Pray for Victory at the U.S. Supreme Court
January 31, 2020
For the first time since 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a case directly dealing with abortion, and it is the first such case in which Justices Neil Gorsuch and Bret Kavanaugh will have a vote in the outcome.
At issue is a Louisiana law, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act, by which, among other things, abortionists are required to have hospital admitting privileges in nearby hospitals.
At issue likewise is a cross-petition filed by Louisiana challenging the standing of abortionists to sue on behalf of women who get abortions. As we know, these abortionists do not have any close relationship with these women, and it is a conflict of interest for them to challenge in court the very regulations that would protect these women from actions of these same abortionists.
Briefs from members of Congress and from many pro-life groups, including Priests for Life, have been filed and can be read at the end of this alert.
Oral arguments will be heard on Wednesday, March 4. As usually happens, both pro-life and pro-abortion groups will be present outside the Court that day with speeches and chants. A decision is expected in late June.
From today until the decision is released, we all need to be praying for a pro-life outcome, so I have organized a prayer campaign and I am asking you to join it.
Please click the link below and follow the instructions so that you can let me know you will participate, and I can give you the prayer and more information about the case.
Then please also share this information with your families, prayer groups, Churches and pro-life organizations.
Thank you and God bless you!
