The day I was introduced to a little boy saved by the Heartbeat Bill.
Forty eight years ago in 1973, the historic Roe v. Wade decision was made by the United States Supreme Court. For the first time in the history of the United States the Supreme Court Justices decided that little unborn babies could be killed in a mother's womb without consequence.
In 2013 I sponsored the Arkansas Heartbeat Protection Act which became the very first Heartbeat Bill to be passed into law in our nation since Roe v. Wade was decided. It was hailed as the strongest prolife bill to be passed into law in our nation since 1973 at the time of passage.
Recently Americans United For Life came to Arkansas for a press conference and ceremony celebrating the announcement of Arkansas being named the most prolife state in America in 2021. The first time Arkansas took this #1 position in this important prolife ranking of the various states.
I was asked to sit down with the president of AUL to tell the story about being introduced to "Duncan" - a little boy I was introduced to a few years ago. His adopted mother shared with me that "Duncan" was saved because of the Heartbeat Bill we passed in Arkansas. Please enjoy this brief interview on the AUL Life, Liberty & Law podcast and share with your friends:
We had been praying for a baby—unable to have children for years, when Duncan was suddenly put in our lives," a young mother shared with Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert. Catherine Glenn Foster, President & CEO of Americans United for Life, shares the testimony of State Senator Rapert and an incredible life-affirming experience with a young mother and her son. Arkansas's culture of life is a witness to America on what sort of future is possible and how we can build that better future, together."
The Bible is very clear - God actually hates those who shed innocent blood. It is important that governments and societies protect ALL LIFE, especially the lives of the most vulnerable which surely included innocent unborn children.
Proverbs Chapter 6 16 There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
I urge all Christians to remember that one of the most horrible crimes against humanity continues in the United States where over 60,000,000 innocent babies have been killed through abortion. We must strive to be defenders of Life and ensure our churches remember to be a voice for the voiceless.
