There are roughly two thousand infants murdered by surgical abortion procedures each year in Nebraska at one of the state’s three abortion clinics. The number of children murdered by chemical warfare via abortifacient drugs is unknown. The governor of Nebraska, Pete Ricketts, just called for a statewide day of prayer to end the atrocious practice.
Ricketts declared January 22 to be the day of prayer and informed the public that Nebraska is a “pro-life state.” The declaration has leftists and pro-murder activists hopping mad.
“Since Roe v. Wade, over 50 million unborn children have been killed by abortion in the United States,” the proclamation says. “It seems right and fitting that the citizens of the State of Nebraska are urged to pray for an end to abortion and for our fellow citizens who need our love and support.”
The entire declaration is as follows:
“Whereas, on January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court issued their Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in all 50 states; and
“Whereas, since Roe v. Wade, over 50 million unborn children have been killed by abortion in the United States; and
“Whereas, Nebraska state law states it is the ‘will of the people of the State of Nebraska and the members of the Legislature to provide protection for the life of the unborn whenever possible …’; and
“Whereas, Nebraska is a pro-life state that respects the dignity of human life, no matter how small; and
“Whereas, Nebraskans display our pro-life values in a multitude of ways from the crisis pregnancy centers that provide free care for expecting parents to the prayer vigils held across the state every year; and
“Whereas, it seems right and fitting that the citizens of the State of Nebraska are urged to pray for an end to abortion and for our fellow citizens who need our love and support.
“Now, therefore, I, Pete Ricketts, Governor of the State of Nebraska, do hereby proclaim the 22nd day of January, 2020 as A Statewide Day of Prayer in Nebraska, and I do hereby urge all individuals to pray on their own or with others, according to their faith, for an end to abortion.
“Be it further resolved that the citizens of the Great State of Nebraska are encouraged to take direct action to aid mothers, fathers and families in need, especially those expecting a child who cannot provide for themselves.”
