This law does not get at the root of anything, it is the women themselves who think they may need an abortion that may cause some problems.
Romans 8:7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.---ESV
Apparently the men, and the Oklahoma Legislature pass a lot of foolish bills. I don't see where they ever address the problem. Well, unless they improve Medicaid Have they accounted for the expenses of giving birth? They do have to make giving birth affordable for poor women, for example.
While Wikipedia has really a good article on Franklin Graham, q.v.,
I have had a hard time finding the Bible version that he would be using on one of his, "Crusades"
But just looking at what I could find with Google he has a good sense of using a modern version that is very readable and good which is the new King James version of the Bible so, if he gets the Britain and does his thing, people will be able to understand himđâ

Democrats argued in vain that the measure amounts to âbig brotherismâ â an intrusion into personal safety, and that the ethics and morals of abortion is far from established. Rep. Collin Walke, D-Oklahoma City, pointed out that the Southern Baptist Convention once argued in favor of legalized abortion, and that the Puritans did not consider abortion wrong.
Rep. Monroe Nichols, D-Tulsa, said abortion rates have gone down most in states that have not tried to further restrict it and argued the most effective measure to reduce abortions has been easy access to contraceptives....

It seems to me that the Romish church, wants to ban contraceptives oh, and some contraceptives are an effect abortion also.

Kitty Worthing wrote: Data sharing and charging have a cumulative effect: they deter patients from seeking and receiving potentially life-saving treatment, and ultimately, people die. I know of patients who have had to crowdfund thousands of pounds [ÂŁ]for necessary and unavoidable care, something that is more common in countries like the United States. The government knows that if a patient isnât able to raise those funds and is denied care, they will not receive any care at all.
....The charging system is framed as part of efforts to reduce NHS overspending. However, so-called âdeliberate health tourismâ accounts for only 0.3% of the NHS annual budget, compared to the massive debt of over ÂŁ200bn to private finance initiatives for contracts such as those in the NHS. It is clear that these callous policies are ideologically motivated, and that healthcare is being used to extend the hostile environment and to scapegoat migrants for the underfunding and privatisation of our NHS.

Chico Harlan wrote: ...the official papal follow-up to the bishops' Amazon meeting last year â that called for no substantive change.

But on the topic of priestly shortages, Francis simply asked bishops to pray for more vocations and urged missionariesÂš to head to the Amazon.
Those modest recommendations acted as a reminder of how Francis, despite a reputation as a reformer, has proceeded with caution in the face of deepening polarization within the church and traditionalist opposition to his papacy....

I don't understand all the proof texts just Mr Graham should not be surprised at all how about the backlash to his visit. The LGBT crowd tried to have his Visa revoked in 2018. Some the more liberal Christians at that time wanted him to stay home also
Just because Boris Johnson it's now a prime minister doesn't mean Mr. Graham is going to get a free ride.
Even Christ told the apostles to shake the dust off their feet oh the places that wouldn't listen to the gospel, i.e.,
As many as donât receive you, when you depart from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a testimony against them.â
Well there I did it.
Of course, not comparing Mr Graham to either the apostles or the Apostle Paul as far as that goes, the latter had the good sense to leave a synagogue or area that refused to listen to him.
Neil, you're quite right, very few churches recognize the Sabbath, the Shabbat is always on the Saturdayâ but then Christ specifically pointed out that we are not enslaved to that.
I would recommend the sermon, the laws that we will pay attention to as Christians.
"Nowhere in the Old Testament is there any word that the Gentile nations ought to observe the sabbath , or keep the law. It was for the nation Israel. People come presenting supposed truth that will help us be more godly and will stem the tide of decadence around us. These are subtle forms to corrupt the sufficiency of Christ and His work accomplished in our lives."---Dr. Rugh http://tinysa.com/268399 (Legalism is Shadow, Christ is Substance)

Now, that's one way to call it Timothy. Apparently they will have to depend on large churches such as what Jeffress runs.
Well, this just means you need something like Obamacare, which the present President is trying to destroy in his latest budgetâđ
You can be anti-abortion and still support a Universal Health Care Program.
Timothy, you seem to go to a large church apparently a quite large Church. Any large Evangelical church that doesn't do like Thomas Roads Baptist church did, is completely hypocritical about abortion
Joseph D. Harder Ph.D. wrote: Thomas Road Baptist Church, Falwellâs church in Lynchburg, Virginia, had grown into one of the megachurches of the 1970s. By 1970, it had around three thousand members, and was the ninth-largest church in the nation. The church operated a youth camp, a residential program for alcoholics, and a âfamily centerâ that provided help for needy families.
In the 1980s the church started a crisis pregnancy center that housed young women so they could carry their babies to term; the center also arranged adoptions for those women who chose not to raise their children.âĄ

Mello has co-sponsored several bills in Nebraska's unicameral legislature that would restrict abortion rights, including a 2009 measure requiring doctors to inform women seeking abortions about the availability of an ultrasound.
Sanders pushed back against the criticism. "The truth is that in some conservative states there will be candidates that are popular candidates who may not agree with me on every issue. I understand it. That's what politics is about," Sanders told NPR.

QC, just how much is the modern Church fulfilling almost anything of the book of James?
14. What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can faith save him? 15. And if a brother or sister is naked and in lack of daily food, 16. and one of you tells them, âGo in peace. Be warmed and filled;â yet you didnât give them the things the body needs, what good is it? 17. Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead in itself. 18. Yes, a man will say, âYou have faith, and I have works.â Show me your faith without works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
