OKLAHOMA CITY -

Anti-abortion activists from around the state unite at the state capitol to send a message to lawmakers.

Wednesday's 21st annual "Rose Day" comes as they consider two controversial bills this legislative session.

Pro-Life supporters, armed with roses, are encouraging state senators and representatives to support the anti-abortion movement.

The bills under consideration this year would grant "personhood" status to a fertilized egg and require pregnant women to listen to a heartbeat of the fetus before having an abortion.

Wednesday's event was sponsored by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.
