Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day

by Fr. Frank Pavone

Friends, please return to this page every day for a new reflection that will enrich your daily prayer life and give you new vigor to stand up for the unborn.

These reflections are taken from a book written by Fr. Frank Pavone which you can order on our online store.

August 5



"I put to death and I bring to life" (Deuteronomy 32:39).

Reflection: No religion, and no pro-life group, advocates that we are obliged to take every single treatment and procedure available to keep us alive. Foregoing a worthless treatment is not, and should not be called, euthanasia or suicide. Yet while there are such things as worthless treatments, there is no such thing as a worthless life. We can and should allow the dying to die; we must never intend the death of the living. We may reject a treatment; we must never reject a life.

Prayer: Give your peace, O Lord, to all who are dying today. Amen.
