I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray that more young people would be exposed to the science that proves life is life!

Haley Lubek, 24 weeks into her pregnancy, lay on a wooden folding cot inside the student center at Skutt Catholic High School in Omaha.

A dozen students sat in the room with her and watched as ultrasound technician Angela Himmelberg passed the machine’s probe over Lubek’s gently bulging tummy.

Himmelberg narrated as a live video image projected on a wall.

“Can you see the eyes?” Himmelberg asked the students.

“Here’s an arm right here … there’s a foot digging into the placenta.”

Live ultrasounds like this one have emerged as a tool for abortion opponents in Nebraska.

Instead of showing gory pictures of aborted fetuses to dissuade women from abortions, the volunteers at Heart of a Child Ministries are trying to win over hearts by literally showing a tiny beating heart.

The volunteers have been giving their presentations at metro-area Catholic and private schools. But they say they’ve also taken it on the road, to several surrounding states as well as California.

Ultrasound technology entered into the national abortion debate in a big way last year.

In May 2019, Focus on the Family arranged for the broadcast of a live ultrasound on giant TV screens in Times Square. An estimated 20,000 people gathered to watch the event dubbed “Alive from New York.”

The woman who underwent the televised ultrasound was former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson, now an abortion opponent, who was 36 weeks pregnant. Johnson has said she parted ways with Planned Parenthood after witnessing an ultrasound-assisted abortion in 2009.

Father God,
I pray that live ultrasounds will be performed in biology classrooms in schools across our nation, both public and private. What a marvelous opportunity for students to see the life within the womb!
I ask for this to become standard practice in Jesus name who is the Life. Amen.

Dear Lord, please let your Holy Spirit fill the earth with Your truth and conviction. Thank You for people like Abby Johnson who is an example of what Your Spirit can do to change and use us. But let us be prepared to face the onslaught from those who do not want the truth known. They will continue to fight back using legislation and liberal judges. They are the ones calling good evil and evil good. Thank You for all the people fighting on the front lines. We will let them know we are always praying for them, and will support them any way we can. Amen
