Recently, a YouTube video announced TheEstherCall, an all-female anti-abortion event that will gather in spring 2012. On March 17th, 39 women (representing every year that has passed since Roe v. Wade) will initiate a 21-day walk from an abortion clinic in Houston, TX to Dallas, TX, where Roe v. Wade began. The walk will end in Dallas on Good Friday, where TheEstherCall rally will pray for an end to abortion, just as Esther beseeched the Persian king to spare her people in the Bible.
According to an information packet on TheEstherCall available from the Dallas House of Prayer, a documentary team with an internet channel will livestream the 21-day walk, featuring daily accounts from women on how abortion has impacted their lives.

In the above video, TheCall founder Lou Engle, TheEstherCall founder Tracy Eckert, and Back to Life director Laura Allred invite viewers to participate. Laura describes the 39 women participating in the walk as ""carrying the burden of the Lord for 54 million babies that have been aborted in our nation." At the 0:13 mark, Engle once again compared abortion to racial injustice, referring to abortion as "another Trail of Tears."
"Here we're actually feeling the wound of racism in America, the pain of the inner city. It's the black American Trail of Tears. The Native peoples in our nation have known their Trail of Tears. God wants to heal America. There's another Trail of Tears. Fifty-four million babies have died since Roe v. Wade, 1973, and millions of women have suffered the pain of post-abortion trauma and guilt and shame."Republic of Gilead will keep you posted!
