This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life …” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
Reflection: The early First Century document called the “Teaching of the Twelve Apostles” begins by saying, “There are two ways, one of life and the other of death, and great is the difference between the two.” It states, “Do not murder a child by abortion or kill a newborn infant.” Throughout the centuries, this teaching has been consistent.
Prayer: Lord, you have revealed the road of happiness to us and to our world. Keep us, in our laws and in our culture, on the path of life. Amen.
