Remembering Vulnerable Mothers This Mother’s Day Weekend

By Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation

I stopped in my local grocery store and found a vibrantly colorful display of balloons, roses, and carnations, signaling the start of this weekend’s Mother’s Day celebrations.

Some of us who are mothers will celebrate with bouquets and brunches, cookouts and candy. Hugs and kisses from the children who delivered motherhood to us will remind us of the tremendous gift we have received in birthing and nurturing our offspring.

But, perhaps before the festivities are in full bloom, could you take a moment with me to offer up a special intercessory prayer? Pray for those pregnant mothers who, on the eve of Mother’s Day weekend, are about to enter abortion centers.

Pray that the better angels of their nature prevail. Pray that a spirit of hope will overcome a spirit of fear. Pray that someone of influence in their life will say something reassuring that will help them to see their way clear.

Pray that they have a change of mind and choose life. And pray that they will have all the support that they and their children need now and in the future.
