The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has taken up the cause of a 17-year-old, pregnant, illegal immigrant being held in a detention facility in Texas. The girl wants an abortion. The ACLU is arguing that it is the responsibility of the federal government to make that happen for her and must transport her from the detention facility to an abortion clinic. The Trump administration position is that the federal government is not compelled to do so. As an illegal alien, she has no right to abortion in the United States, just as she has no legal right to reside here.
The misuse of the legal system to promote abortion, even for non-citizens, is why we must pray for true constitutional principles in our nation. Download a free prayer guide to uphold the Constitution here.
It amazes me that with papers and words in courts, the one who seeks to steal, kill and destroy is stoking a battle that may end the life of an innocent child, manipulate an entire country's legal system and stir up even more dissension in our nation. Societies that do not protect the vulnerable and uphold what is true become barbaric and eventually die themselves.
Our legal system is crucial to determining the outcome of the overall conflict going on in our nation. We must pray for judicial appointments of men and women who rule in the fear of God. At this moment President Trump has 150 vacancies (out of 890 total) to address, with 51 nominees pending before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Filling these positions with judges who have a proven track record upholding our Constitution, as our founders intended it to be upheld, is critical for our nation.
Organizations like the ACLU are funded by individuals intent upon seeing biblical principles eradicated from our nation. Over the last five years, the ACLU has received over $100 million from the George Soros-funded Open Society Foundation (OSF). Recently, Soros "invested" an additional $18 billion into OSF, effectively doubling the amount of assets in this global Trojan horse. The prominence and power of this organization is evident in its location—directly across the street from the White House. Further, OSF is in the process of transitioning their global president to a new president, Patrick Gaspard, a top adviser to the Democratic Party and a former adviser to President Obama.
Soros is a dangerous man with dangerous ideas. A petition has asked the White House to label George Soros as a terrorist. Click hear to learn more.
We need to pray:
- Pray that life is protected: "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter" (Prov. 24:11, NIV).
- Pray for godly judicial appointments: "Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy; for You will judge the peoples uprightly, and lead the nations on earth. Selah" (Ps. 67:4).
- Pray that the billions of dollars in assets set aside to counter Judeo-Christian values would be used for the good: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many lives" (Gen. 50:20.
