The Right to Live! :)

I am deeply saddened whenever I heard or read news about babies being thrown or left in a garbage, restroom and other places; who have been aborted and those who called unwanted. I mean, who wouldn’t? If you’ll think of what the future holds for these babies, those people who left them will be sorry for the rest of their lives.

Couple of weeks ago, another fetus has been found in a garbage can by a boy in Bacolod City. Authorities said that it was the 7th time that a decomposing fetus has been reported to them in the same area. Some prefer abortion by killing them while they are still developing. What a terrible thing to do!
I always consider babies as angels. They are GOD-given blessing to every human race. It’s just so sad that some of us opted to throw them away or kill them thinking that they can’t be a good steward of such blessings. I don’t’ want to point-finger or blame them because they have their personal reason of doing such nasty things but what I can’t understand is why they did ‘it’ without being responsible for their actions. I guess fear was one of the reasons.

GOD is the author of life. HE is the ONLY ONE who created life and the sole authoritarian to end it. Killing someone’s life especially incapable of defending themselves is a NO-NO.

I found an online prayer for the unborn and surviving babies. It was adapted from Pope John Paul II’s homily of October 7, 1979. Let’s continue to help by praying for them.

Almighty God, our Father,
you who have given us life
and intended us to have it forever,
grant us your blessings.
Enlighten our minds to an awareness
and to a renewed conviction
that all human life is sacred
because it is created
in your image and likeness.
Help us to teach by word
and the example of our lives
that life occupies the first place,
that human life is precious
because it is the gift of God
whose love is infinite.
Give us the strength to defend human life
against every influence
or action that threatens or weakens it,
as well as the strength
to make every life more human
in all its aspects.

Give us the grace…

When the sacredness of life
before birth is attacked,
to stand up and proclaim
that no one ever has the authority
to destroy unborn life.

When a child is described as a burden
or is looked upon only as a means
to satisfy an emotional need,
to stand up
and insist that every child is a unique
and unrepeatable gift of God,
a gift of God
with a right to a loving
and united family.

When the institution of marriage
is abandoned to human selfishness
or reduced to a temporary conditional arrangement
that can easily be terminated,
to stand up and affirm
the indissolubility of the marriage bond.

When the value of the family is threatened
because of social and economic pressure,
to stand up and reaffirm
that the family is necessary
not only for the private good of every person,
but also for the common good of every society,
nation and state.

When freedom is used to dominate the weak,
to squander natural resources and energy,
to deny basic necessities to people,
to stand up and affirm
the demands of justice and social love.

Almighty Father,
give us courage to proclaim the supreme dignity
of all human life and to demand
that society itself give its protection.
We ask this in your name,
through the redemptive act
of your Son and in the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

The smile…laughter…tear and happiness that babies bring are PRICELESS.

This blog entry is dedicated to the unborn baby and those children who are still fighting to live.

May GOD bless us all! To GOD be the glory.
