Fighting against the evil of abortion can sometimes feel futile or tempt a person to despair, but here are ten good things to remember about the unborn, even if they are aborted.
One, unborn children have souls created by God immediately out of nothing. Although the body can be dismembered, burned, or thrown out as landfill, the soul cannot be divided, changed, or destroyed. Two, their souls are everlasting because God wants them to be happy with Him forever. Three, we can ask those souls to pray for an end to the greed and violence that sent them, as innocent and unwanted victims, away from this world.
Four, we should not worry about limbo. We are not a people of presumption; we are a people of prayer, faith, and hope. If we are blessed to be with God for all eternity, we can have certain faith that in His infinite wisdom, mercy, and love there is absolutely no chance that we will find anything unhappy, unjust, or unloving in Heaven.
Five, like all children, each unborn child killed by abortion has a guardian angel, part of a vast army of good and powerful spirits doing God’s work. Six, we can ask these angels to fight the demons that surround abortion clinics, to illuminate the minds of confused mothers, and to open the eyes of the people who kill children for profit.
Seven, like all women, the mothers who are led to abortion by the lies and temptations of demons also have guardian angels. Eight, we can ask our guardian angels to assist the guardian angels of desperate women wherever they are, to guide and inspire them, even if it is too late to save the life of the unborn child. We can pray for the souls of all the mothers who ever have, or ever will, abort their children, for we pray to an all-merciful, all-powerful, all-loving God who holds everything in existence and can forgive the greatest of sins.
Nine, we can fight against this evil anytime and anywhere with prayer. We can ask all the angels, saints, and our Our Lady, the Queen of Angels and Saints, to pray that God the Father will rebuke this evil, that Jesus Christ who is God the Son Incarnate will lead all souls to Heaven especially those in most need of His mercy, and that God the Holy Spirit will open the hearts and minds of the lost so that they may behold all that is good, beautiful, and true. If we knew what a single prayer can do, maybe we would pray without ceasing. Ten, we are on the side that already wins, that cannot lose, that will be victorious. We, adopted and faithful children of God Almighty, can never forget that.
“For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore, take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day and to stand in all things perfect.” Ephesians 6:12-13
