Oklahoma State Capitol | 11:30am


Keynote Speaker

Abby Johnson

Abby Johnson

Former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director | Author | Speaker

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in. However, she experienced a “change of heart” while participating in an ultrasound-guided abortion procedure. Today, Abby travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry.

Her story has been a media sensation and she is often featured on FOX News and numerous other print and media programs. She is also the author of the nationally best-selling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit. The movie adaption Unplanned The Movie was released in the Spring of 2019.

About Rose Day

Each year, hundreds gather at the Capitol at the beginning of the new legislative session to promote and support the lives of unborn babies by meeting with their state senators and representatives and presenting them red roses, which represent the sanctity of the unborn. Attendees are encouraged to present roses to their representative, senator, Lieutenant Governor and Governor.

Prior to the Rose Day Rally, pro-life advocates of all ages arrived with bushels of roses as soon as the Capitol doors opened. Rose Day attendees were encouraged to pass out roses to their state legislators to symbolize their stance in the pro-life movement. Beginning in the morning, individuals and families began walking the State Capitol halls, delivering roses and pro-life messages to elected officials at the Capitol. “Christians and other pro-life Oklahomans made a powerful statement by bringing red roses for their elected officials, as a symbol of their belief in the sanctity of human life and pro-life views,” said Brian Hobbs

The 2020 Rose Day Pro-Life Rally is set for Wed., Feb. 5 and is expected to draw more than 1,000 supporters from across the state.

Rose Day, now in its 29th year, is organized by Oklahoma Baptists and other pro-life organizations, who are asking pastors and church members from across the state to attend.

“In the nearly 30 years of Rose Day, important legislation has been passed that has helped save lives. There is so much more we must do to end the barbaric practice of abortion in Oklahoma. We are asking Oklahoma Baptists to step up, to be part of Rose Day,” said Blake Gideon, senior pastor of Edmond, First who is serving as Oklahoma Baptists’ president.

Please note – we do not store your address, it is only used as a lookup reference

If Internet access is unavailable, call: The House switchboard at: (405) 521-2711or (800) 522-8502 The Senate switchboard at: (405) 524-0126 Should you write, fax or email a Representative or Senator: (Your legislator’s name) Oklahoma State Senate or House State Capitol Building 2300 North Lincoln Boulevard Oklahoma City, OK 73105 In order to be effective in influencing legislation, the right people must be contacted in the right way. Always be polite and identify:

Who you are, where you live, your address, and your phone number

Do this for every form of communication you use – a call, fax or email without this information will be ignored by most legislators. Never cover more than one bill at a time, and be brief, but polite. You may contact a legislature by phone, fax, email or mail, but it is best to use three methods of communication. By contacting a legislator and key people, (such as committee chairs and members and conferees) a powerful message is sent that a certain bill or issue is important to Oklahomans. Remember, a non-voter or person who lives outside the legislator’s district carries less weight than a voter who lives in the district, but all communication is important. If the line is busy… do not give up.
