The following comes from a Dec. 18 story on LifeSiteNews.
For many months Bound4LIFE, particularly the local chapter here in St. Louis, has been tracking two court cases related to saving lives lost to abortion. The two cases – Edwards v. Beck in Arkansas along with MKB Management Corp. v. Stenehjem in North Dakota – were filed to block recent state laws which ban abortions based on when a baby’s heartbeat is detected.
On January 13, 2015, these two cases will be heard before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. Some legal experts have labeled these as the most significant cases on abortion since Roe v. Wade itself.
Both Arkansas and North Dakota’s state legislatures have passed laws defining life as when a baby’s heartbeat can be detected. Now the appeals court will consider if the laws, passed by majority vote, are considered constitutional.
More than once in St. Louis history, our city has tried to avoid the difficult battles. In 1820, while trying to maintain a “balance,” the Missouri Compromise was minted. At a Jordan River moment in our nation’s history, we looked and refused to cross towards seeking justice for those who had none.
After wandering a while longer, we are presented once again in our region with an opportunity to stand for justice. On January 13, Bound4LIFE St. Louis invites all believers in the area to join together for a time of united prayer outside the Eighth Circuit Court building.
