Pro-life states are to be blacklisted in a scandalous, new travel ban by San Francisco. The travel ban has been declared on twenty-two Pro-life states. They are being blacklisted over their new “restrictive” abortion laws. The ban will come into effect on Jan 1, 2020. This means that city employees will not be able to travel on government-funded work trips to the states named. San Francisco Mayor, London Breed, stated,
“…By limiting travel and contracting with certain states, we are sending a clear message to states that disregard the right to abortion,” as reported by Fox News.
While the Pro-life States blacklisted face a travel ban, some will also face an additional threat. The new rules will also prohibit the signing of any new business contracts. This applies to businesses whose headquarters are based in the states on the list. So why is this happening? Because the states took a stand for life!
Alabama had already had to face a travel ban because of what San Francisco officials termed, “discriminatory LGBTQ laws”. Alabama had also recently passed a law making it a felony for physicians to perform or attempt to perform the abortion procedure.
Pro-life: The Truth
It would appear that we are living in the last days. In Isaiah 5: 20 it is written,
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.“
It would also be true to say that the battle continues to preserve life. Prayer is now banned outside some clinics, pro-life demonstrators constantly face banning, pro-life marchers are excluded in what is advertised as an “all-inclusive” event. The reason? There was no room at the event. The event was hosted in Washington DC!
However, we must continue to fight the good fight. To speak the truth and to speak for those who cannot. Life matters.
Therefore, what is right and what is wrong? How does a young person growing up in society today discern right and wrong, when such confusion comes from those in authority?
Without the Word of God, our society has no hope. and as man continues to stumble his way through life, he does so like a ship without a rudder. Therefore, it is only the Bible that can provide us with a conscience, with hope, and above all guidance. Only Jesus can lead us in the right direction.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life…” (John 14:6)
