Arkansas Baptist State Convention Offers Pro-Life Church Bulletins for Sunday

The Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) is offering free, pro-life church bulletin inserts for Sunday, January 23, 2022.

The bulletin inserts are one way for churches to observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday this Sunday.

The ABSC writes, “This day is an opportunity to speak the truth in love about abortion, and an opportunity to stir in someone’s heart the need to make a difference in the life of a woman and her expected child.”

January 22 is the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade abortion decision.

Last year the Arkansas Legislature passed H.C.R. 1007 marking January 22 as the Day of Tears in Arkansas.

H.C.R. 1007 also acknowledges the 61 million unborn babies killed in abortion in America over the past five decades, and it encourages Arkansans to lower their flags to half-staff on January 22 to mourn the innocent children who have lost their lives to abortion.

Alabama and Louisiana passed similar measures in 2021 as well.

This weekend is an excellent opportunity for pro-lifers in Arkansas to engage the issue of abortion and promote the sanctity of human life in our state.

ACLU, Planned Parenthood Continuing to Fight Texas’ Heartbeat Law in Federal Court

On Monday the ACLU announced it is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to expedite its challenge against Texas’ pro-life heartbeat law at the district court level.

Expediting the challenge would let the ACLU continue fighting the law in lower federal court.

Texas’ heartbeat law generally prohibits abortion after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected, and it has effectively prevented abortion in Texas since September.

The ACLU and Planned Parenthood have fought Texas’ pro-life law in federal court, but in December the U.S. Supreme Court decided to let the Texas heartbeat law remain in effect while leaving the door open for other possible challenges against it.

On Monday the ACLU issued a statement, saying, “We have brought our challenge to SB8 back to the Supreme Court. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is defying the Supreme Court’s opinion by refusing to send our case back to the district court, delaying our challenge against Texas’ extreme ban.”

On Monday the ACLU also issued a blatantly pro-abortion statement on social media, saying, “Abortion is health care. Forced pregnancy laws take away our rights and freedom.”

Pro-abortion groups used to say that abortion ought to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Lately, however, groups like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood have dropped the word “rare” from their talking points.

The reality is most Americans do not see pro-life laws as “forced pregnancy laws” the way the ACLU seems to.

Gallup released a poll in June of 2019 showing 60% of Americans believe abortion should be either illegal or legal only under a few circumstances, and public opinion polling consistently shows Arkansans are overwhelmingly pro-life.

Americans oppose abortion on demand, and a striking number agree that abortion ought to be completely illegal. That’s part of the reason why slowly but surely we are winning the fight to end abortion.
