For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in His holy habitation.
Praise God that fifty years of the Federal Civil Magistrate's endorsement and protection of abortion is over! Praise the Lord that within the next thirty days, abortion will no longer be allowed in Tennessee after six weeks of pregnancy. The life of every human being begins at conception. And because everyone is created in God's image, we all have dignity and worth. Therefore, killing children in the womb has always been unconstitutional and, more importantly, a clear violation of God's Law. In the days ahead, I will write more about the SCOTUS decision, how we may pray, how we may help mothers in need, how we may call our neighbors to live as God commands, and how we may share the gracious gospel of Jesus Christ. Until then, dear saints, rejoice that justice is going forth for the most vulnerable of our neighbors, the unborn! Pray in thanksgiving for God's mercy. Pray for peace. Pray for the repentance and salvation of our neighbors who are protesting that babies can no longer be so easily murdered. Soli Deo Gloria!

The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S. 113, and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U. S. 833, are overruled; the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.
