God’s word and science agree; human life begins in the womb. For 49 years, the flawed ruling of Roe v. Wade has denied preborn babies the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

Far too much innocent young blood has been shed in America and worldwide. It is far past the time to right the civil wrong of abortion. Today it is time to unite and “SPEAK FOR LIFE.”

As one nation, we must pray, both corporately and individually. As we seek God’s forgiveness and repent for our sins, let’s pray and work together for life and human dignity from the womb to the tomb, regardless of ethnicity or other socio-economic conditions.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

For decades we have been fighting to see the egregious Roe v. Wade ruling overturned and see the precious unborn babies protected in the womb. As we pray and march together today and in the days ahead, let us keep faith, hope, and love in unity for life.

We have the Texas Heartbeat Bill and the Dobbs decision just ahead of us. Let us pray, work, and speak for life and human dignity, from the womb to the tomb.

There must be a better way to protect the human race. How can the dream survive if we murder our children?

Now let us join together and declare that 2022 will mark the post-Roe generation, a generation where no baby is threatened in the womb and where the law finally recognizes the human dignity of our most precious and delicate lives — the unborn.

“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." ~Amos‬ ‭5:24‬ ‭ESV
