March 10, 2016 | WEBBIZ The abortion mindset does not discriminate. It says that abortion is needed in every country, for every ethnicity, in any economic class … and at any stage of pregnancy. It wants free reign on the unborn – abortion on demand for any reason. What’s worse is that it is often sold as “freedom.” Whether you’re in Russia, Mexico, Romania or the United States, the abortion mentality shows its eugenic roots – we have the right to decide who is and who is not born based on the circumstances of their conception. This mentality is dangerous and it does not stop at international borders … but neither do the prayers that offer hope against such a cold mentality. Today we see that the abortion mindset wants us to ignore the unborn child – at all costs – but the love of Christ is impossible to ignore!

Day 30 intention That those tempted to abort may understand that their child is already present, and already a real person. Scripture And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” — Luke 1:41-44 Reflection Jesus not only loves unborn children — He was one himself! Think about this for a moment. We often hear people speak of a pregnant mother by saying, “She’s expecting a child.” Now if one is expecting a package, the package is not yet there. As reflected in our verse for today, however, this is not the case with the mother. Her gift is already there. The pregnant woman, a mother already, does not have a child “on the way,” but has a child, already present and in full possession of his or her human rights, starting with the right to life. Prayer Jesus, open my eyes to your presence in the life of every child. Open my heart to joy in the birth of every child, a birth that reflects the joy of your own birth in Bethlehem. As you shared life in the womb of Mary, so now send your protection upon every child still in the womb, and grant to their mothers the strength and joy that comes from welcoming the gift of life. We pray through Christ our Lord, Amen.
