I Prayed have prayed
Father, forgive our nation for this continued evil and sin. Help our nations leaders to stand against abortion and give them a passion to stand against it.

IFA intercessors have prayed fervently for Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn and rejoiced when the citizens of Lubbock, Texas made their city the the largest Sanctuary City for the Unborn. Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit Monday against the City of Lubbock. The lawsuit attacks the ordinance that bans abortion within city limits, claiming the policy violates the so-called “right” to abortion and asserts passing the ordinance was outside the city’s legal authority.

Earlier this month, Lubbockites overwhelmingly voted in favor of Proposition A, making the town the 23rd Texas city with an active ordinance.

This lawsuit follows a failed attempt by the ACLU back in February 2020 to block ordinances in seven other cities. The ACLU eventually dropped the lawsuit, and Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Rusk, Gary, and Wells are still Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn with strong ordinances in effect.

Texas Right to Life is confident the Pro-Life ordinance will hold up in court and the desperate suit will be dismissed. We also appreciate Lubbockites continuing to show great courage in standing up against the abortion industry.

The Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinance passed by Lubbock is pertinent and enforceable, challenging Planned Parenthood’s presence in Lubbock. Abortionists will be liable to civil lawsuits and criminal penalties upon the reversal of Roe v. Wade. Under this ordinance, women who may be seeking abortions are protected from any penalties and are in no way criminally or civilly liable.

Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz, a native West Texan and graduate of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, responded to the lawsuit:

“Unsurprisingly, Planned Parenthood, which profits off the death of preborn children, is throwing a hodgepodge of complaints at the court and seeing what they can get to stick. In passing the ordinance, Lubbockites acted within their constitutional rights to self-governance and within the scope of current U.S. Supreme Court abortion jurisprudence. The ordinance language is solid and was carefully drafted in expectation of the abortion industry filing a lawsuit.”

As always, we are not afraid for Pro-Life policies to be challenged in court; we watched the abortion industry try to stop these ordinances at city hall, but when citizens and local leaders stood strong, the pro-abortion forces realized their only hope is to intimidate cities with lawsuits. Texas Right to Life looks forward to standing alongside the City of Lubbock.

Thank You Lord Jesus Christ for stepping in and hearing all the prayers for the sweet babies … Lord thank you for the Bold, Strong and Determined men and women that are fighting for Life! Lord you are the only giver of life and we have no authority to take it. Lord forgive us all for not standing up sooner. Let the scales fall from the eyes of the People that want to kill babies on demand let their hearts be opened to Love Your Creation as you love them. Continue praying for all The babies!

Father, I pray You will continue to deny ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and this administration’s desire to expand abortion in our nation and in the world. I pray that no child conceived would be unwanted and this wicked “business” would fail to exist. I praise You and thank You for the victories in these Texas cities and pray for a total Godly victory in the US and throughout Your creation. Jesus said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” Jesus Christ is Your answer, our answer and final. In His Powerful Name I agree and pray.

The Biden Administration’s ‘goal of making abortion available in every zip code of the nation,’ Bishop Strickland urged pro-lifers to push back and fight for life on the local level, stating, “We need to fight from the other direction and say Zip Code by Zip Code – NO!” https://www.liveaction.org/news/city-poynor-texas-28th-sanctuary-unborn/
