I Prayed have prayed
Father, we rejoice at the news that life is affirmed and protected in Arkansas. We seal that decision and pray that it would not be overturned!

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed a law Tuesday to ban the killing of unborn babies in abortions throughout the state.

Prior to signing the law, the Republican governor expressed hopes that it will prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade, KNWA News 5 reports. . . .

The Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act (Senate Bill 6) passed the state legislature by a strong majority. If enacted, the bill would ban all abortions in the state. The only exceptions would be if the mother’s life or health are at risk. Abortionists who violate the ban would face up to 10 years in prison. Women would not be punished.

“Arkansas is the most pro-life state in the nation and never have our constituents or Arkansans ever voted for abortion in Arkansas,” said state Rep. Mary Bentley, R-Perryville, the lead sponsor of the bill in the House.

The law could protect nearly 3,000 unborn babies from abortions in Arkansas every year. However, the American Civil Liberties Union already has promised to file a legal challenge. . .

State Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, the lead sponsor of the bill, said the legal challenge is part of the point, and he hopes it will prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. But some pro-life leaders expressed concerns about the possibility of a legal challenge backfiring, saying the courts could instead decide to solidify the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby.

Some pro-lifers have renewed hope that the Supreme Court will uphold an abortion ban and overturn Roe v. Wade.  . . .

Though the high court currently has a conservative majority, Chief Justice John Roberts, who was nominated by a Republican president, has sided with the liberal justices on a number of occasions.

In 1973, the Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion under Roe v. Wade, and instead forced states to legalize abortion on demand. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks. . . .

Father, in Jesus’ Name thank you for Arkansas’ stand on abortion. Lord, I pray you will move all people in America to value the lives of the unborn, and create an atmosphere of “reverance for life”. I pray that the ACLU’s influence will be nil and void in this matter. Thank you for Senator Rapert. Guard, guide, protect him and his family. Strengthen all individuals and organizations that work daily to protect the unborn, and
foster legislation which will bring an end to abortion.

I pray for changes being sought by many who live in California Thank you for citizens in California who are working hard to bring about leadership that is just and faithful to Your Word, Lord. I pray for their success.

honor, glory, praise to Your Holy Name. Amen

In our constitutional republic, and codified in the tenth amendment, the U.S. Supreme Court never had the right to pass any sort of judgement regarding abortion. It is not part of their enumerated powers and states need to just nullify anything the Supreme Court says in this regard. Do not let the Supreme Court dictate whether a state can or cannot make laws protecting the right to life of the unborn! States MUST learn to stand up to the federal government and start operating in accordance with the constitution!! This applies in so many areas, gun rights, free speech, etc etc. God gave us a magnificent gift in our constitution, are we brave enough to start standing firm in support of that wise contract between the sovereign states?

May God give courage, common sense, and fear of God to every state legislature and to every Governor (Republican or Democrat) that live in a society of human beings created in the image of God (with a soul, body, and spirit): we do not murder our babies in cold blood. The very act is barbaric as human sacrifice in previous societies who worship idols and offered their children to false gods. Governor Asa Hutchinson is to be applauded. May many more states follow in those courageous footsteps.

This is very encouraging news….
Hopefully this will go into effect and that other states will also pursue this very important step for LIFE!

Father God,
May all praise and honor be given unto You the giver of life!
Thank you for the elected officials of Arkansas that had the courage and the tenacity to pursue with Your help this bill, protecting the life of the unborn.
Forgive us O Lord for our “worldly” flaws. Revive within us ALL the importance to see and view life as a gift from You!
In Jesus Name, Amen!

In 1966 I went through Dachau, the death camp in Munich. From that moment I have hated abortion with all my being. Whether Jew or unborn, all in HIS image. Pray for Northam, governor of Virginia too, talks to mother of a baby that is born in spite of attempt to abort by him. My sincere hope and prayer is that the election was fraudulent, so many godly folks in that state. Father, please see that we YOUR children hate this with all our hearts and have not relinquished our hate for abortion and WE the People will triumph through YOU. Please heal our land

Truly an event worthy of praise. This is the most encouraging piece of news I have heard in a very long time. The debate needs to remain alive until it is won and the right to life is protected forevermore.

Lord, please continue working on and in the hearts of Americans to respect life, especially of those least able to protect themselves. In the name of Jesus.

This is such wonderful news! Praise the Lord! We all need to pray that all the other states in the US, including California, will follow suit. I know that California is the most liberal state in the country, but there are conservative Christian areas of this state, too, including the San Joaquin Valley where I live. Right now, we are very close to recalling our governor, Gavin Newsom, and I just pray to God that we can replace him with a conservative Christian. From what I understand, John Cox is up for the job. I will be voting for him. It’s high time for California to change it’s far-Left liberal ways and come over to the conservative side. With God, all things are possible.

      Thanks so much for your prayers for the state of California. This state is really getting a bad rap right now, and I look forward to the day when things change for the better. I too, hope and pray that this is the beginning of better things to come for California. Gavin Newsom is an evil man, and he has got to go! Hopefully, we can vote out other liberal Democrats in California like Dianne Fienstein, Nancy Pelosi, and other California liberals in office. They are no better than Gavin Newsom, and it’s time for them to go, as well.

Abortion is an affront to the Author of life. It is a scourge on our nation therefore, I implore the God of heaven to bring righteousness and morality back to our nation. Use God fearing leaders in government to continue to make laws to preserve life.

“You shall not kill” (Exodus 20:13).

Lord, we value life from conception to natural death. Life is Your gift to us. Thank you for the great state of Arkansas and the great respect they have for the life of the unborn. Please Lord, help Senate Bill 6 to pass banning abortions in the state. And Lord, please encourage other states to follow suit and pass similar laws. Thanks God! Amen!

Praise Jesus! This is wonderful but so far to go on this. Lord Jesus help! What happens when someone brings a claim up against the state and it goes to the Supreme Court? The Supreme Court has proven that they are not to be trusted. Pray for the Supreme Court. For some demonic reason those conservative justices appointed go in conservative and end up siding with the those on the left. Not the other way around. Why is this? It’s proven. Perhaps some say it’s pier pressure or they were never really truly on the “right” side. But I give glory to God and thanks to those in Arkansas defending life. I do not believe it will be the end of this thou. Satan’s favorite tool for power is child sacrifice and he wants all of us involved, whether thru tax payer funded abortions, our food, sodas and vaccines, our medical procedures, teaching our children about it at earlier and earlier lives as acceptable to kill an unborn child, corrupting our children’s morals. You name it. It’s everywhere. Jesus is on the way! I can see no other way out of all of this evil. Be ready!

Finally some body has done the right thing, NO ABORTIONS PERIOD! As for the supreme court, it no longer exists, they are traitors to the american people now. This past election has proven that. President Trump is still president and all 75 million plus should stand up for him!
I hope all of the other states take the same action and tell the so called supreme court to go to hell, along with the demecrates!

    Lord, we thank you and praise you for this decision in Arkansas! We pray for “life” to win in these U.S. of America! We pray more governors would stand for life. We pray mothers and fathers across this great land would choose life over convenience, blessing over curses and choose adoption over abortion. We recognize so many want children who can’t have them. We pray courts would make adoption more affordable and feasible. Use this horrific sin that has been happening for good as only you can and draw manybto saving knowledge of you even through this debate!

Father God thank you for the children who will be saved because of these court decisions. Raise up a new standard in the courts that is pro-life. Shine the light of Your grace over the judges, lawyers, any lawmakers Jesus, and make their thinking wise. Be glorified in this land. I pray for a turning from the things of the world to being on our knees praising God for His faithfulness. You Jesus are so worthy to be praised. Make a way in all of these courtrooms across this nation to save our children. In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus I pray!

Please give them favor among the people so that even their enemies will be at peace with them. In the holy name of Jesus, we pray. Amen
