    The battle against abortion is both political and spiritual. We need to change laws so that unborn babies are protected, but we also need to pray for all who are involved in this activity. We must pray that women who are considering abortion will receive the help they need to give birth to their child and support him after he is born. We must pray that those who are involved in the business of providing abortions will recognize repent of their sin. We must pray that all children will be allowed to be born.

    Ending abortion is only the first step. Jesus said that unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. We must pray that those babies whose lives are saved by our efforts will go on to experience the second birth.

    Do you not mean that we should be praying for all the people who cause this problem in the first place because they cannot control their actions.

    That is to say, Fix the initiating cause for the problem and the problem will go away.

    Marie, I am sorry for your circumstances 27 years or so ago that led to your decision. May you be able to forgive yourself as I am in no position to judge what you did all those years ago and know that God only looks at our hearts and our responses to Him now, not our hearts or responses to Him 27 years ago. Yes there are consequences for our previous decisions and actions which we must live with, but that does not stop God from loving us. We all have regrets for our past actions, but God is more interested in loving us for who we are now and how we are responding to Him within our present circumstances.

    May you continue to grown deeper in your relationship with God as He continues to draw you into His loving embrace.

    Yes, we might be able to abolish abortion but the need for a second birth will still remain.

    The Supreme Court is reopening the Roe vs. Wade decision and may overturn it....we can only pray they do. It was the decision made in that case back then that opened the door for legalized abortion in the U.S.....and that was on a Federal level....state governments one by one changed their laws to legalize abortion....my state was one of the last to do this....smh.
