The Right to Life


Euthanasia?

Abortion?

Pro-Choice?

Words that are bantered about daily

debated

argued

lobbied

petitioned

without a connection to reality, to real flesh and blood people.

The circle of life

The right to complete

our circle of life in God’s will

in His timing

Is it a miracle that this tiny baby

and this elderly, hospitalized man  are alive?

Their encounter is precious;

even the baby realizes a special moment

The divine spark of life

burns just as brightly

in a young infant and

a bed-ridden elderly man.

Both recognize each other in

their silent communion,

as they look deeply into

each other’s eyes.

  1. It is a shame that in many countries neither of these two are far from having their sacred right to life a negotiable factor; a shame that both abortion and euthanasia are so widely accepted and practiced.
