This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“All have a responsibility for developing legislative projects which will contribute to a society in which the dignity of each person is recognized” (The Gospel of Life, 90).
Reflection: The law called the “Born Alive Infants Protection Act” states that babies born alive at any time of gestation, even as a result of a failed abortion, are to be treated as persons under the law. To be able to protect unwanted babies after a failed abortion brings us one step closer to protecting them before an abortion.
Prayer: Lord, please hasten the progress being made in our laws for the protection of life! Amen.
