“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” – Psalm 126:3
Pro-life Kentuckians join with the Psalmist today by proclaiming that “the LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Believers have reason to proclaim this verse every day, but specifically, believers in the Commonwealth can shout this verse today because of the recent, enormous, pro-life victory at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Yesterday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in favor of KY Attorney General Daniel Cameron in the case of Cameron v. EMW Women’s Surgical Center. The origin of this case goes back to the Legislative Session of 2018, when the Kentucky General Assembly passed House Bill 454, with the support of The Family Foundation. This bill is Kentucky’s ban on live dismemberment abortion.
The bill states that it, “prohibits an abortion on a pregnant woman that will result in the bodily dismemberment, crushing, or human vivisection of the unborn child when the probably post-fertilization age of the unborn child is 11 weeks or greater, except in the case of a medical emergency.”
One of Kentucky’s two abortion mills, the EMW Women’s Surgical Center, filed a lawsuit against the bill and thus allowed the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to rule to uphold an injunction against the law. Gov. Beshear refused to continue defending House Bill 454, which led to Attorney General Cameron trying to step in to defend the law. Unfortunately, his effort was initially rejected.
Thankfully, on October 12, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court heard Attorney General Cameron’s request to intervene to defend Kentucky’s ban on live dismemberment abortion. Praise be to God, yesterday, the U.S. Supreme ruled overwhelmingly to allow Attorney General Daniel Cameron to defend Kentucky’s ban on dismemberment abortions.
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, we praise You, for this incredible pro-life victory at the U.S. Supreme Court that upholds the dignity of human life. Lord, thank You, for Attorney General Cameron’s courage and desire to protect human life, even those in the womb. Father. May abortion become completely outlawed in Kentucky and America soon. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
