For the first time in 48 years, a case is before the Supreme Court that could overturn Roe v. Wade, the infamous decision that has torn the country apart over the debate about unborn life in the womb since it was handed down in 1973.
The impending Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case that will be heard on December 1 is the moment that the pro-life movement has been praying would come for decades. That's why Family Research Council is seizing the moment by participating in a special prayer event hosted by New Horizon Church in Jackson, Miss. on November 28 called Pray Together for Life. As New Horizon Church founder Bishop Ronnie C. Crudup Sr. noted on "Washington Watch," the event will reach across ethnic, denominational, and even political lines to bring together believers who will cry out to heaven for a divine intervention that will finely end the scourge of Roe.
"One of the things that I've said to people over and over again is that ... the African-American church is predominantly pro-life," he said. "You know, sometimes they don't get an opportunity to say that as much as maybe they should."
Bishop Crudup went on to underscore how the devaluing of life in the womb has had broad societal implications.
"I think when you devalue the life in the womb, you devalue life across the board," he said. "We certainly have experienced that in the African-American community. When you devalue life, it doesn't just stay in the womb. It affects people all across life. And so this is something [where] we seek to change violent circumstances in the African-American community. This is one of the places that we effect that change."
