I was recently talking with one of our medical advisors who is a psychiatrist, and he was pointing out how we in the pro-life movement often think that when people are upset by seeing photos of aborted babies, or are traumatized by taking part in abortion, that there is somehow a better or more ideal reaction.

In reality, the normal human reaction to the violent killing of a child of its own species should indeed by upset and trauma. That is a sign that we are in touch with reality.

What’s far more troubling is when people see abortion – or even have one – and act like it’s “no big deal.” That is unhealthy, out of touch with reality, and downright dangerous.

For them, indeed, we must pray.
