A Growing Secular Pro-Life Movement
A Growing Secular Pro-Life Movement
Despite the media’s narrative, pro-life atheists do exist, and they are just as passionate about the unborn as believers. Let’s pray that God continues to make the scientific truth of life at conception known.
From LifeNews.com. One does not have to be a Christian to believe that every human being deserves a right to life, leaders of Secular Pro-Life told the Christian Post this week.
Pray for your fellow intercessor.
Founder Kelsey Hazzard and executive director Monica Snyder said their organization represents atheists and agnostics who believe it is wrong to abort an unborn baby. The two also pushed back against a new strategy abortion activists are employing that challenges abortion bans on religious freedom grounds.
Snyder told the Christian Post that her pro-life beliefs are rooted in scientific fact.
“It’s a biological fact” that human life begins at conception, she said. “You don’t need to be religious to recognize biological facts, and you don’t need to be religious to believe all humans are morally valuable.”
But new lawsuits from abortion activists in Kentucky, Indiana, Idaho, Missouri and Texas argue the contrary, claiming state abortion bans violate their religious freedom by imposing Christian beliefs on others. So far, several Jewish women have filed lawsuits in Kentucky and Indiana and the Satanic Temple filed lawsuits in four states, both claiming aborting unborn babies is part of their religious practices.
Hazzard, a lawyer and pro-life atheist, pushed back against these claims, saying religious freedom does not justify destroying the life and rights of a child. …
Although Christians make up a large part of the pro-life movement, the belief that human rights apply to all human beings is not just Christian. …

When God’s word s being upheld and obeyed by unbelievers we remember What Jesus said to a seeker:
When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.
So encouraged since blind eyes are being open. We Christians are not alone. May these indviduals, now be opened to hear and receive that God news of Jesus.
Thank you Jesus for what you are doing in this battle for life. Thank you for hearing our prayers.
This statement from the article is so misleading! “Several Jewish women have file a lawsuit claiming aborting unborn babies is part of their religious practices.”
Actually, the lawsuit states,
“Jewish law teaches that human life does not begin at conception and abortions are required in some circumstances.” As in the risk of passing along genetic anomalies…forced to carry to term and suffer and the fetus who will become a baby will have to suffer as well,’”
BUT…. this is not settled in the Jewish faith. Other rabbis say Judaism condemns abortion, religious texts recognize the value of babies in the womb and condemn the murder of innocent human beings, including those not yet born.

“religious freedom does not justify destroying the life and rights of a child. …” Kelsey Hazzard
“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.” Charles Spurgeon.
Dear Abba Father, I believe Your hand is upon Kelsey and Monica, two who are ready for harvest. Jesus says no one can come to Him unless it is granted by You. Will You grant this for these women so their mission can be more than their own? Only in Your power they will know the ultimate victory. Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Holy Spirit. Amen
God moves in mysterious ways. His ways are far above anything mortals understand. He created all things and he knows the beginning and the end of all things. May he give wisdom to all involved that his will be done.
I think when you are fighting militant Satanists, you need all the help you can get!
I hadn’t heard about this particular group before but God will use anything we let to get His work done!!
