In the UK another person is in trouble for their Silent Prayers

Silent Prayer Abortion

1Peter 4:12-14 “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

Important Takeaways:

  • Wake-Up Call: Second Person Faces Criminal Record For Silently Praying In The UK
  • A man from Southampton, U.K., has been fined for praying near an abortion facility in Bournemouth.
  • Adam Smith-Connor, a British army veteran, stood still and silent on Ophir Road, a public street, for a few minutes before being approached by “community safety accredited officers,” according to an article at adf.uk
  • The officers warned him he was in an area under a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO), which establishes a “safe zone” around abortion clinics and prohibits “engaging in any act of approval/disapproval,” including praying. The abortion clinic in Bournemouth is the fifth one in the country to have this type of censorship zone, according to local news reports.
  • After repeatedly being asked what the nature of his prayer was, Smith-Connor told authorities he was praying for his son who died by abortion 22 years ago, a decision that still haunts him to this day.
  • “I’m sorry for your loss,” the council officer told Smith-Connor. “But ultimately, I have to go along with the guidelines of the Public Space Protection Order, to say that we are in the belief that therefore you are in breach of clause 4a, which says about prayer, and also acts of disapproval …”
  • He would never have imagined that praying silently would put him at risk for criminal record.
  • “In the past, I assisted with abortions in hospital as part of my army medical training, but now I pray for those who perform abortions, because I realize how harmful abortion is to women and families, and that every single human life is valuable—no matter how small,” he said. “Most of all, I’m moved to pray because of what happened to my son.”
  • “Nobody should be criminalized for what they believe—especially not when they express that belief silently, in the privacy of their own minds,” said Jeremiah Igunnubole, legal counsel for ADF UK

Mike Pompeo addresses that the fight is not over in the March for Life

  • Amid The Most Anti-Life Admin In History It Has Never Been More Important To March For Life
  • This week, those of us who believe in the sanctity of life for all persons, born and unborn, have a chance to show America that this fight is far from finished.
  • …we should also remember a crucial fact: this ruling did not outlaw abortion. Rather, it returned the right to vote on abortion to the states. This crucial judgment – of whether dignity inheres in all life, born or unborn – should no longer be settled in courts.  Instead, it will be argued and voted upon in state legislatures, where the hearts and minds of the American people are expressed in the laws that govern each state in our Union.
  • In 20 states, there are few legal restrictions on abortion, if there are any at all. Only 12 states have passed total bans.  This divide reveals a tough reality… If we who believe in the inviolability of the unborn are unable to convince our fellow Americans of this essential truth, the reversal of Roe will mean little in the long run.  This is not the time to rest on our laurels; it is the time to advance and triumph.
  • Shortly after the Dobbs decision was released, President Biden issued an Executive order that directed Medicaid funds to be used for women seeking an out-of-state abortion. He rescinded the Mexico City Policy, which ensured the taxpayer dollars of Americans did not fund abortions overseas.
  • Earlier this month, the Biden Administration formalized a process to allow retail pharmacies to sell abortion pills… This means that you can obtain the means to an abortion without so much as being seen in person by a healthcare provider, let alone having an ultrasound taken. These pills introduce real short and long-term risk to young women, but the Biden Administration has ignored these dangers in its haste to make abortive medication widely available.
  • Nearly half of Americans aged 18-34 support the right to abortion under any circumstances. These are the hearts and minds we have to change.
  • To do this, we must offer a different vision, one in which civil society and our state policy work together to promote the family, care for women who are in crisis and ensure every child has a stable home. That means reforming our broken foster care system, funding and supporting the nearly 2,700 pro-life Pregnancy Resource Centers across America, and making the adoption process safer and easier

Calling ‘Evil Good, And Good Evil’: New York Gov. Says God Is On The Side Of Abortion

She says God is on the side of abortion. And she used a church to say it.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat who succeeded scandal-plagued Andrew Cuomo in 2021, has announced the awarding of $13.4 million in state grants to 37 New York abortion providers during a news conference held at Judson Memorial Church near Washington Square Park in Manhattan.

The Oct. 12 news conference received light press, and even fewer news outlets reported her quotes about God being on the side of abortion or the fact the news conference was held in a church. In June, Hochul described pro-lifers as “Neanderthals.”

Hochul commended “everyone involved in this congregation for inspiring us and letting us know that God is out there on our side as we continue to make sure that women have the rights that are God-given rights,” according to a report in the Albany Update, an electronic newsletter from New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms. “Light does prevail over darkness,” Hochul said. “And while there has been a dark pall cast over our nation in the aftermath of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, let that light continue to shine right here in the State of New York.”

A new low for Senator Warren in bullying Pregnancy Centers

Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder”

Important Takeaways:

  • Senator Warren, other top Democrats use bullying to stop pregnancy help groups from assisting moms
  • Back in July when she uttered the absurd claim that pregnancy help centers torture women and should be shut down “all around the country,” the Massachusetts Democrat has pulled another political stunt to appease her pro-abortion supporters.
  • Warren and a handful of pro-abortion colleagues in the U.S. Senate sent a slanderous letter to Heartbeat International this week purportedly seeking answers on Heartbeat’s data collection practices and policies.
  • Suggesting that pregnancy help centers “luring pregnant people” “by using a variety of false and misleading tactics,”
  • Also implying that no oversight or accountability, implying that this information will be handed over to, wait for it, “abortion bounty hunters.”
  • One might ask whether the rabid intent on assailing pregnancy help organizations stems at all from the fact that each of these senators has received campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood.

Gavin Newsom uses the words of Jesus to promote Abortion in Texas, Oklahoma, and Mississippi

Leviticus 24:17 “Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death.”

Important Takeaways

  • Christians slam Newsom for ‘disgusting’ pro-abortion billboards quoting Jesus: ‘Satanic’
  • Last week, Newsom took to Twitter to tout the billboards his gubernatorial campaign is erecting in Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and four other “anti-freedom” states where abortion is restricted or outlawed.
  • Some versions of the billboards, all of which urge women in such states to come to California to get abortions, advertise the state’s easily obtainable abortions by quoting Mark 12:31, where Jesus says, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”
  • “The idea that Newsom is using the words of Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures, to promote the killing of unborn children as somehow loving and commanded by God is quite frankly disgusting,” said Jay Sekulow

Wildfires destroying lives, Power Grid on verge of blackouts and shut downs, but Newsom uses millions to become national Hub for Abortions

Proverbs 6:16-19 “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Important Takeaways:

  • Next Level Abortion Hub: CA Launches $1M Website to Promote Abortion for Out-of-State Teens, Illegal Immigrants, Everyone

Under Title 9 abortion is the moral equivalent of giving birth

Proverbs 6:16-19 “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Important Takeaways:

  • The Morning Briefing: ‘Good Catholic’ Biden Wants to Normalize Abortion in a Sinister Way
  • Under Title IX the Daily Signal found
  • “The Biden administration wants to redefine pregnancy to include childbirth, lactation, and ‘termination of pregnancy’—that is, abortion,” explains Melanie Israel of the Daily Signal. “The administration’s three-pronged definition of pregnancy makes a notable departure from previous ones. Under Title IX now, women are protected from discrimination if they get an abortion. This means that with a doctor’s note, women receive medical leave from class or a sports team to recover.”
  • “Abortion currently is a distinct issue that falls under ‘sex discrimination,’ but under the Biden administration’s change, abortion would be included as an aspect of pregnancy,” Israel continues.
  • And the distinction is extremely consequential. Under Biden’s revised definition, abortion would be morally equivalent to carrying a child to term, giving birth, and breastfeeding.
