'God's Law Trumps Human Laws'

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath...to save life rather than destroy it?

- Mark 3:4

Today's gospel is a powerful teaching on this day for the unborn. Jesus intentionally broke a Jewish Sabbath law in order to heal a man. Healing this man's infirmity trumped the local law.
Today's Christian cannot support or aid actions that would terminate the life of an unborn child, even if the civil law allows it, even if people claim it as their right.
This does not mean, of course, that we can engage in violent actions against others, even in our support of life. Violence against others is not pro-life. Thus, we pray, we seek to persuade, we engage in nonviolent action. We challenge civil laws when they are detrimental to life.
Jesus healed on the Sabbath, despite human laws forbidding it. We, too, recognize that God's law of life is above any human laws that would destroy it.

- Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti
