The 40 Days for Life Shreveport-Bossier group cheered on flood waters that threatened the Bossier City Medical Suite, an abortion provider, in Louisiana on March 9.

Chris P. Davis posted pictures of the flood water around the abortion clinic with this message on the group's Facebook page: "The sum of human capability pales in comparison to the power of God. THIS IS WHY WE PRAY. What the Supreme Court has reopened, God has now closed!"

The mention by Davis of "What the Supreme Court has reopened" may have been a reference to a decision by the high court to temporarily block a Louisiana law, last week, that required doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, which is not needed in the case of a medical emergency. The same requirement was placed on abortion clinics in Texas.

Numerous people wrote "Amen," praises and various other thanks to God below Davis' posting.

According to, the "40 Days for Life" movement describes itself as "a compassionate, peaceful campaign uniting Christians in the Shreveport-Bossier area with others in hundreds of cities around the world in prayer to end abortion."

Louisiana Right to Life, another pro-life group, posted (and later deleted) the same flooding picture on its Facebook page with the caption: "interesting development at the Bossier abortion facility."

The pro-life groups did not mention the victims of the massive flooding in the state.

According to local TV station KTBS, owners of 3,500 homes in nine sub-divisions in Bossier City were told to evacuate on March 9 because of the flooding.

"We're flooded out over there, so we're trying to get everything because, most likely, we’re not going to be able to stay in our homes tonight," Jennifer Williams, a resident, told the news station.

"Because after a while, with more rain coming in, we're probably not going to be able to get in and out of our neighborhood because a lot of it is under water now," Williams added.
