Why Men Are Also Responsible for Abortion

Bobby Angel makes it clear that men are just as responsible for abortion as women are. Men are responsible for protecting woman from circumstances that lead to abortion. As Pope St. John Paul II said: “The task of every man is the dignity of every woman.” 

Men have failed tremendously in upholding the dignity of women. The decision to stay out of the decision-making process when a child is conceived is not a choice but a lack of a choice. Adam was guilty of the same inaction when he was given charge of the Garden of Eden and charged to protect Eve. When Eve was tempted by the serpent, Adam did nothing. 

“To say nothing is to allow this evil [of abortion] to happen,” says Bobby.  Men can be the voice for the voiceless by standing their ground when the thought of abortion comes up, and saying “This is wrong.”

Men should do all that is within their power to prevent the ending of the lives of children in the womb. Prayer is one of the most useful ways to do just that. Bobby invites you to pray this prayer from ProjectRachel.com:

“Eternal Father, source of all mercy and love, out of love for us you sent your son and willed that blood and water flow from his side to cleanse us from sin and restore lost innocence. Hear the cry of each woman and man who mourns the loss of his or her child to abortion. Forgive this sin. Restore us to your grace and still the terror in our hearts with a peace beyond all understanding. Through the intercession of the blessed Virgin Mary, mother of all tenderness and our mother, strengthen our faith in you. Give us the consolation to believe that this child is now living with th Lord. We ask this through Christ our Lord, who conquered sin and death,, and who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, on God forever and ever. Amen.”
