Loving our Unborn Neighbors

To love one’s neighbor “as oneself” means to love the neighbor as a person like oneself…to recognize, in other words, that despite any differences the neighbor may have, he/she is a person who never loses his/her human dignity and human rights. So it is with our relationship with the unborn child. Recognizing that child as a person like ourselves is the foundation of extending our love to them and our efforts to protect them. The love of God cannot co-exist with indifference toward the slaughter of the unborn.
