This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28).
Reflection: The single largest destroyer of human life in our nation and in the world is not poverty or AIDS; it is not heart disease or cancer; it is not terrorism or war. It is abortion. Some 50 million children around the world are killed each year by this procedure.
Prayer: Save us, O Lord, from the forces of destruction, especially those that we unleach upon ourselves. Enable us to pursue those things that will preserve our species and continue to fulfill your original command to multiply. Amen.
