“We are all his children.” (Acts 17:28)
Reflection: Abortion has killed children who may have been great scientists, doctors, inventors, and Presidents. Yet every life taken by abortion is equally valuable. People do no derive their value from how productive or famous they are or may become. The most hidden, obscure, and humble life has as much intrinsic value, and as many human rights, as the most notable personalities in history.
Prayer: Lord, I cannot begin to imagine the plans you had for each aborted child. May we realize more deeply the value of each one of them, even the most humble and forgotten. Amen.
