Four Weeks Until Nov. 8

Posted by thelamp on October 15, 2006

Advocates for life are eager to have their day in court, and it’s just a few weeks away. On Nov. 8, the nine justices of the highest court in the nation will hear oral arguments in two cases involving partial-birth abortion. Sign the CMC petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The facts about partial birth abortion are gruesome. The baby is delivered feet first, all but the head. Then the doctor kills the child – in a horribly painful fashion. The majority of Americans find the procedure repugnant.

That’s why Congress outlawed it in 2003; and why President Bush signed the partial-birth abortion ban into law. Planned Parenthood and others have challenged this legislation all the way to the top of the judicial system. Now the nation’s high court must make a life-or-death decision.

Members of the Center for Moral Clarity have been active, vocal warriors in the battle for life. CMC even filed a legal brief with the Supreme Court explaining why justices should uphold the ban. The struggle is not over yet. Pastor Rod Parsley, CMC’s founder and president, implores Bible-believers to pray for each member of the court. Pray that he or she will interpret the law and not legislate from the bench. Pray that they will do the right thing.

Although citizens cannot demand the court’s cooperation, we can encourage them to rule in favor of life. Please sign the CMC petition, which respectfully requests the court to do what is right to save lives.
