Whatever you did for one of these did for me.

Today, as we mark the solemn occasion of the legalization of abortion, let us pray for the more than 47 million children who have been killed in the name of choice. Let us pray, for the mothers and fathers who chose to kill their children. Let us pray for the doctors and nurses who killed these children. Let us pray for those who may be considering an abortion this very minute.
When the most innocent among us is not safe, no one is safe. As civilized human beings we must work tirelessly to put an end to abortion. As I watched the March for Life on EWTN I was filled with so much hope. That is what we need to be offering to young mothers with no where to turn. You don't need to go to Washington DC to march or work full time at a crisis pregnancy center to make a difference. Go to Americans on Call and find out how you can help. So many women turn to abortion because they feel alone with no one to help them. If a woman came to you and said she was pregnant and was considering abortion what would you do? We must be willing at all times to offer unlimited love and support when confronted with such a woman. She has more than likely been rebuked by her boyfriend or husband, maybe even her family, or posibly she is too terrified to even speak to them. Maybe they are all presurring her to kill her unborn child; she feels as if she has no choice. If she comes to you, will you be ready? We must always be ready to welcome Jesus when we see him in the unwed mother.
Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 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.'Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?' And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Matthew 25:34-40

Being pro-life is not a part time position. Be open to life at all stages and use your vote and your wallet to advance the pro-life cause. Be unpopular when the topic comes up among family and friends if you have to be. Carry the phone number of a local crisis pregnancy center in your coat pocket at all times. Make sure your elderly or handicapped relatives don't sign medical waivers that give doctors the right to withhold care. Support abstinence NOT 'safe' sex. Become an NFP or Creighton teacher. You can fit being pro-life into your busy lifestyle.
We will win the battle against abortion and we will climb back up the slippery slope it has sent our society down.

"Cowardice asks the question, 'is it safe?'; expediency asks the question, 'is it politic?'; vanity asks the question, 'is it popular?'; but conscience asks the question, 'is it right?'; and there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but because conscience tells one it is right."
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
