“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

This week, Democrat Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona dashed the hopes of their more radical colleagues amid renewed calls to pass a federal law that would overrule state limits or prohibitions on abortion.

Calls for slim Democrat majorities in the House and Senate to quickly advance a bill, the inaccurate and grossly named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” that would codify Roe v.
