Way to go, Texas! Whether you cheer for Texas in sports or not, there is reason to commend a ruling last month by the Texas Supreme Court. There was a challenge to the state’s prohibition on the abortion of a pre-born child with a detectable heartbeat. The Texas Supreme Court ruled with a unanimous vote that only private citizens rather than state medical licensing officials may enforce the Texas Heartbeat Act. This ruling ends a challenge to the ban by abortion rights advocates and clinics.
I am pro-life, because God is pro-life. Life and hope are gifts from God, and as Creator He is sovereign. Thankfully He’s also compassionate, merciful, and forgiving. I never want to vote in opposition to Him! I’m not close to perfect, but I strive to follow His teachings in His Holy Book, the Bible.
Jesus loved little children during Bible times, and He still does today. It is up to us to protect them before, during, and after birth. May there be more legislators and voters to take our role regarding life and hope seriously. Cheers for Texas!
From the Bible we learn God’s view on life: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3: 16) Our lives are so valuable to Him that He freely gave His Son — the perfect Sacrifice — for us. May we accept His free Gift!
