“Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children,” is printed on the Cathedral calendar for Jan. 22, 2019. How appropriate, as on this day 46 years ago, our Supreme Court justices passed Roe vs. Wade.
At a National Prayer Breakfast attended by President Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mother Teresa said: “What is taking place in America is a war against the child. If we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”
Some people continue to ask, “When does human life begin?” The American College of Pediatricians responded on March, 2017: “Human biological research confirms that human life begins at conception. This statement focuses on the scientific evidence of when a human life begins.”
Unborn human babies are at high risk -- not just because of heart, cancer or chronic respiratory diseases, but because of abortion, the deliberate killing of unborn human babies alive in their mothers’ wombs.
How can this be, in a world that is becoming increasingly more scientifically advanced; a world that has nearly eradicated diseases like polio, leprosy, etc?
According to Christianheadlines.com, the news site and data site Worldometers reported that 42 million abortions took place in the world in 2018, making it the leading cause of death worldwide.
So America: what are we, you and I, doing about this? Will the top news for the end of 2019 be repeated?
