We recently observed the 40th anniversary of the first landing of human beings on the moon. That event expands the imagination as it considers the possibilities of what human beings can achieve. Building on this theme, the Catholic Vote organization created a pro-life ad which shows the baby in the womb developing toward taking his first step, and then shows the first steps of the Apollo 11 crew on the moon. The ad invites people to imagine the possibilities that are open to every human life.
We have no idea of how much our world has lost in the tens of millions of lives that are ended each year by abortion. What goals would have been achieved, what progress made, what Divine plans fulfilled, had these individuals been allowed to live?
