When the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion arrives January 22, a pro-life group is calling on people to draw attention to it in a different fashion. 

Protest ABQ has developed the idea and it's the first time it's been applied to the pro-life movement. Spokesperson Tara shaver says one approach is similar to tactics employed by the late Martin Luther King, Jr.

Shaver says of the pro-life moment: "Peaceful protests, taking to the streets - really drawing attention to what's happening in our nation. And now, with peaceful protests on behalf of the preborn children, is the first aspect of the national call to action."

Phase two is a national strike for January 22 and 23.

"Not go to work, not go to school, and that brings in the strike aspect of the event," says Shaver. "But instead we want people to be prayerful, to fast and to protest, whether that be at a local abortion mill, on the state capitol building."

No place is off limits, and people are being asked to not spend money during those two days.

The hope of the strike and protest is to use peaceful means to send a resounding message to lawmakers and the courts that American people want to see an end to abortion.
