This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Bloodshed follows bloodshed” (Hosea 4:2)
Reflection: If a mother has the right to choose to kill her innocent, unwanted child, why doesn’t the child have the right to kill her innocent, unwanted mother? The deadly “logic” of putting choice above life endangers everyone. The “right to die” movement has nothing to do with people wanting to die. It has everything to do with people wanting to kill others whom they believe would be better off dead.
Prayer: Lord, I affirm today the primacy of life over choice. May every choice be guided and guarded by the immeasurable value of life. Amen.
