Let everyone submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which derives from God” – Romans 13:1
Reflection: Abortion supporters say the government has no business telling us what we can do in the bedroom. But laws do prohibit theft, statutory rape, child abuse, or murder in bedrooms. Moreover, abortions do not occur in the bedroom. They are committed in publicly advertised facilities, and they tear little children apart. The government does in fact have the duty to stop such violence.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for those who serve you in public office. Give our legislators wisdom to enact laws that preserve the rights of all. Amen.
