AMSTERDAM, Dec. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- Biblical Family Advocates is pleased to announce the profound blessings associated with the efforts of the United for Life conference sponsored by Schreeeuw om Leven, (Cry for Life), Netherlands, that brought together pro life advocates from at least 7 Countries.
The conference delegates, from India, Holland, Belgium, Russia, Hungary, USA and Germany came together not only to network their intentions and visions, but also to go to many places of international interest. These international delegates went to the European Union in Brussels, in which they were not only briefed by a representative of the European commission, but were also able to have an intercessory prayer gathering on behalf of the EU and its leadership. Additionally, efforts were made to contact the Dutch Parliament in The Hague, within its own courts and buildings with the message of life and publicly praying for their leadership. It was the intention of Cry for Life to encourage the Dutch Parliament to stand up for the rights of the unborn and consider the tragic effects of abortion on women.
One of most profound moments was the revealing of thousands of signed affidavits’ by women who had been injured by abortion. These documents of sworn testimony was assembled by attorney’s Allan Parker and Clayton Trotter of the Justice Foundation USA, www.txjf.org, and was given to those associated with the Dutch Parliament, in the foyer of Dutch assembly building as well as at a historic church, Noorderkerk Church, gathering in which Dutch Parliament member Dr. Bas J. van der Vlies was given the volumes of heart felt testimony of women wounded by abortion.
Present at these events were many courageous women who had themselves undergone the abortion procedure and have suffered the horrendous effects of abortion. They are part of the Justice Foundation’s project Operation Outcry called “Silent No More” in which the largest body of testimony has been assembled in the world regarding the effects of abortion on women. Centered prominently in these tragic effects is the need for churches to proclaim that abortion is a grave sin before God, but also proclaim the forgiveness of Christ for past abortions to help break the cycle of abortion, in which millions of children are killed world wide. This church event had followed the remarkable gathering of hundreds of peaceful pro life advocates who marched in downtown Amsterdam to publicly expose the horrific nature of abortion and its most destructive effects on men, women and children.
One of the delegates from India was Pastor John Ebenezar, who said that infanticide was commonplace in India and challenged pro life Christians to respond to this crisis. Another delegate was Vishal Mangalwadi, from India/Hollywood, whose scholarly work regarding the Bibles profound impact on western civilization was met with great interest from the largest media service in the Netherlands, the EO. “It was simply amazing how many opportunities were afforded to us in the Netherlands and Belgium in which we were praying constantly at many gatherings as well as becoming part of the political process by spiritual advocacy.” So says Phil Magnan Director of Biblical Family Advocates. “It is our hope to continue this fine work of bringing many different countries together on the issues of life with the understanding that many forms of ministry are needed to completely address the ongoing war on the unborn and those men and women involved in it. We found out that we have a lot of friends who have the same conviction to stop the atrocity of abortion.”
