This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“We get the public officials we deserve. Their virtue — or lack thereof — is a judgment not only on them, but on us” (US Bishops, Living the Gospel of Life, 34).
Reflection: This powerful statement points to our responsibility to elect pro-life candidates and keep pro-abortion candidates out of office. They cannot get into office, of course, without a sufficient number of people voting for them. Voters need to ask, If a politician can’t respect the life of a little baby, how is he supposed to respect mine?
Prayer: Lord, raise up in our nation wise and virtuous voters, that we may have godly leaders. Amen.
