Treasuring Life as Sacred

During this week in which we mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I am particularly struck, moved, and challenged by the number of (carelessly) abandoned newborn babies this very same week.

I say "carelessly" because rather being left at designated Safe Havens where mothers would not be subject to prosecution the babies are being left in doorways, garbage cans, and plastic bags.

As pro-lifers we are failing if we solely work to end abortion but don't do more to keep babies safe after they are born.

What kind of outreach could we provide to high schools and obstetrics wards in hospitals to communicate support and concern for mothers overwhelmed by life?
