You most likely heard about the U.S. Supreme Court decision recently to reverse part of a pro-life Texas law that protects women’s health. The law protected women’s health and welfare by requiring abortion clinics to meet the kinds of medical and safety standards that legitimate medical centers meet.
This is the Supreme Court’s biggest ruling on abortion since upholding the federal ban on partial-birth abortions in the Gonzalez decision.
One Step Forward…
Two Steps Back?
You, like all of us who value the sacredness of human life, must be filled with a sense of disappointment and disgust after the Supreme Court’s ruling. Just when we think the laws of our land are getting closer to protecting life, especially life in the womb.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
In light of yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision, WELS Lutherans for Life continues to seek to save lives not by changing laws, but by changing hearts. I’m grateful to have you as a supporter of our life-saving efforts here in Greater Milwaukee.
At WLFL we are seeing the fruits of God’s blessings. Our pregnancy care center is continuing to serve women where they are, helping them understand the value of life in the womb. And we are still proceeding to become a medical clinic to provide ultrasound services.
We trust that God is in control of all things knowing he cares for those who love him. We take comfort in his providence as described in the next verses of Psalm 146.
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them--
he remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
I’m grateful to have you as a supporter of our life-saving efforts. Thanks for being with me in this fight for Life!
For Life in Christ,
