The Washington Post published a lengthy article on how Nebraska’s law prohibiting almost all abortions after 20 weeks is based on the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the federal ban on partial-birth abortion.

PRAYER FOR LIFE
Lord God, thank You for creating human life in Your image.
Thank You for my life and the lives of those I love.
Thank You for teaching us through Scripture the value You place on life.
Help me to uphold the sanctity of life in my church and community.
Give me the strength to stand up to those forces
that seek to destroy the lives of those most vulnerable,
the unborn, the infirm and the elderly.
Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of respecting life.
I commit myself to protecting and defending the sacredness of life
according to Your will, through Christ our Lord. Amen.Anglicans for Life405 Frederick AvenueSewickley, PA 15143
