[Today’s Prayer] France’s ‘Freedom to Abort Pregnancy’ constitutional amendment is just around the corner… “It will be an irrevocable right.”

On the 28th (local time), the French Senate passed a constitutional amendment to specify the guarantee of freedom of abortion in the constitution. As the right to abortion is threatened in the United States and parts of Europe, the purpose is to prevent a retreat by specifying this in the constitution.

According to the US CNN broadcast, <New York Times> (NYT), and <Washington Post> (WP), the French Senate on this day passed the constitutional amendment with an overwhelming vote of 267 votes in favor and 50 votes against. “This evening the Senate wrote a new chapter for women’s rights. This vote is historic,” said French Justice Minister Eric Dupont Moretti. “We will be the first country in the world to enshrine in its constitution the freedom of women to control their own bodies,” he said.

French President Emmanuel Macron also welcomed the Senate vote through a statement on social media and reminded, "I promised to make it irreversible by enshrining women's freedom to terminate pregnancy in the constitution."


In France, a woman is guaranteed to terminate a pregnancy if she wishes without any special reasons up to the 14th week of pregnancy, and social support for the right to terminate a pregnancy is high, so the right is not threatened. The background to this constitutional amendment attempt was the June 2022 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision and abolish constitutional protection for abortion, showing evidence that rights can actually retreat.

In the French government's explanation of the purpose of the legislation, the United States' repeal of Roe v. Wade was directly mentioned and "Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. There is a trend in many countries, even in Europe, that are trying to interfere with women's freedom to terminate a pregnancy if they wish."

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?” (Luke 15:4)

Lord, we hear the dismal news that France is seeking to enshrine the freedom of abortion in its constitution.

The Lord treasures one life so much that he says he leaves ninety-nine sheep to find the one lost sheep.

However, in France, abortion is said to be ‘a woman’s right to control her own body’ and that her right is more precious than life.

Lord, please stop the evil constitutional amendments that will take countless lives.

Please help those who say it is a woman's right, do not value life, and live only for themselves. Let them realize their sins and repent.

Despite these dark times, would you let more people of faith rise up and not follow the world, but boldly shout out what is right so that God's word can come true.
