Life is Sacred.

(Go to Bound4LIFE.com)

January 22nd marks the 37th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe vs. Wade.  In the New York Times, President Obama has praised the ruling, saying it was a symbol of the broader principle that government should not intrude upon private family matters.  As if life and death is in the power of mere humans; as if we decide who is sacred enough to be allowed breath; as if we are God! And as if government funded abortion initiatives are not vulger intrusions.

The number of  cumulative deaths from all the US wars is 1.19 million.     Since this ruling in 1973, 50 million children have been killed in the womb and millions of women are wounded for life.  I know some of these women, you know some of these women, you are some of these women.   We are appalled at the oppression of women world-wide, yet here on US soil our worldview is just as warped. As I wrote earlier, I am convinced we cannot deal with the oppression of women globally until we deal with our own.    

In spite of all the studies and testimonies that give proof that abortion not only kills, but is anything but beneficial for women, it continues at alarming rates.  But we will not turn our faces; we will look at it and see it for what it is. While the construction of the abortion super center being built by Planned Parenthood of Houston takes place, so are weekly prayer vigils happening right alongside of what will be the second largest abortion facility in the world.

With the largest in China, this US-based late-term (up to 6 months) abortion clinic will be the largest not only in the United States, but also in the Western Hemisphere.

This Planned Parenthood expansion is receiving nationwide attention. As this late-term abortion clinic nears completion, people all
over the country are standing up to notice what is being built in our backyard. A coalition of pro-life advocates and religious leaders
are holding a prayerful march and silent siege in Houston on January 18th, around 9 a.m. on MLK day and participants will silently march towards the almost completed monstrosity.
Visit Bound4Life, TexasFamilies, TheCall and the Road to Houston for information on many of the issues concerning this facility, such as the specific location of the clinic and the questionable intentions of Planned Parenthood. The outrage over this late-term abortion clinic is not simply about being anti-abortion, but also focuses on Planned Parenthood’s business practices, what they stand to gain financially from the unprecedented growth in abortion rates this new clinic will bring to Houston, as well as the poor women being targeted.
For more detailed information on the Silent Prayer March, visit organizer, TheCall for times, locations and details. Also included is information for the Prayer Rally on Sunday, January 17th at 6 p.m. at Grace Community Church – South Campus.
If you are in the area (I am not, but wish I could be there–I urge you to do a silent prayer walk with your own families around the Planned Parenthood in your own city), join the thousands of others as they stand before this monstrosity and intercede for the communities at risk, the women in crisis and the lives of the unborn.
