Day of Mourning websiteA grassroots activist is promoting a day of mourning on February 23 to demonstrate Americans not only oppose abortion but are sorrowful for their nation that allows it.

To publicly show support for life, Elizabeth Johnston suggests wearing black that day, or refusing to shop or shuttering your own business for the day.

The call for a day of mourning comes after New York passed a law allowing abortion up until birth.

The Day of Mourning website states the suggestion to close your doors in protest follows the example of Jon Speed, a New York bookstore owner who protested that state's controversial law by turning off the lights and locking the door for a day.

The website, in fact, includes a printable poster to inform the public why the business is temporarily closed. 

Johnston

Johnston, better known as The Activist Mommy, promoted the Day of Mourning on the "Focal Point" program on American Family Radio, telling host Bryan Fischer that the ultimate goal is to "repent for the sin of abortions" in America.  

To rally New York pro-lifers to pray and repent, Johnston told the program that a Feb. 23 rally is planned for 1 p.m. at the Empire State Convention Center, located in Albany.

Scheduled speakers include the Benham brothers, pro-life activists Justin Reeder and David Harris Jr., abortion survivor Blythe Mullen, and Speed, the business owner.

"We are getting serious with God," Johnston told the radio program, "getting on our faces before God and repenting for the sin of abortion."
