The pro-life prayers begin as Supreme Court takes case:
Pro-life forces are on high alert now that the Supreme Court is reviewing Mississippi’s law that limits abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy — which could lead the justices to reconsider abortion as a constitutional right.
The Susan B. Anthony List — a 900,000-member pro-life grassroots network — has already organized a wide-ranging prayer campaign which it hopes will upend the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and “save lives,” the organization said.
The outreach is described as “a national prayer initiative for life” and includes a weekly national guided prayer via a conference call, plus a free, daily devotional guide titled “31 Days of Prayer for Life.” There is also an advisory on the complex legal issues at hand.
“We would love for you to join us for this vital piece of the fight we’re entrenched in, to pray that the sanctity of life be restored at the center of our nation until a decision comes down. Feel free to share this invite with colleagues, friends, and family who you think would be interested as well,” the organization says in its public outreach. Find the details at --->READ MORE HERE

Supreme Court to weigh in on Mississippi challenge to Roe v. Wade on Dec. 1:
The Supreme Court announced Monday it will hear arguments in a lawsuit against Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban on Dec. 1.
The legal battle, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, will test the high court‘s roughly 50-year precedent affirming a right to an abortion up until viability that was set in the 1973 landmark ruling Roe v. Wade.
It’s potentially the year’s most highly watched case — especially after the justices declined to block a Texas law this month that bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around six weeks of pregnancy.
Mississippi officials argue that Roe v. Wade should be overturned because it’s outdated. The state contends the viability standard set out in Roe is unclear, and the state has an interest in banning abortions after 15 weeks to protect women’s health and that of unborn children.
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch said the state looks forward to presenting its case in December. --->READ MORE HERE
