"It's a Freak Show" at the Supreme Court! Prayer Needed!

"It's a Freak Show" at the Supreme Court! Prayer Needed!

Also, an important House hearing on Bioethics Fetal Tissue is in progress!
March 2, 2016
Dear Friends of Life,
Today is a momentous day for those of us who oppose the evil destruction of innocent human life through abortion, and we are asking you to pray with us today for God's favor for two very important events that could have an impact on abortion in this country.
Right now, Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, is on the ground in Washington, D.C. at the Supreme Court amid a throng of about 1,000 angry pro-aborts waiving crazy signs that show their selfish hatred for the lives of others. These people oppose abortion safety and desire that abortion be unrestricted, unregulated, and unaccountable - just like the days of the so-called back alley!
Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstadt
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments today in Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstadt. This is the most important case heard by the nation's highest court in 25 years! It is a challenge to a 2013 Texas abortion licensing and safety law known as HB2 that, among other provisions, requires abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of their abortion facilities. This requirement has already shut down half of Texas' 42 abortion clinics that operated prior to the passage of the law.
Operation Rescue published a report just yesterday of a medical emergency at a Dallas, Texas abortion facility that required the patient to be transported by ambulance to a local emergency room. This incident is a case in point for the need for abortion safety and for the Court uphold HB2.
Two friend of the court briefs have been filed that have relied heavily on Operation Rescue's research and work. Read the Liberty Counsel brief filed on behalf of Operation Rescue and the brief filed by the American Center for Law and Justice, which heavily cites our work.
A favorable decision could have a wide-reaching impact on our nation that could lead to the closure of more abortion facilities, and as Troy Newman is fond of saying, "When abortion clinics lose, lives are saved."
House Hearing on Bioethics and Fetal Tissue
The second important event that requires our prayer is the first hearing of the House Select Panel on Infant Lives that will take place at 10:00 a.m. This hearing and panel investigation was prompted by undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that revealed Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal trafficking of fetal remains for profit.
That hearing will be live-streamed at this link, where you can also access the witness list and their written statements.
We pray that God will be merciful and cause the SCOTUS case and House Select Panel investigation to dramatically reduce or even eliminate the Abortion Cartel's capacity to wage war on the pre-born and their mothers.
For the voiceless,
Cheryl Sullenger
Senior Vice President
Operation Rescue
