The Right to Life


Respect Life MonthOctober is Respect Life Month, when we are called to reflect on life, the right to life for the unborn and, in the big picture, the right to life for all human beings.
 
We must do all we can to end the evil of abortion. We need to be aware of the leaders in our country who do not see abortion as an evil in our society and urge them as often as possible to create a society that does not accept abortion as an answer. We need to offer prayers every day for women who feel faced with the decision to end their pregnancies so that they will be strong enough to refuse abortion or to see abortion as their only option.
 
We must do all we can to maintain a world where human life in all its stages is respected and given its full dignity. We need to be alert and more conscious of laws—local, state, national and international—which concern human and civil rights in any way. We must seek justice in all aspects of society to sustain healthy ways of living, solid educational opportunities, and affordable basics so that all people may live with dignity.
 
In October, we need to turn to Matthew 25:35-36 and bring these words to life in our world today.
 

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”
New American Bible
