Wade decision approaching, Heartbeat International and at least 10 other pro-life organizations are partnering to launch, an interactive website commemorating the anniversary of Roe and Doe v. Bolton.

Organizers hope to deliver 1.2 million postcards to the White House, symbolizing the number of children aborted in the U.S. each year.

The new web site offers interactive tools and historical information regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to federally legalize abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. also serves as the hosting platform for a national hour of prayer via webcast at 3 p.m. on January 22. Visitors can register without charge for the online prayer hour at beginning immediately and up until the time of the event, which will be led by the National Pro-Life Religious Council.
