Gosnell verdict quote of the day

From Fr. James Martin, SJ:

Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s conviction on murder comes the day after Mother’s Day. Yesterday we honored those women who reverenced the gift of life. Today we read of a man who reviled that same gift, discarding as if it were somehow his to throw away. 

Life and death. Blessing and curse. Our lives are lives of moral choices. Choose life.
