From the first reading from Deuteronomy 30 at Mass, I heard, "Choose life, then... by loving the Lord, your God." Yes, to choose Jesus is to choose life, as the Lord had made it amply clear.
Then I thought of the pro-choice (meaning pro-abortion, according to the dictionary) people who don't like to be known as being anti-life and don't want to hear that abortion is murder. Surely, to choose abortion is to choose death ~ you can't deny that.
Place the two above-mentioned choices side by side. Remember that Jesus said that for anyone to follow him, he must deny himself and take up his daily cross and also that the greatest love is to lay down your own life for another. Now, try to reconcile these two choices with each other.
