Dear Abby…






A recent “Dear Abby” column was about a couple who had their child aborted and faced opposition from another family member. They weren’t sure whether to keep asking forgiveness. Abby messed up the response, claiming abortion was none of the family member’s business.

This attitude reinforces the blind spot too many have to the unborn child, and to the fact that abortion is an act of violence that kills that child.

What, then, is our business? Is it not our business to intervene to prevent violence and killing? Is it not our business to rescue children in danger, no matter who is hurting them?
Ultimately, someone else’s abortion is our business, because the children in danger of abortion are our brothers and sisters. Ours is the business of love, which intervenes to save the neighbor.
