Ominous signs of the pending Supreme Court decision on the Dobbs’ Mississippi abortion case are everywhere.
Earlier today, a man was arrested in Maryland near the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He was carrying a gun and proclaimed his desire/intent to kill the jurist.
I was in Washington, D.C., a few weeks ago, and increased police presence, along with eight-foot metal fencing around the High Court, make clear that officials are bracing for the potential of a violent reaction to the decision.
But on a much happier and upbeat note, placards and banners are rising here on the Focus on the Family campus just ahead of See Life ’22 – our annual celebration of life scheduled for this coming Tuesday, June 14th at 7 P.M. Mountain time.
This year’s festivities will feature a keynote address from The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, along with a special video interview with pro-life stalwart Candace Owens. I’ll be interviewing the Honorable Daniel Lipinski, former Congressman from Illinois. We’ll be joined that evening by March for Life president Jeanne Mancini. Phil Wickham will be providing inspirational music.
The leaked opinion and subsequent media reports regarding the Dobbs’ case suggest we’re on the verge of a watershed moment for the sanctity of life. A reversal of Roe would throw the issue back to the states, opening up a whole new chapter in our quest to preserve and protect every innocent life.
As we wait for the decision, the very best thing we can do is pray for a favorable outcome – and for justice, mercy and peace. The nine justices are under extreme pressure – and, it seems, vulnerable to violent extremists who want to thwart and upend the judicial process.
Another thing you can do is join us on June 14th for the live simulcast of this special event. It promises to be educational, inspirational and encouraging. It’s time for us to seize this pro-life moment – and we’d be honored if you joined us. Please click here to register. There is no cost. And thank you for praying for our team and for the event!
