"How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love." - BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA

Prayer for an End to Infanticide

While efforts are underway to move this legislation forward, what is also greatly needed is an effort of prayer and awareness. Please consider sharing the attached “Prayer for an end to Infanticide”

It is designed to be placed in the parish bulletin, or other communications. A link is also provided to determine how each senator voted on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The simple prayer template (English and Spanish) accommodates prayers for particular senators who voted against the ban on infanticide. A more generic option of the prayer is also available.


Prayer for an End to Infanticide

Suggested Bulletin Insert

The U.S. Senate recently failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act—legislation that prohibits infanticide by ensuring that a child born alive following an attempted abortion would receive the same degree of care to preserve her or his life and health as would be given to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. Please join us in prayer for an end to infanticide:

“Jesus, Lord of Life, transform the hearts of our elected leaders to recognize that infanticide is wrong and must not be tolerated. We especially pray for our Senator(s) __________ (and __________). Open his/her/their heart(s) and mind(s) to recognize and defend the precious gift of every human life.”

Or (if your senators supported the prohibition on infanticide):

“Jesus, Lord of Life, transform the hearts of all elected leaders to recognize that infanticide is wrong and must not be tolerated. Open hearts and minds to recognize and defend the precious gift of every human life.”

Oración para ponerle fin al infanticidio

Sugerencia de volante para boletines

 

El Senado de Estados Unidos recientemente no adoptó la Ley Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection [Ley de Protección a Sobrevivientes de Abortos Nacidos Vivos], legislación que prohíbe el infanticidio al asegurar que un niño que haya nacido vivo después de un intento de aborto reciba el mismo grado de atención para preservar su vida y salud que cualquier otro niño que nazca vivo a la misma edad gestacional. Recemos juntos para pedir el fin del infanticidio:

“Jesús, Señor de la Vida, transforma el corazón de nuestros dirigentes electos para que reconozcan que el infanticidio está mal y no debe tolerarse. Rezamos especialmente por nuestro(s) Senador(es) __________ (y __________). Te pedimos que abras su corazón y su mente para que reconozcan y defiendan el don preciado de cada vida humana”.

O (si sus senadores apoyaron la prohibición sobre infanticidio):

“Jesús, Señor de la Vida, transforma el corazón de todos los dirigentes electos para que reconozcan que el infanticidio está mal y no debe tolerarse. Te pedimos que abras los corazones y mentes para que reconozcan y defiendan el don preciado de cada vida humana”.
