“To refuse to take part in committing an injustice is not only a moral duty; it is also a basic human right” – (The Gospel of Life, 74).
Reflection: One of the key battlegrounds in the fight for life is to defend the freedom of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, judges and other professionals to refuse to violate their conscience as they carry out their work. At times this freedom is secure, and at other times, fidelity carries a high price.
Prayer: Lord, provide light and strength to all those who may face the loss of their jobs in order to maintain their integrity. Protect us all as we do what is right. Amen.
