When we have done all we can in our own power, we must give our petitions to God through prayer.
The loony left has always supported abortion and nearly all forms of feminism that supports this brand of child murder. But liberal activist and political leaders have now set off the sleeping right with what accounts to infanticide. The Virginia law that would make abortion legal up to birth set off a title wave of anti-abortion of laws to counter Virginia’s immoral and sinful actions.
When Republican lawmakers in Alabama wrote a new bill that would outlaw almost all abortions, they did not pretend that it complied with federal law or that it would go into effect anytime soon. They wrote the bill and signed it into law to challenge Roe v. Wade in the US Supreme Court.
For years, conservatives and evangelicals in Southern and Midwestern states have been passing laws that protect the unborn or give expecting mothers a waiting Peoria. In many cases there is a waiting peorid as long as 72 hours for the procedure after receiving counseling, Additionally, other bans include surgical abortion methods, limiting state Medicaid programs from covering most abortions. These measures greatly reduced the number of abortions and saved the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of infants.
Thankfully, pro-life organizations and lawmakers are pursuing even more aggressive legal strategy. Now with a “right” leaning U.S. Supreme Court, states are passing more life saving restrictions and near-total bans in a deliberate attempt to trigger a lawsuit that could push the Supreme Court to overturn its deadly 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision.
Last month, Georgia followed Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio to become the fourth state this year to outlaw abortion once a fetal “heartbeat” is detected, typically at around six weeks — before most women know they are pregnant.
Other states like Alabama has also passed another strict abortion law, the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which would ban abortion from the moment of conception. Any doctor who terminates a pregnancy in any circumstance, other than to save a woman’s life, could face up to 99 years in prison. This is another great leap in the right and moral direction.
Now is the time to pray for the innocent, the weak… the babies our nation refuse to call human and provide them rights too. But first, we must pray for our President, Vice President the Supreme Court and other Christian political leaders to prevent infanticide. The Bible calls us to pray for our leaders to make the right choice in this debate over life and death..
First Timothy 2:1-2 gives us such a mandate. “First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.”
I urge you to pray for the unborn and contact your local Senate, House and state Governor and encourage them to enact further laws to prevent the murder of infants at the hands of liberals who are more worried about profit and votes than the rights of the most defenseless. With your help and prayers we can once again protect the children God has given all of us.
