Roe v. Wade.
Whatever gut reaction, just saying the name drummed up inside of you, I humbly ask that you momentarily suspend all feelings and emotions for the next couple minutes, reading this post.
I’ve had a number of people ask why I haven’t talked about this “unprecedented leak” about the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Being staunchly pro-life, I’ve been known to spit some pretty fiery remarks when it comes to the topic of abortion. But I’ve held off, because honestly, this inferno of backlash seems to be a bit out of control.
Pro-abortion people harassing the Supreme Court Justices by gathering outside their private homes.
Angry people setting fire, breaking into and vandalizing pro-life pregnancy centers across the country.
Calls to invade Catholic Masses this past Sunday on Mother’s Day, causing many churches to have employ armed guards at the door.
People angrily taking to the streets in pro-abortion protests in major cities across the country.
Indignant posts on social media from pro-abortion people, drawing a harsh “us” vs. “them” line in the sand, like this one from actress Minka Kelly, of Friday Night Lights fame.
This all just seems really…dark.
There is evil afoot. And frankly, I don’t want to add any fuel to that raging fire of fury, even if it is in defense of the unborn.
But I do, instead, want to offer a bit of a different form of action.
I’m going to pray.
I’m going to pray for those pro-abortion people, that God may open their eyes to the truth, that they may see the evil of abortion at it’s face: the murder of innocent life — innocent children.
I’m not going to combat the pitiful argument that abortion is healthcare, or that it’s “my body, my choice,” or that “men shouldn’t write laws about women’s bodies” or that it’s about women’s privacy.
Though I would love to remind those arguers that we are, in fact, talking about two lives, here. And that the baby’s body is not the mother’s body….I’m going to instead pray for them. Pray that their hearts of stone be turned to hearts of flesh.
I’m going to pray that they be educated on the horrific procedures of abortion, in every gut wrenching nitty-gritty detail.
I’m going to pray for expectant mothers, scared and contemplating an abortion.
I’m going to pray for expectant fathers, that they stand up for their children, and invoke a voice of truth.
I’m going to pray for the doctors administering abortions, that they see the truth of their actions and come to repent for the ocean of innocent blood they’ve personally shed.
I’m going to pray for the employees at Planned Parenthood, that their hearts be moved with compassion and realization that these “fetuses” are children of God, as they count and reassemble the dismembered limbs, making sure that no rogue body part is left in the post-vacuumed womb.
I’m going to pray for those companies selling aborticant pills, that they see the evil and danger in administering a pill that causes a mother to have a miscarriage alone in the house into the toilet, which has resulted in over 4,000 serious effects for the mother, including 24 deaths.
I’m going to pray for those mothers who have had abortions, and are grieving, after coming to the grave realizations of their “choice.”
I’m going to pray for the 125,000 children who are aborted every single day, and pray that they be comforted in Heaven in the arms of Jesus, their loving Savior.
I’m going to take the sadness in my heart, that there are so many people who are up in arms fighting FOR the ability to murder children, and I’m going to turn that deep devastation into devotion to the Divine Mercy of Jesus.
May His mercy flood this land, and wash over the hearts of all, revealing His truth that we are created and loved by God, that every hair on our head was known and numbered in the womb.
And I’m going to take the soul disappointment I have in humanity, and turn it into action: going to Planned Parenthood, and silently praying outside: standing vigil as they perform abortions on Saturday afternoons, and praying for those innocent lives as they transcend into Heaven.
In order to pray for compassion in the hearts of pro-choice people, I must first act with compassion towards them, myself.
Anger and fury gets us nowhere.
I will not contribute to the toxicity afoot in this country. The enemy is having a field day with it, and I want no part, adding fuel to their fire.
I would like you to join me in praying for the change of hearts, the realization of truth, the birth of compassion, and the end to abortion as we know it.
Come, Lord Jesus, hear our prayers.
