You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its flavor, with which shall it be salted? It is thereafter good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
While the California ProLife Council is decidedly non-sectarian in our approach to defending the innocent, we welcome the participation of people of faith. As believers, God exhorts us to pray for our leaders, for our country, for forgiveness of sin and for the healing of our land. Prayer moves mountains, changes hearts and alters circumstances. Without it — we can’t win the battle for the unborn!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and PRAY and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”
-2 Chronicles 7:14-15
The State of California leads the nation in the number of abortions performed annually. While we account for a little over 10% of the population, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, 20% of the nation’s abortions occur in California.
This disregard for unborn life has led to disrespect for other vulnerable members of the human family. A 1995 Field Poll revealed that 70% of Californians think incurably ill patients should be allowed to ask for and get a physician’s assistance to kill themselves.
Be the savior of those who are given up to death, and do not keep back help from those who are slipping to destruction.”
