The hallmark of the pro-life movement is the abundant love we show toward women who have suffered the tragedy and trauma of abortion

It is possible to adhere to any religious tradition, or indeed to have no religious affiliation at all, and yet to espouse the belief that the life of the unborn is sacred. This is because the sacredness of life is a universal principle that is written on the human heart.

Today, Catholics commemorate the Feast of the Holy Innocents. This event is recalled in the Holy Scripture, where it is recorded that Herod ordered the slaughter of infant boys. As stated in the second chapter of the Gospel According to Matthew, Herod became enraged upon realizing that he had been deceived by the Magi.

He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its environs, two years old and under,

according to the time he had learned from the Magi.

Then was fulfilled what was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet:

A voice was heard in Ramah,

Sobbing and loud lamentation;

Rachel weeping for her children,

and would not be consoled,

for they were no more.

This is undoubtedly one of the most distressing days in the Catholic Church’s calendar. The contemplation of the senseless slaughter of the innocent evokes a profound emotional distress.

It is impossible not to consider the mothers who have lost children to abortion. It is evident that the depth of their sorrow is profound, given that they will never witness their children flourish and mature. As committed advocates for the value of life, it is our responsibility to provide support and guidance to those who have experienced the loss of a child through abortion.

Indeed, it can be argued that this is a defining characteristic of the pro-life movement: the abundant love and support that we extend to women who have experienced the tragedy and trauma of abortion. It is evident that they have been victimised by an abortion industry that has failed to acknowledge their pain. In response, we stand in solidarity with them.

As we commemorate the victims of violence, let us also offer prayers for those who have been left behind, particularly the many mothers and fathers who have lost their children.
