This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“From my mother’s womb, you have been my God.” (Psalm 22:11)
Reflection: Abortion supporters sometimes ask, “Why don’t you focus on caring for people who are already alive?”
But if children in the womb are not already alive, why does it take an abortion procedure to kill them? When we speak about unborn children, we are not speaking about “possible” children; we are speaking about real children who are already quite alive.
Prayer: Father, open our eyes to recognize our brothers and sisters in every place where they live, including in their mothers’ womb. Open our hearts to love them as you do. Amen.
