He interviews expert guests and examines the legal issues, the damage abortion does to women, the prayer campaign and much more.

For the first time since 2016, the US Supreme Court heard a case directly dealing with abortion, and it is the first such case in which Justices Neil Gorsuch and Bret Kavanaugh had a vote in the outcome.

At issue was 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 were filed and accepted by the Court, and can be read at the links above. One such brief was submitted by Priests for Life/Rachel’s Vineyard/Silent No More sharing our perspective from the work we do for women wounded by abortion, and another one was submitted by African-American leaders, including Evangelist Alveda King of our Priests for Life team. Read all of the briefs here.

Oral arguments were heard on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 and a decision was released on June 29, 2020. Read the transcript of the oral arguments and listen to the audio recording of the oral arguments (Click on “Oral Argument” audio link on left hand column of page). Read the press release on the final ruling by the Court. Read a press release from Evangelist Alveda King on the final ruling of the Court.

There were various rallies, prayer services, and press conferences on March 3rd and 4th in which Priests for Life took a leading role.

We initiated a prayer campaign for this case (prayer below) and we encouraged people to share it with families, prayer groups, Churches and pro-life organizations.

Prayer for Victory at the US Supreme Court 

God our Father,
You are the Author of Life,
And the Protector of all.

We your people, filled with Your Spirit,
Stand with life and for life,
and we reject whatever destroys life.

Lord, we live in a culture of death,
Where children in the womb are destroyed each day
By an unregulated and uncaring abortion industry
That also wounds and sometimes kills their mothers.

We pray today for the safety 
Of those children and their families.
Protect them from physical and moral dangers,
And let them experience the help of your people.

We pray in particular for the abortion case 
Now being heard at the Supreme Court.
Lord, bless those who are arguing this case
On behalf of the safety of mothers in Louisiana
And throughout our land.

Bless and guide the Justices of the Supreme Court,
And their clerks who assist them.
Give them the wisdom to see
How dangerous the abortion industry is,
And the respect for lawmakers
That allows them to act on behalf of the people they serve.

We pray also for the conversion of abortionists
And of those in our society who support them.
Change their hearts, open their minds,
And give them repentance and new life.

Father, may Your Kingdom come,
And let your people rejoice in the victory of life.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen
