This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Take warning, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear…” (Psalm 2:10-11).
Reflection: Pro-abortion politicians say, “The government should not be involved in a personal decision like abortion.” But the government got “too involved” in abortion when it claimed to have the authority to authorize it. The Declaration of Independence says government exists to secure the rights already bestowed by the Creator. Some say it is none of the government’s business to prohibit abortion. Actually, it is none of the government’s business to permit abortion.
Prayer: Instill in our civic leaders, O God, the proper fear of your kingship. May they realize the limits of their authority. Amen.
