1. NC VALUES: 🔬 It is time for the law to catch up with the science

Earlier today, I stood in front of the Supreme Court with other pro-lifers as they heard oral arguments for Dobbs v. Jackson, a case that arose from Mississippi’s “Gestational Age Act” passed in 2018. The Act bans abortions after 15 weeks gestational age and contains limited exceptions.

We were very fortunate to file an amicus brief in this important case.

The science that helped craft early abortion laws is 50 years old, and now it’s time to close that gap and look at abortion laws through a new lens, a more accurate lens. Science now shows that unborn babies at 15 weeks have all the features of a living human being, including a heartbeat!

It is time for the law to catch up with the science!

4. ICYMI: The Mama Bear Manual

We're excited to share with you a document we put together called the Mama Bear Manual. This manual will help you identify what is harmful and give you strategies to defeat it.

The issue addressed in this manual is whether parents have the right to educate their children according to their values.

Together, we can make a positive impact for truth for our children.

5. ICYMI: Still not too late to help us out with our earlier #GivingTuesday fundraiser

Since our inception as an organization, defending the unborn has been central to the purpose of our existence. Whether it is championing pro-life legislation like our Human Life Nondiscrimination Act (HB453), or filing amicus briefs for important pro-life cases like Dobbs vs. Jackson, we are doing our part to advance the cause of life. We're even planning to be in D.C. this week to amplify your voice on the steps of the Supreme Court during oral arguments.

Earlier this week was #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity that took place November 30th. It's was a great opportunity to support organizations that are working to protect the lives of the unborn.

If you did not get an opportunity to give, it's still not too late to share your generosity with us. We would be very grateful.

WEEKLY PRAYER: FAMILY

LORD, we cry out to you as Father. You are a model of the love, mercy, and authority of the perfect parent. We thank you for modeling for us what every parent should strive for, and for creating this wonderful institution called family.

LORD, we thank you for creating us with a basic nature designed to not be alone. You made us to desire the intimacy of relationships, and it is here where we experience joys indescribable: the joys of marriage, the joys of having children; the joys of seeing our children have children. What a blessing and mercy you gave us in the family! In it we find our first teachers, our first guardians, and our first authorities.

LORD, we recognize how deeply you love your children, and how deeply it pains you when they go astray. Alongside our adoration and thanksgiving, we pray in confession—as individuals and as members of larger communities—over any sins we may have committed that undermine your beloved institution. Forgive us when we endanger your institution through selfishness and arrogance. Forgive our communities and nation for attempting to redefine some of the most basic and deepest parts of being human—being made male and female, having lifelong marriage vows and responsibilities, and having parental rights over educating one's children.

"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." (Colossians 3:12-17)

Amen
