Why don’t more pastors speak out against abortion? Some of them actually do not know how to connect the issue with the Scripture readings. They know that the readings are supposed to be the basis of their homilies, but they do not find many references to the unborn child or to the killing of such children.
But the themes of pro-life are on every page of Scripture. Homilies are not simply Scripture lessons. Rather they apply the great Biblical themes to the day-to-day challenges that believers face as they live their lives.
So, for instance, the Bible is clear that only God has dominion over human life – He made it, He cares for it, He owns it. That is why no human being can own or kill or devalue it.
