I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray against this thinly-veiled effort to protect abortion in the state of Idaho. Get rid of abortion in this state, God, and lead other states to follow its example.

The Department of Justice has sued the state of Idaho over its pro-life legislation, claiming that it violates federal law. Is this what our federal employees should be doing with our tax dollars? What do you think of this politicizing and weaponizing of the DOJ?

From The Daily Wire. The Department of Justice sued the state of Idaho on Tuesday over its near-universal ban on abortions, the first lawsuit of its kind since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Who is praying on the wall?

 

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the lawsuit in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. The Biden administration’s chief prosecutor claimed that the Idaho law illegally restricts access to abortion in some cases where the life of the mother is at risk….

“The State of Idaho, however, has passed a near-absolute ban on abortion. Once the Idaho law takes effect on August 25, 2022, Idaho Code § 18-622 will make it a felony to perform an abortion in all but extremely narrow circumstances,” the lawsuit states. “The Idaho law would make it a criminal offense for doctors to comply with [Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act] requirement to provide stabilizing treatment, even where a doctor determines that abortion is the medical treatment necessary to prevent a patient from suffering severe health risks or even death.”

Governor Brad Little (R-ID) said the lawsuit amounted to “federal meddling” in the state’s newly-secured authority to set abortion law. Biden “continues to ignore issues that really should demand his attention – like crushing inflation and the open border with Mexico,” Little said.

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden issued a separate statement saying the federal government is misinterpreting federal law to find conflict where none exists….

Praise the Lord. We will protect the right to life in this state in Jesus name. Federal government will not usurp the rights of the individual states to make and uphold their laws.

The DOJ is totally corrupted and out of its jurisdiction. I pray Lord Jesus that you will protect us from this evil that has corrupted our judicial system. It is a horrible cancer that is causing much damage to our citizens and our government. Only you Lord can cure this cancer. In Jesus name I pray, may your will be done. Amen.

Chuck Pierce prophesied 23 righteous states. It’s time for judgment on life taking states. Flee them. Feds have no jurisdiction. But they want more more more power.

FATHER, You see how this administration is fighting so hard for murdering babies. It grieves us as it does You, Lord. Show them. No matter what it take for them to understand, Lord, show them. Open their hearts so that they cannot be closed off again. Hold them accountable for the vehemence with which they seek approval. And slam shut the legal avenues as dead ends. You are the real Supreme Court and we petition You to claim them out of order! In Your Righteous Name

The government is overreaching their constitutional authority. We ask Father, that the courts would view this as such and shut it down. May your people be faithful to pray against this and see it come to nothing. And may our government use tax money for legitimate uses.

This is now a states rights issue! Why is this Administration wasting my tax dollars on this? Does not matter where you stand on the abortion issue – that is up to the states.

I wish you would have stated exactly what the Idaho law actually says. By only quoting the Attorney General, it leaves readers to believe his lies are true.
As an Idaho resident, this greatly greives me greatly. I’m proud my state is standing up for the unborn. But we also care about the mother and her medical condition, and the doctors doing all that is necessary for her.
I pray for the truth. I pray the lies will be exposed. I pray for strength and wisdom for Idaho’s Supreme Court Justices. I pray for our Attorney General. I pray for Idaho’s precious unborn babies. And I pray for God’s mercy and His will to be done.

Lord, we pray for ID. Give them strength, knowledge and wisdom in the face of Fed gov’t tyranny. We pray for Merrick Garland. He is so lost Lord. Save him if possible. Each day You reveal to us why he was never confirmed to the SC and just how much the Obama administration “his” from Americans about who Garland truly is. We pray for You to change his heart but to also remove him from his position.
Give victory to ID and all the babies that You are the creator of. In Jesus name amen.

I pray that the state of Idaho will stand STRONG against abortion. I pray that this lawsuit will fizzle out, and will not win. I pray for God’s hand of protection around those in Idaho who stand for what’s right.

Amen.

I am absolutely prolife. The two medical conditions I would say would say would be 1) ectopic, 2) what’s called missed abortion.
In the first, the pregnancy is not in the uterus. It is usually in the Fallopian tube but can also be in the pelvis. There are very few exceptions for the pelvic cavity as babies don’t get the nutrients they need to thrive. If we can “remove and transplant to the uterus” there might be a greater chance of survival, however there is an issue of disrupting the placental attachment from the pelvis. Ectopics in the tube are a medical emergency for mom’s. Can lead to severe bleeding into the pelvis when it rupture, and lead to death. If surgery is done prior to that point, mom can be spared. Methotrexate can be given to dissolve cells to help prevent rupture, as an alternative.
At times as well, embryonic cells grow to a certain point and then stop. This can be a chemical pregnancy or a missed abortion (the body doesn’t recognize the fetus is no longer alive and does not pass on its own). All situations heartbreaking for the mom/dad.
In these cases, I feel would be exceptions and only these. I would want confirmation with blood work and/or ultrasound, which almost all docs would do. Almost all OB’s would perform these procedures and there are some that, much less that also perform abortions.
Thought? I’m up for changing my stance, if need be….

    You make a good case, though I’m not totally comfortable with it. So I pray that God’s will be done. And May He interview in these cases.

Lord, help Idahoans stand firm in their decision to state sovereignty. Thank You for their stance on life. Lord, Merrick Garland is not following Biblical principles. Change his heart and mind, or please move him out of office. Block the attempts of the DOJ in this federal government overreach. Take away their money. Thank You. Amen.

Father God,
In the name of Jesus I ask You to protect the state of Idaho’s right to determine laws for the citizens of that state. I ask that You use all Your power to defeat the federal Department of Justice’s lawsuit against Idaho’s abortion law, and remove every corrupt person in the federal government.
Amen.

    Amen. I am happy to read of the lawsuit to my new adopted state. It’s one reason my husband and I recently moved to Idaho from Washington. There is life here; there is freedom for every person, even in the womb.
    It doesn’t take long and you notice people are happier living here. God’s favor is on this state.
    (Budget surplus $1.9 billion, to name one.) We have lots of liberal neighbors and they are reaping the benefits and don’t understand why. Yet!
    Our nation, I believe, will follow suit.

    Rochelle, I agree that I want God to defeat the Feds DOJ lawsuit. I don’t mean to be facetious, but I don’t think the Creator God is going to need to use all His power. I agree with you about removing every corrupt person in our Federal Slums of the Bureaucracy.
