This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“I will praise your name, O Lord … for you have rescued me” (Psalm 54:8-9).
Reflection: Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout pregnancy, agreed to let her name be used in a case she hardly understood. She agreed to lie about how she became pregnant so that the case would have a better chance. She never did have the abortion. Eventually, she spoke out publicly at pro-abortion events, and even worked in an abortion mill. Now, she is completely pro-life and works to end abortion.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for Norma’s conversion, a sign of hope for our culture. Amen.
