Concord, NH (LifeNews.com) — Pro-life advocates are heading to New Hampshire to take a stand against abortion as voters there prepare to head to the state’s presidential primary on January 8. Meanwhile, one pro-life advocate is going to the Granite State to specifically oppose the nomination of pro-abortion Republican Rudy Giuliani.
Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition tells LifeNews.com that pro-life advocates are headed to the second presidential battleground state to work with local pro-life groups.
They will hold an event called the New Hampshire Awakening on each of three days prior to the primary.
The event will feature rallies with nationally known speakers and musicians, worship gatherings, a life chain and prayer vigil in downtown Manchester. Some participants will protest outside local abortion businesses.
"National and local organizers feel it is imperative that the voices of the innocent children that have been brutalized through abortion, be heard loud and clear at the start of the presidential primary season," Mahoney told LifeNews.com.
Shannon McGinley, a New Hampshire pro-life advocate, added that "The eyes of the nation and the world will be on New Hampshire."
"In light of that, it is critical for the Christian community to seize this historic opportunity and publicly share the pro-life and faith message," she added.
Meanwhile, Randall Terry and volunteers from several states and New Hampshire plan to confront pro-abortion GOP hopeful Rudy Giuliani in a series of events at three New Hampshire cities.
"We will tear down the conservative facade that Rudy has built — to keep him from lying and seducing his way into the White House," Terry told LifeNews.com.
Terry calls the events the "Stop Rudy Campaign" he hopes it will help move votes from Giuliani to other candidates and make it more difficult for him to win the nomination.
