Iran has detained America citizen Saeed Abedini, on 9/26/12 because it views his Christian activities as a threat to its national security. Help free Saeed.

Pastor Saeed Abedini’s Wife Naghmeh Testifies to Congress on behalf of her husband:

Saeed’s father visited Saeed in prison this month.

A Post published by Pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini’s Facebook page updates their followers:

    Saeed had heard about the deal with Iran and wanted to share the following message with you all (see below). Please pray for Saeed as the situation inside of the prison has become worst for him at the hands of the hardliners who do not like that he is an American and also that he is a convert from Islam to Christianity. These are the same hardliners who have been chanting death to America. It is urgent that we get him out. Please join our family in prayer.

    Saeed’s letter:

    I know that so many of you have felt that I have been left behind after a deal was reached with Iran and I am still not home.

    I want you to know that as I wrote the thank you letter to President Obama after he had visited my family in January of this year (which he read at the national prayer breakfast), that God is in control of all countries and leadership in the world when the body of Christ comes together in united prayer. He is in control and He is the One who beautifully writes the history over all governments, presidents, and any P5+1 negotiating team.

    We are all looking for a safer, more friendly world and because of this desire many of us are happy and others un-happy about the deal. Please join me in using these emotions that have been awakened to give fervor to united prayer for God’s chosen nation, for America, and for the whole world.

Inmate’s Request for Abortion Denied

WEATHERFORD, Texas, May 24, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) — The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has threatened legal action against a Texas sheriff, claiming he violated an inmate’s constitutional “right” to an abortion by refusing to transport her to an abortion clinic.

Sheriff Larry Fowler, however, said he would not use taxpayer funds to facilitate the deed.

“My personal feeling is I don’t feel like the taxpayers of Parker County would think much of their sheriff spending taxpayer money to take people to abortion clinics,” Fowler told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“I don’t think they would want me to even entertain that notion.”

Lisa Graybill of the ACLU Foundation of Texas said that court precedent has established the “constitutional right of incarcerated pregnant women to access abortion care,” in a letter to Parker County Attorney John Forrest. She also said that the woman’s family had arranged the appointment and was going to pay for the abortion.

Sheriff Fowler said, however, that the woman could have simply posted bond and gone to the abortion mill by herself. The county attorney John Forrest also stated that Fowler was following the law.

The ACLU is not going to sue, as the woman was recently released on probation and obtained an abortion without government assistance; however, Graybill threatened legal action should a similar incident occur.

“The purpose of our letter [to John Forrest] is to put Parker County on notice that any future restrictions on women’s reproductive health care will be challenged in court,”said Graybill in a statement.

In October, an Arizona judge sided with the ACLU to forbid Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio from charging female inmates transportation costs for obtaining abortions – even though the sheriff charged transportation for other medical procedures – due to a constitutional “right” to abortion. Arpaio’s office at the time said he planned to appeal the ruling.
