I have some good news to share with you. Recently I asked all of our supporters to pray, and if possible for those in the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana area, to travel to Mason, Ohio—about 45 miles from our Creation Museum—to be present and perhaps speak at a city council meeting. This meeting was to determine by vote if Mason was to become a Sanctuary City and criminalize abortion (the murder of children in their mother’s wombs) within city limits. And I have good news to share!
Praise the Lord, the council voted 4–3 in favor of the Sanctuary City motion, and no abortion clinics are allowed to be built in Mason.
According to reports from attendees at the meeting who serve here at AiG, the pro-abortion (really, “pro-death”) protesters made quite a disturbance at the event, attempting to sway the council to vote in favor of the death of unborn children. But, praise the Lord, the council voted 4–3 in favor of the Sanctuary City motion, and no abortion clinics are allowed to be built in Mason. Such measures need to be taken across the entire nation!
I know Christians and other pro-life activists in Mason are thankful for all those who prayed and who came to the city to support life and make a statement to the entire nation about the value of unborn life. If you’d like to know more about standing for life, or you want to be actively involved in teaching others about the value of life, I have a few resources to share with you:
Life is indeed precious—from the moment of fertilization until natural death. I urge you, as a follower of Christ, to be equipped to stand for the defenseless, each of whom is an image-bearer of God (Genesis 1:27), fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
Open your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8–9)
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
