Unborn children are bursting with potential! They are vital, full of energy, hope and promise! So says the Culture of Life.
But the selfish culture of death just doesn’t see it that way. Hence the decades-long struggle for the right to life of defenseless unborn children.
In an address to the Diplomatic Corps at the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI said that “the poorest human beings are unborn children” (1/8/09). He may have been referring to their ‘poverty of (acknowledged) human rights’ which leads to a ‘poverty in human protection’.
In his January 1, 2009 annual Message for The World Day of Peace, Benedict XVI noted: “The extermination of millions of unborn children, in the name of the fight against poverty, actually constitutes the destruction of the poorest of all human beings.”
This is the contradiction of a culture of death: That the human beings with the most potential and promise are the poorest human beings of all because they have not one shred of a human right to cling to!
Mother Teresa saw the situation for what it was: “Unborn children are among the poorest of the poor. They are so close to God.”
The good news then is that God loves every innocent unborn child! As Jesus once explained:
“…do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more they can do…fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Lk 12:4-7
