Oral arguments for the landmark case Whole Women’s Health vs Hellerstedt will be heard before the United States Supreme Court on March 2nd. This case could negate all or parts of Texas House Bill 2 (HB 2) which states that abortion facilities be equivalent to the minimum standards for surgery centers; that abortion doctors have local hospital admitting privileges to ensure continuity of care, as recommended by the National Abortion Federation.
This case will set an important precedent for other states in making laws which protect the health of women.
Much is at stake.
PACN believes that every women should receive best-practice healthcare and supports the common sense measures of HB 2. PACN also believes that our most effective tool of influence is joining a community of Christ-followers through prayer.
Now is the time to join together and pray as never before.
- Would you lift up our nation’s Supreme Court Justices to rule with Godly wisdom?
- Would you be faithful in asking God for our nation to see the truth about abortion and ask for His healing power over the women and men who struggle from its effects?
- Would you pray that HB 2 stands and that other states will follow after Texas in offering women best-practice healthcare?
PACN has also asked area church leaders to hold a special time of prayer on either Wednesday, February 24 or Sunday, February 28. We believe in the power of prayer and in the unity of God’s church lifting up this need before Him.
Will you join with us and #stand4life?
“If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
