“No word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing… of a human being. ” (Evangelium Vitae, 58)
Reflection: In discussing abortion, its supporters never defend the act of abortion itself, but only the alleged right of someone to have one. They focus on the freedom to choose it, but avoid describing what is chosen. Our job is to focus the discussion on abortion itself, on what the act is.
Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit of truth. Fill our minds and give speech to our tongues. Give us grace to always face truth honestly, and enable us to challenge those who would evade it. Amen.
