Pope Pius XI “Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority … to defend the lives of the innocent … among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother’s womb. And if the public magistrates … do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors and others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cries from earth to heaven” (Casti Connubii No. 67).
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen To help stop abortion in America and the world, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. This is done by praying a ten second prayer that an unborn baby’s life be spared abortion and be allowed to live.
The prayer is:
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen.
