These reflections are taken from the book “Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day” by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“A law which violates an innocent person’s natural right to life is unjust and, as such, is not valid as a law” – Evangelium Vitae 90.
Reflection: The Church does not say that laws allowing abortion are just “bad laws.” The Church declares that they are no laws at all. Rather, they are acts of violence, and must be resisted rather than obeyed. To be valid and binding, a law must never contradict the law of God.
Prayer: Father, as we live amidst many unjust laws, give us the grace to recognize them as invalid, to say so to others, and to work to change them. Amen!
