This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“The Lord is the Judge of the nations’” (Psalm 7:9)
Reflection: On January 22, 1973, the most disastrous decision of the US Supreme Court was handed down — the decision called Roe vs. Wade, that legalized abortion. Today, in Churches and on public streets all over America, people of all ethnic backgrounds and all faiths are praying and protesting that decision, and recommitting themselves to the pro-life movement.
Prayer: Lord, I unite myself today with all my brothers and sisters in this great pro-life cause. I reaffirm my hope that the day will come when protection will be restored to the unborn and we will all rejoice in the gift of life. Amen.
