This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“In everything, deal with others as you would like them to deal with you” (Matthew 7:12).
Reflection: The “Golden Rule,” applies also when the “others” are unborn children, scheduled for abortion. We are to do what we would want others to do if we were in the same situation. We sometimes wonder how many people we should risk offending, or how many positions we should risk losing. We can stop wondering. “In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”
Prayer: Father, in this simple rule, you have shown us how far we need to go in defending human lives. Give us the courage to carry it out. Amen.
