“He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children…” (Malachi 4:6)
Reflection: Abortion is a sin that not only women commit. Men commit it too. Though men cannot have abortions, they can choose abortions. A sin is committed when somebody willingly and knowingly chooses a moral wrong. If, then, a man decides that his girlfriend or wife should have an abortion, suggests it to her, pressures her, drives her to the abortion mill, or pays for the procedure, he has committed the sin of abortion.
Prayer: Lord, you are the source of all fatherhood, the inspiration and strength of all protectors. Bless all men with the wisdom to protect their children. Amen.
