“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28).

Reflection: The single largest destroyer of human life in our nation and in the world is not poverty or AIDS; it is not heart disease or cancer; it is not terrorism or war. It is abortion. Some 50 million children around the world are killed each year by this procedure.

Prayer: Save us, O Lord, from the forces of destruction, especially those that we unleach upon ourselves. Enable us to pursue those things that will preserve our species and continue to fulfill your original command to multiply. Amen.

Abortion and Crime Rate

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Studies that say abortion decreases the crime rate have been refuted by experts. But let’s presume for a moment that abortion did in fact reduce the crime rate. All that would prove is that that some killing can be replaced by other kinds of killing, and that some kinds of sins can replace other kinds of sins. In what way does it improve society to simply replace violence against big people with violence against little people?

What we have to remember about abortion is that it is an absolute evil. No matter what good benefits could ever arise from it, there is never a reason in a million years why even a single abortion could be permitted. Each single abortion undermines the entire moral order, and therefore must be opposed with all our strength.

“And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment” (John 16:8)

Reflection:Here is the reaction of a ‘pro-choice’ person upon seeing what abortion is: “I have looked at the pictures on this site
on
aborted babies and I started to cry. I have always believed in freedom of choice but after seeing this, I have to say this is just murder.”

Prayer: Lord, as you promised, your Holy Spirit teaches us about you, and helps us to see the full truth about what is right and wrong. May that Spirit reveal to our world its sin and its salvation. Amen.

“Bloodshed follows bloodshed” (Hosea 4:2)

Reflection: If a mother has the right to choose to kill her innocent, unwanted child, why doesn’t the child have the right to kill her innocent, unwanted mother? The deadly “logic” of putting choice above life endangers everyone. The “right to die” movement has nothing to do with people wanting to die. It has everything to do with people wanting to kill others whom they believe would be better off dead.

Prayer: Lord, I affirm today the primacy of life over choice. May every choice be guided and guarded by the immeasurable value of life. Amen.
