Anti-abortion activists expected at Okla. Capitol

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Hundreds of anti-abortion activists are expected in Oklahoma City for the annual Rose Day at the state Capitol.

The event on Wednesday is sponsored by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. Hundreds of activists typically roam the halls, hand out red roses to lawmakers and urge them to support anti-abortion legislation.

This year's featured speaker is Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. He will address the group about 11:45 a.m. in the House chamber.

Among the abortion-related bills being considered by legislators this year is a ban on embryonic stem cell research. A measure to impose the stem cell ban passed Tuesday in a House committee.
