After Roe (December 3, 2021)

“Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.” – Exodus 23:7

Since January 22, 1973, America has been covered and plagued with a deep dark crimson stain that continues to this very day. This crimson and reddened tint upon America comes from the innocent bloodshed of over 62 million Americans who have been massacred in the womb since the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

On Wednesday, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments for the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health which provides the best opportunity to overturn Roe since the 1973 decision and remove this egregious stain on America. There is great optimism that this case will bring an end to the terror that Roe has brought upon our nation, but even if it is another case in the future, Roe’s rule of horror must end.

After Roe, the war to defend human life will completely transition to the states, where each individual state will decide its own regulations on abortion. Kentucky is well positioned to ban nearly all abortions, both chemical and surgical. The Family Foundation helped pass a “trigger law” that bans abortions in nearly all circumstances once Roe is overturned.

Our Commonwealth will be one of the most life-honoring states in the nation after Roe. However, there will still be much work to accomplish to protect life, including Kentucky’s ‘Yes for Life’ Constitutional Amendment on the ballot in November of 2022.

Father, please empower the U.S. Supreme Court Justices to courageously uphold the Mississippi pro-life law being considered in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case. Father, we pray that one day America will be a nation that is post-Roe. May Kentucky be a safe harbor for the innocent in the womb. Lord, we pray for women today who are considering an abortion, give them the insight and wisdom they need to choose life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
