I Prayed have prayed

Our elected officials have a direct impact on how many abortions are performed in this country and who gets them—read this and pray for pro-life candidates to be elected who will expose the horrors of the abortion industry in America. Click to download our new Intercessory Intel Report on Life.

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! (Is 49:15)

[B]uried in a federal court opinion was a startling revelation: the Obama administration Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) transported minor illegal aliens to New Mexico for abortions to avoid state parental notification laws. Further digging in documents filed in the case, but not mentioned in the court opinion, reveal an even more extreme abortion-on-demand mindset of those charged with caring for the girls.

Transporting Minors

First, several email threads confirm last week’s reporting that under the Obama administration, girls were transported or transferred to other states to avoid parental notification laws. For instance, one email referenced the “need” to drive a minor to San Antonio from another Texas-based shelter. In this email, the ORR representative added, “we had driven minors from El Paso to Albuquerque NM which is bigger distance from your program to San Antonio [in] order to get this procedure done.”

Texas law requires minors to obtain parental consent or a judicial bypass to obtain an abortion, while New Mexico does not. Another email confirmed “this is why termination of pregnancies are done in New Mexico.” (This email also indicated the ORR representative had a cozy relationship with a Texas family court judge potentially involved in bypassing the state’s parental consent requirement.)…

Late-Term Abortions? Yep

The ORR under Obama did not merely transport or transfer girls to avoid parental consent. It also appears, from the email correspondence, that pregnant minors, called unaccompanied alien children or UAC, were transferred to other states to obtain late-term abortions….

Obtaining Federal Funding?

The email exchanges between Obama administration ORR employees also raise a serious question of whether the field specialists approved reimbursement for abortions or the travel costs related to the abortions. For instance, in one discussion concerning arranging for a minor to obtain an abortion, an ORR representative reminded everyone “that ORR programs can only pay for the termination of a pregnancy if it is a result of rape.”

But other email threads raised the possibility that the ORR employees were gaming the “rape” and “incest” exceptions to authorize taxpayer payments for the abortions. For instance, one exchange noted that a 17-year old had consensual sex with a 28-year-old man, but then later said she had sex with the man for money she used to travel to the United States. Notwithstanding the consensual nature of the sex, the email ended with a request for guidance because the “incident may not meet the criteria of rape.”…

Whether the ORR improperly used federal funds to pay for abortions, or travel expenses related to abortions, is unclear. But these emails suggest that possibility and a further investigation into the ORR officials involved is warranted.

While little else can be done at this point, these emails are nonetheless significant because they expose the extreme views of those leading the ORR program under the Obama administration—so extreme that they wanted girls to have access to late-term abortions, without any parental involvement, and with federal funding if at all possible. These facts deserve to be known. (Excerpts from Margot Cleveland article in The Federalist)

Lord God, we want to lift up to you ACLJ and their cases against Planned Parenthood that are now before the Supreme Court. Lord, i ask that all the prayers ever prayed for the unborn in this nation come before your throne again. I ask that you give ACLJ the monies they require for this fight, and that PP is brought to justice for not only selling baby parts, but inciting their murder in the first place. Lord God, please rid our land of this plague of conscience, in Jesus name, Amen

Satan is behind each drop of innocent blood spilt in this country through abortion. He is the father of lies and all treachery. Lord God, wake up your church to vote, cause them to know they will give an account of not voting and or voting for those who are indifferent to the plight of the unborn or are for abortion, that you Lord will hold them to give an account of this great sin of omission or commission. May Your children rise up to occupy till Your return, dear Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.

I am just read this. I feel shocked, disgusted, and angry. I want to hate the people involved but I cannot. Prayer for those in the Obama administration and those in the field who arranged this. Prayer for the young women who mourn for their babies. Dear Lord Jesus, Have mercy on us.
