The Holy Spirit, who comes at Pentecost, is called the Spirit of Truth, and His gifts enable us to understand the value of creation. We can therefore ask the Holy Spirit to give us an understanding of the value of the human person. “The Spirit himself gives witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” Abortion, on the other hand, sees the human person as a disposable object.
The Spirit of Truth enables us to understand the difference between good and evil. This works directly against the dynamics of the abortion movement, which identifies a moral evil as a “right.” Devotion to the Holy Spirit is a key element in praying for the conversion of mind and heart necessary for those who defend and perform abortions.
