This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“God…set me apart even before my birth” (Galatians 1:15).
Reflection: Many pro-abortion public officials will say they believe that life begins at conception. But then they say they cannot legislate that belief on those who think it begins later. But suppose someone said, “I believe that life begins at birth, but I cannot legislate my beliefs on those who think it begins later.” Then the newborn would lose their legal protection. Such protection is needed precisely when some believe others shouldn’t have it.
Prayer: Lord, give our legislators, and all your people, wisdom to know the difference between legislating beliefs and protecting lives. Amen.
