“We need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception.” (Evangelium Vitae, 58)
Reflection: Some call abortion “termination of pregnancy.” But so is birth. The fact is that every pregnancy terminates. The issue is how. Abortion supporters are simply masking an act of violence with their language. It’s like a man killing his wife and saying, “I terminated our marriage.”
Prayer: Spirit of truth, keep us free from the power of deception. Give us clear minds to know truth, and courageous tongues to speak it. Amen.
