Let Us Pray

The Explosion of the Morning-After Pill (July 18, 2022)

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9

Christians all around our nation have been celebrating the recent monumental decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe v. Wade. As pro-life Americans enthusiastically celebrate this historic and life-saving victory that took place on June 24, 2022, now the pro-life movement is coming face to face with a related abortion problem that is on the rise.

Since Roe has been overturned there has been what can only be described as an explosion in the purchasing of the morning-after pill. The morning-after pill brand name is “Plan B” and does not require a prescription to obtain.

This pill is used by women up to three days post sexual activity to prevent ovulation and also to stop the fertilized egg from inserting in the womb. The latter is clearly nothing short of aborting a pregnancy.

The volume of sales for the morning-after pill was so high immediately following the Dobbs decision that Amazon, CVS, and Rite Aid had to limit how many pills an individual could purchase. It has been reported that within a twenty-four-hour time frame after the Dobbs decision that there was a company that saw a 600% increase in purchases of the Plan B pill.

Although we celebrate greatly the overturning of Roe, we must recognize that there remains much work to accomplish in defending life to the greatest extent possible in Kentucky and throughout the United States.

Father, we praise You for the righteous ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade. Lord, help us, to speak Your truth about human sexuality to a culture that by and large lives in immorality. Father, may Americans understand the truth about the morning-after pill and refuse to use it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
