know the struggles faced by a loved one who was date raped. Abortion was just legalized and that option was before her. She rejected it to give life knowing that in her small town it wouldn’t be easy. I know of her courage and her struggles.

I’ve heard story after story about how abortion hurts, but I’ve also witnessed the triumph of choosing life. If we could all just share our stories of hope, lend a hand to those who are hurting, hug that mom, reach out to that dad, and just love one another, then we can end this culture of death.

Abortion not only kills an innocent baby, but it kills something inside of all of us. To end this, we must begin by telling women the truth about abortion and exposing the industry’s corruption. We must recognize that all life has value. It begins with you.

What will you do this year? Will you volunteer at your pregnancy center? Host a baby shower at your church for a single mom? Mentor a scared new mom and dad? Write a letter to your elected officials asking them to pass a life-saving law? Give a financial donation to a pro-life group? Everyone can do something.

I will keep fighting, hoping, loving, and praying until there are tears no more.

Virginia’s House of Delegates recognizes January 22nd as the Day of Tears.

On Wednesday, January 18, 2017 Virginia’s House of Delegates adopted a resolution which recognizes January 22nd as the Day of Tears.

The resolution reads,

“WHEREAS, on January 22, 1973, the majority of the members of the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right secured by the Constitution; and

WHEREAS, since that fateful day, over 58 million unborn children have perished; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the House of Delegates, That January 22 hereby be recognized as the Day of Tears in Virginia and that the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia be encouraged to lower their flags to half-staff to mourn the innocents who have lost their lives to abortion.”

The significance of the resolution is that it declares that the January 22, 1973 ruling of the Supreme Court, in the case of Roe v. Wade, is responsible for a staggering loss of life. Over 58 million children never had the chance to laugh, to love or to live.

January 22nd is a grim date in history, filled with sorrow and regret. It is a date that has produced an ocean of tears.

The resolution encourages private citizens, ordinary people who fly an American flag, to lower their flags on January 22nd in mourning for those who have perished by abortion. When people awaken on January 22nd and go about their daily travels, they will see flags lowered in mourning and ask, Who died?

The answer to that question may lead some to conclude that it is time to end the tears.

The Day of Tears is incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia and has been granted non-profit status by the IRS under the Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(C)(3). The Day of Tears name has received Trademark Registration and Protection from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

For additional information, media outlets should contact Anne Fitzgerald, the Executive Director of Day of Tears. Anne can be reached at (540) 255-5398 or anne@dayoftears.com.

Legislators and pro-life groups should contact Ken Adams, the Founder of Day of Tears. Ken can be reached by email at DayofTears@lumos.net.

Virginia’s House of Delegates to vote on the Day of Tears

 

For Immediate Release 

Delegate Ben Cline Introduces HR 268
Designating January 22 as the Day of Tears

December 13, 2016, Waynesboro, Virginia

Contact: Anne Fitzgerald, Executive Director

Anne@DayofTears.com

              Keeping with his commitment to Life, Delegate Ben Cline, R-Rockbridge, introduced on Monday, December 13th House Resolution 268 which designates January 22 as the Day of Tears. The resolution also encourages the citizens of Virginia to lower their flags in mourning for the 58 million innocents who have lost their lives to abortion.

              “The anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision is a sad day for the millions of Virginians who believe in the sanctity of human life,” said Delegate Ben Cline. “The resolution recognizes that anniversary, and it is my hope that the lowering of flags across the Commonwealth will remind Virginians of the tragic destruction of human life that has occurred in the decades since the court’s decision and the widespread support for protecting the unborn.”

              The Day of Tears was born following the revelations of Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal parts. Founder and Team Leader Ken Adams stated, “On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right secured by the Constitution. The pain, regret and grief that have flowed from that fateful ruling have produced an ocean of tears. Therefore, it is fitting that the date, January 22nd, should be called the Day of Tears.”

              The Day of Tears is a national pro-life organization, incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It has been granted non-profit status by the IRS. The Day of Tears name has received Trademark Registration from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

              The message of the Day of Tears is, “January 22nd is the Day of Tears. Please lower your flag.” The organization seeks to name the day that the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a constitutional right and to mourn the unborn children who lost their lives to abortion.

The Text of the Resolution:

A Proposed Resolution of the
House of Delegates 

Designating January 22, in 2017 and in each succeeding year, as the Day of Tears in Virginia.

WHEREAS, on January 22, 1973, the majority of the members of the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right secured by the Constitution; and

WHEREAS, since that fateful day, over 58 million unborn children have perished; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That January 22 shall be called the Day of Tears in Virginia and that the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia are encouraged to lower their flags to half-staff to mourn the innocents who have lost their lives to abortion.

Why January 22nd is the Day of Tears

January 22nd is the Day of Tears.

On January 22, 1973, seven Justices of the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right guaranteed by the US Constitution.Baby boy posing

The Constitution was drafted in 1787 and ratified in 1789. The Bill of Rights was drafted in 1789 and ratified in 1791. During the drafting and ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, no one in the Constitutional Convention, no one in Congress, no one in the State legislatures, none of the Federalists and none of the Anti-Federalists asserted that the Constitution contained a right to abortion.

In the 182 years following the ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, no courts, no academics, no legislators and no legal scholars claimed that the Constitution granted the Supreme Court the authority to legalize abortion.

Then, on January 22, 1973, seven Supreme Court Justices declared that their political opinion on abortion was to be the law of the land. Those seven Justices amended the Constitution without a single vote from an elected official. It was a judicial coup d’état.

Since that grim day, 58 million innocents have lost their lives to abortion. And that is why January 22nd is called the Day of Tears.
