40th Anniversary of ruling on Roe v Wade

Jan. 22 marked the 40th anniversary of our Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v Wade legalizing abortion throughout the United States. Since this ruling in 1973 more than 50 million unborn human beings have been aborted.

Not only has our federal government legalized abortion from conception to birth, it has promoted and funded abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood throughout the country.

My prayer has been and continues to be that this nation will turn from the path of destroying human life to protecting and nurturing the unborn from conception to birth. If the unborn child is unwanted, the best option is adoption.

If a woman has had an abortion, my prayer is that she will turn to our gracious God for forgiveness. He is faithful. If we confess our sins, He will forgive us and cleanse us from all sin for the sake of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who took the punishment we deserve upon Himself at the cross to reconcile us to God.

God loves all people, including the unborn. Every human life is precious in His sight. May we turn to Him as a nation and put our trust in Him. Only then will He heal our land.
