I have a confession to make. Because my wife made me, I have seen the movie Frozen. Please don’t think less of me.
The cartoon ice epic features a number of catchy tunes, and, outside of “Let it Go,” I don’t think there’s one that can get stuck in your head quicker than the enthusiastic “For the First Time in Forever.”
Yet, it’s that refrain that seems so fitting for the pro-life movement now. For the First Time in Forever… we are making significant gains. For the First Time in Forever… we have the Left on the defensive. For the First Time in Forever… we can truly imagine a day when the legalized taking of innocent human life will be no more.
More than any time since, well… forever, the pro-life movement has real momentum. Consider:
- States like Georgia, Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, and Mississippi have all signed sweeping pro-life legislation into law in the last couple of months with more on the way.
- Polling shows a groundswell of support for such legislation, with a majority saying they support legislation that protects unborn children with beating hearts.
- The life issue is once again at the forefront of the political dialogue, with pro-life candidates fully embracing their position and willing to highlight the extremism of the Left.
But, this momentum could not be more tenuous. The life issue will very much be on the ballot in 2020 here in Georgia and across the country. In Georgia, our legislature hangs in the balance. Nationally, the Supreme Court is at stake. In the battle for our culture, we still have much work to do as we seek to combat the liberal media and radical Hollywood voices.
That’s why it’s so imperative that we do not rest on the excitement of these recent gains. We must continue to put this before the Lord.
I’m asking that you join me in praying for our Governor, Lt. Governor, and leaders like Rep. Ed Setzler who have shown great courage and fortitude. Pray for HB 481, that this legislation leads to thousands of lives being saved. Lift up the 2020 elections and our efforts to protect those who voted for LIFE and unseat those who took the radical position that unborn children with beating hearts are NOT worth protecting. And, seek the Lord’s favor for this movement for a nation where life is cherished.
The fight is not over. We must continue to engage. With our pocketbooks. By pounding pavement for the pro-life candidates. And, on our knees in prayer.
President and Executive Director
