This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“How is it still possible to speak of the dignity of every human person when the killing of the weakest and most innocent is permitted? In the name of what justice is the most unjust of discriminations practiced: some individuals are held to be deserving of defense and others are denied that dignity? When this happens, the process leading to the breakdown of a genuinely human co-existence and the disintegration of the State itself has already begun” (John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.20).
Reflection: Abortion is not just an “issue.” It deteriorates the very foundations of civilization.
Prayer: Preserve our society, Lord, by freeing it from legal abortion. Amen.
