This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Roe v. Wade must be reversed” (US Bishops, “A Matter of the Heart”).
Reflection: Some are fond of saying that because of Roe vs. Wade, abortion is a settled issue. But it is no such thing. Roe v Wade did not “settle” abortion any more that the Dred Scott decision “settled” slavery, or the “Plessy v Ferguson” decision “settled” segregation. Those evils were defeated precisely because we are a nation that thirsts for equality and justice, and that thirst cannot be quenched or extinguished by a Supreme Court decision.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for the vigor you inspire in your people to resist injustice. Let that vigor grow! Amen!
