Stand for life

I am no expert on the legal ramifications of the reversal of Roe V. Wade. It will take a lot of turns over a long time. The courts ruled, “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Then offered the grounds, “The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including … the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” Then stated,  “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

The anger of the pro-abortion activists is no surprise given the tantrum model of those driven by amoral value systems, but the apparent planned level of hostility and endangerment of their backlash is concerning.

While security at churches is elevated, few will feel the brunt of their anger more than faith-based pregnancy centers. Not too different than churches over the last 20 years, now those operating pregnancy centers are faced with the reality of needing an intentional security program.

Think About it

Last week I heard of a pregnancy center that discovered security was going to cost them $7,000 / month. This is the main reason Houses of Worship across America developed this great model of using volunteer security operators from among their congregations.

While pregnancy centers don’t have congregations, they do have a network of supporters in their community; primarily the friends and family of their workers, and in the churches they are affiliated with, who would volunteer for them.

We at the FBSN want to do all we can to help those pregnancy centers get responsible security operations stood up. The night before the overturn of Roe V. Wade, the FBSN Board of Directors approved 50% annual membership discounts for anyone serving as a volunteer or leader of a faith-based pregnancy center. This exposes them to the training, networking, best practices, resources and momentum of the association.

We also ask our existing FBSN members to reach out to the pregnancy centers in their region. Help them understand effective and responsible security doesn’t have to cost $7,000 / month.

We stand with the pregnancy centers. We stand for life.
