Supreme Court decision prompts concern
As you know, since the Supreme Court leak of a decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade there has been a divide over this nationwide. What you may not know is that there has been violent attacks by pro-abortion terrorists on pro-lifers. The Family Research Council has documented dozens of violent attacks on churches and pro-life groups.
As of 6/22/2022, the report noted 15 violent incidents against churches, 32 incidents against pro-life groups or pregnancy centers, and 16 other incidents of threats or disruptions aimed at pro-lifers. This is sad to see and shows how much the church needs to work to help people who don’t know how to respond. See details at: https://downloads.frc.org/EF/EF22F17.pdf
Pregnancy resource centers, many of which are faith-based, are a vital lifeline to mothers facing an unplanned pregnancy. The church likewise has an important role to fill, not only providing material and emotional support for those considering abortion, but also the vital spiritual support to help those families impacted by abortion to know God and His mercy.
Even if these states like Minnesota refuse to protect the unborn, the church, civil society, and local governments should do whatever they can to protect unborn life. May the current nine justices see through the lie that our society needs abortion and allow American institutions to use the force of law to protect life in the womb. And may Christians be known by what we are for, not what we are against. Let’s be known for standing for physical life and eternal life though Jesus Christ our Lord!

Update as of 6/24/2022 9:30am CST – https://www.foxnews.com/politics/supreme-court-overturns-roe-v-wade-dobbs-v-jackson-womens-health-organization
The Supreme Court on Friday, June 24th 2022 overturned Roe v. Wade, effectively ending recognition of a constitutional right to abortion (murder of a child in the womb) and giving individual states the power to allow, limit, or ban the practice altogether.
Praise the Lord! 🙌 “We give thanks to God that countless unborn children’s lives will be saved.”
Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s opinion, “We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. 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.”
