The LA Times lamented recently about what they consider to be attacks on the pro-abortion lobby. The article, “The war on abortion rights,” is partially accurate in stating that the pro-life movement is on the attack against the abortion lobby. This is war and we must continue to engage the seemingly unusual weapons of love and truth to set the captives free. But this is not just a war on abortion rights but a war between good and evil and can only be won on our knees as I blogged the other day.
For example a few days ago a Priests for Life pastoral team walked the halls of Congress in support of the fetal pain capable act that would ban abortions in D.C. after 20 weeks except to save the life of the mother. Many prayers were said for this effort and the good news is the bill is out of committee and heading to the House for a vote.
We are winning the war as more pro-life legislation has been passed across the country this year than in previous years. But even as we work our way to victory, thousands of innocent babies are killed every day before they have the chance to take their first breath. The numbers are staggering, not just in America but all over the world.
So, pray my brothers and sisters. Pray for the unborn, pray for the mothers struggling with their decisions to choose life, pray for the staffs that work in abortion centers all over the world, pray for the abortionists that they will repent and ask for forgiveness for all the lives they have taken, and last but not least pray for healing of our land and mercy from our Heavenly Father. Amen.
