LETTER FROM ALLAN PARKER, PRESIDENT, THE JUSTICE FOUNDATION
It's now official! The Supreme Court of the United States has scheduled a status conference on January 22, 2016 - The 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton - to consider whether to accept the North Dakota case banning abortion after six weeks.
In addition they took no action on Jan 15 in the Arkansas case so that court is also still before the court as well.
This is a year of miracles, signs and wonders and this is a sign from the Lord. It only fell on this date because the Arkansas abortionists tried to ignore the case and not file a response brief, and the Supreme Court demanded a response brief from the Arkansas abortionists.
Seeing this unusual interest from the court, the North Dakota abortionists asked for extra time to file their response brief. That request for extra time by the abortionist was granted which threw the status conference consideration date for North Dakota to Jan 22. Their time is up. The covenant with death will be annulled, the agreement with the grave will not stand. The Lord will rise up as in the valley of Gibeon, but we must pray and contend. Isaiah 28:14-22
NOW UNTIL JANUARY 25 IS CRITICAL!
The Arkansas law bans abortion after 12 weeks. The Arkansas Petition for Certiorari (Please Take Our Case), the abortionist reply brief and The Justice Foundation Brief on behalf of 3,355 Women Hurt by Abortion and an Abortion Survivor have been distributed to the Supreme Court judges and clerks.
The Supreme Court met in private on January 15, 2016, at 9 a.m. Eastern to decide what to do with the case. Each justice and their staff had the opportunity to read the briefs and evaluate them independently. On January 15, they met to discuss whether to take the case, to put the case on hold for further consideration or to deny the cert. petition which would mean that the decision below stands. They did not deny cert. (don't take the case) but they too no other action so they are still considering what to do.
North Dakota's law bans abortion after six weeks. North Dakota's briefing is now complete. It was distributed to the judges last week and is set for status conference at 9 a.m. Eastern, on Jan. 22, 2016, which could last all day. Same options as above exist for the court at that time. The judges and their three briefing attorneys are reading the states briefs, the abortionist briefs, and the briefs of thousands of post abortive women who are part ofOperating Outcry: Silent No More.
It is time to cry out to God so that our outcry may be heard. Our three main arguments are:
1. The child in the womb is a human from the moment of conception.
2. Abortion hurts women
3. There is a better way to help women.
All 50 states are now willing to remove all burden of unwanted child care from any woman. Safe Haven laws allow a woman to transfer here child to society without killing the child and injuring herself. See brief below for more details.
Cert has already been granted in The Texas case involving ambulatory surgical centers and hospital admitting privileges and requirements and is set for Oral Argument on March 2, 2016. This case has already been getting lots of media attention and the Reuters article (click here) shows that your prayers to bind the abortion powers have already been heard because this is a tremendously fair article about the Texas case, including quotes by two women of Operation Outcry: Silent No More and myself.
Many pro-life groups are writing amicus briefs in this case which are due Feb 3. Texas' brief is due Jan 23. The abortionists briefs and their friends are on file now, with many prominent Democrat women telling the court they had to have abortions to get where they are now professionally.
A group of 47 theologians and ethicists, which includes professors from apostate seminaries, witches and Druids and four high priestesses have file a brief claiming that denying abortion to women denies them their religious freedom. I don't think they use the word child sacrifice, but instead use abortion and religious liberty. Pray to bind these spirits, do not revile angelic majesties, but ask the Lord to rebuke and bind these religious and political spirits.
Because they have already taken the Texas case the final written abortion decision will probably not be released publicly until June 30, 2016.
Thank you for your prayers and your support and the courageous testimonies of the women of Operation Outcry: Silent No More. This is a team effort. You can click here to read the Arkansas brief. Appendix A includes the names of all of the women and the names of the children of the women who chose to name their child, as well. Appendix B are the excerpts of the testimony of 90 women of Arkansas. The Table of Contents gives you a good summary of the Brief if you just want to read a summary. See first two pages after title page.
The North Dakota brief is similar, so I am not including it.
Please continue to pray as before Isaiah 28:14-22 (that the covenant of death
would be annulled, that the agreement with the grave would not stand) over the
Court, Jeremiah 9:17-24 (asking that the women's testimonies would teach the
judges' eyes to mourn for the children we have lost; and ask the Lord to bind the
abortion power, to bind the strong man over abortion, over the Supreme Court
of the United States and over the media as well.

It was on day 43 of our 45 days of fasting and prayer in 2013 that our Intercessors encountered the theophany of the "sound like a mighty rushing wind" at the
UPDATE ON ARKANSAS CASE
FROM ALLAN PARKER, PRESIDENT, THE JUSTICE FOUNDATION
On Tuesday, January 19, the Supreme Court denied the Cert. Petition of Arkansas. That means that the decision of the lower court that the statute is unconstitutional remains in place. However, the informed consent provisions of the statute, which require the doctor to perform a heartbeat and tell the woman the child has a heartbeat and the chances of survival to birth stay in place.
That leaves only the North Dakota case and the Texas case. The North Dakota case is a much stronger case than the Arkansas since there was massive evidence presented by theNorth Dakota Attorney Generals as opposed to the no evidence by Arkansas, however, desperate times require desperate prayers. Cry out to the Lord for mercy and justice!
Below is an encouraging letter from the sponsor of the Arkansas Heartbeat bill to theAttorney handling the Supreme Court brief for North Dakota:
I am the prime sponsor of ACT 301 the Arkansas Heartbeat Protection Act which was just denied cert by the U.S. Supreme Court today. While I am of course disappointed in this decision to refuse a review of the courts concept of "viability" and the obvious need to do so with advances in medical technology, I am at least comforted that all of the informed consent provisions we included in our bill have been left intact.
I am contacting you after asking for someone to contact that is in charge of the North Dakota Heartbeat Bill which is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Colin Jorgenson provided me your contact.
On March 6, 2013, Arkansas made history by passing the strongest Pro-Life bill to be enacted into law since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Weeks later, North Dakota made history by exceeding our efforts with your own heartbeat bill that did what we originally had intended. Arkansas had begun with protection of an unborn child from the moment theheartbeat could be detected, but ended with only a 12 week ban. Timing and history brought our states together and I am grateful for North Dakota.
I simply want to thank the legislature of North Dakota and all of those in your state that have remained in the battle for your own heartbeat bill. You have the support of myself and millions of others who believe that the voices of nearly 60 million innocent babies that have been killed in this nation under the guise of "legal abortion" cry out for justice. No other nation in modern history I am aware of has more innocent blood upon its hands than theUnited States of America concerning abortion. A sad legacy that eternity will not easily forgive and history will never forget.
I firmly believe that you and every other person who has fought for those who cannot fight for themselves on this issue will be commended in eternity for your efforts. We pray for theNorth Dakota bill to be granted cert and we pray for your victory. I understand thechances are slim, but if you are granted cert, I want to be there to support you. I am but one person in this epic battle to reawaken the soul of America to finally face the reality of what we are allowing to happen in our nation.
Sadly, I have no confidence in the current U.S. Supreme Court in light of recent decisions that totally reject the traditions, history and will of the people in our nation. We have a crisis in America that must be addressed and the Courts are part of the problem.
Please reach out whenever I may be of service, sir. God bless you and your efforts. Nothing you have done has been in vain. Some of us have to be the point of the spear on any issue of importance and our states have been joined together in this noble cause.
We all live to fight the good fight another day. Me and my family have paid a high price for our decision to stand firm on this issue, but the battles have done nothing but make us stronger and more resolved than ever. When I stand before God someday, I will have no regrets on this issue, for I have done the best that I could to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves and beg our nation for mercy.
When there is a heartbeat, there is life - no matter what any black robed justice may say.
