Today is the March for Life on the Mall in Washington. Many of my friends brave the weather and witness to the world the importance of valuing life from conception to natural death. Join me in praying for all of those attending and those whose lives are in danger due to the culture of death that prevails in this otherwise great nation.
“America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts — a child– as a competitor, an intrusion, an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to the unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privlege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign.”
