September 15 & 16
NOVENA FOR THE LEGAL PROTECTION OF HUMAN LIFE:
The U.S. Bishops urge our participation each Friday in a nationwide Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life. On Friday, September 21, pray and learn about Roe v. Wade. Join at www.usccb.org/pray!
May a change in the U.S. Supreme Court move our nation closer to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.
Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be
Abortion stops a beating heart.
Abortion Advocates usually refer to the human being growing in her/his mother’s womb in dehumanizing terms like “product of conception” and suggest that most abortions are done before fetal organs are functioning. Actually, the vast majority are done after the fetal heart has begun beating. A baby’s heart begins to beat at about 21 or 22 days after fertilization. That’s at about 3 weeks of development. The vast majority of abortions in the United States are done well after this point.
