Stephen Harper

January 4, 2012

This past week i had the opportunity to attend the Onething conference in Kansas City that the International House of Prayer puts on every year from Dec. 28 – Dec. 31. As always it was an enjoyable time. Lou Engle, one of the leaders at IHOP and founder of Bound4Life, was speaking on the last day of the conference and he said something that greatly impacted me. He was speaking about President Obama, and how for 390 days he would be praying for Obama. His prayer would be that President Obama would become a Pro-Life supporter and change the laws of the U.S.A. that would make abortion illegal.

Immediately as he said this my heart was impacted for our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. Harper is a Christian and has done a lot of great work as far as his political life goes. I have heard people in the political realm say that Prime Minister Harper is one of the smartest politicians to ever be in office, regardless of what party is represented, and that gives me hope for our country. As i am reminded, i pray for various polititians, but something about Lou Engle’s cry of the heart for President Obama resonated with me.

The reality of the situation is that Canada’s laws towards abortion are worse than those of America. In Canada, it is legal to have an abortion right up until birth. I have even heard stories where doctors have pushed the baby back into the womb during the birth process just so they could still legally administer the abortion, because technically the baby is not born yet. This is sick. It’s twisted. And it needs to stop.

In the past few weeks i have been looking to re-write my prayer list. And what better time than this? As i re-write it, i will be adding certain politicians to the list, including Prime Minister Harper, on every day of the week. I will be praying that God will impact Mr. Harper so that he will change the laws of abortion that we currently have in Canada, to make abortion illegal in all respects.

Please join me in this prayer…

    This is an outright lie. Women can not have abortions up to birth. Abortion can only be obtained up to 12 weeks in Canada, with a few places being 20 weeks. Get your facts straight before you make a country look bad and yourself look stupid

    I wouldn’t normally respond to a comment like this, but in this case it is you who are misinformed. I have done my research, and yes, women can have an abortion up to the time of birth in Canada. If you need some help finding this information, i refer you to http://www.prochoiceactionnetwork-canada.org/articles/canada.shtml. Pay close attention to the first paragraph in the introduction, as well as the last paragraph in the section marked History of Abortion in Canada… “there’s no gestational limits in Canada.”

    Canada does look bad when it comes to it’s abortion rights (or lack thereof), and i look stupid anyway, but it has nothing to do with the words i use.

    Really, that is where you did your “research”? Yes, something that is posted on the pro choice network must be true and completely un biased. We can all forget the fact that law and actual access do not correlate, and the fact that many women do not have access to abortion at all.
    Abortion in remote areas of Canada is not available and most don’t have the means to leave these areas. In many areas It is up to the hospital to decide if they will/will not perform an abortion and many hospitals are religious based meaning they will not offer services past 12 weeks. In some provinces such as PEI abortion is completely unavailable.

    You are welcome to live in your little bubble of ignorance, but as you are pro life, these facts should make you feel a little better.
