Today’s Pro-Life Reflection








This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at:

“Behold, children are a gift from the Lord, a reward of the fruit of the womb” (Psalm 127:3).

Reflection: Because children are a “gift,” they can neither be demanded nor discarded. That is why it is wrong not only to abort them, but also to “create” them through artificial means that replace normal human procreation. We do not have a “right” to children, but rather an awesome privilege to receive them, if God so chooses to give the gift.

Prayer: Lord, deepen our understanding of children as a gift. Give generosity to all parents, and patience to all those who await that gift. Amen.

    Im saddened by how little love and respect there is for our children’s life in this country. We were not able to have children and even
    adoption didn’t work out for us. We would give our life for one of those little souls, to have and to hold.

    If they expect public policy to permit abortion, or taxpayers to fund it, they should certainly be willing to describe what it is.
