Wednesday, July 18, 2013 our awesome, kind and merciful God allowed our Governor Rick Perry to sign into law, HB2; better known as the "Pro-life Bill". This is history in the making and I pray, along with many others, it is only the beginning.
I pray that HB2, which protects the lives of precious unborn babies who are 20 weeks or more old, will be used by God as a springboard to illegalize abortion, as well as mandating proper education for expectant mothers in our country.
One of the things I love about this bill is that it provides loving and protective healthcare for women who are less than 20 weeks pregnant and considering abortion. Protecting the health and lives of the mother and baby are both important aspects of the bill, as both lives are precious to God, and to every true pro-lifer.
I watched this entire video (below) and caught myself clapping and laughing with joy and relief, along with those who were blessed enough to attend this glorious occasion. I also found myself in grateful tears, as I thank God multiple times for His provision of godly leaders who fear and love Him more than they fear men or love the approval and accolades of men.
"For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ." ~Galatians 1:10
The best portions of this video is when the speakers thank God and give glory and praise to Him for allowing them to serve and honor Him with this bill. You'd be blessed to watch the entire video, but if you only have time to watch the signing, it's at the 22.22 minute mark.
I'm rejoicing today with many fellow Texans as well as thousands of brothers and sisters in Christ across this country, and multitudes in other countries. We give all thanks and glory to God for giving us leaders in this country that still love Him, that still revere Him and that still live to do what He saved us and left us here to do—love God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strengths, and to love our neighbors better than ourselves (Mk 12:30-31).
Unfortunately, many pro-choicers are not celebrating with us, though this bill is for them too. Pro-choicers don't seem to understand that we pro-lifers value all of life. We don't favor the mother's life over her baby's or vice versa. We pro-lifers intensely desire for both the mother and baby to enjoy God's gift of life and pray that they will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior so they can be comforted here on earth, and then enjoy all eternity with the Almighty, through repentance and faith in Christ Jesus the Lord.

I'll close with these wise words from our Governor.
"Eternity is a really long time and the things we do in this temporal world are going to have a long impact." ~Gov. Rick Perry
Soli Deo Gloria...y'all!
