Richmond, Virginia will be ground zero for a nationwide event called "Day of Mourning" planned for Saturday, April 6.
The grassroots movement is being called a solemn act of repentance for the abortion of millions of innocent babies in America.
"We are just asking God to give us his heart because clearly we do not have his heart when we are executing his children in cold blood," Elizabeth Johnston, said in an interview on the CBN News show Prayer Link.
Johnston, better known as the Activist Mommy, said she and organizers chose Virginia for the site of "Day of Mourning" because of past comments Gov. Ralph Northam made during an interview with Washington, D.C., radio station WTOP back in 2017.
The program's host asked Northam if he supported the bill that would allow a woman to receive an abortion even while she was going into labor.
"If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen," Northam responded. "The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated, if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother."
Johnston said, "The things that Governor Northam said have just grieved the Virginia citizenry, and we are coming to Richmond Virginia."
Last month, tens of thousands attended the first "Day of Mourning" event that was held in New York. The event was held there because of The Empire State's extreme pro-abortion law that allows unborn babies to be aborted right up until the moment of birth.
"We had almost 4,000 people in attendance and 40,000 people watching via live stream, all at the same time," explained Johnston. "All repenting and mourning together over the 46 years of bloodshed."
"We had dozens of pastors on the stage, New York pastors, on their faces before God, repenting for their silence and apathy over the last 46 years," she added. "I cannot tell you how powerful this movement is. We have touched the heart of God. We have tapped into something."
