Thanks be to God! The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade!
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives."
Thank you for your tireless advocacy, fasting, and prayers for life! Over the years many people have stayed on the sidelines and out of the conversation about abortion. We pray this monumental decision will awaken hearts and minds to our educational outreach and the availability of resources for women and families at the local level.
As we shared with you last week, the Iowa Supreme Court corrected their 2018 decision and recognized there is no fundamental right to abortion in the state constitution. While we rejoice in this decision, we also recognize the need to continue to advocate for passage of the Protect Life Amendment to guard against future judges who want to rewrite the people's constitution and override the voice of Iowans.
We cannot establish a just society until every person receives protection under law, from conception to natural death. We pray for our country and our state, that the preborn would be protected, that women and men who have experienced abortion will find forgiveness and healing, and that those struggling with difficult pregnancies will find help and hope.
"If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
