Ricky Warren and his grandson Brent Warren, 8, hammer in crosses in front of the Natchez gazebo on the bluff in preparation for a memorial service for the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion. The Warren’s and several other volunteers placed 140 crosses to symbolize the 140 abortions that happen every hour in the United States.
