Argument From Size

When we step on an ant,
An ant smaller than a fetus,
We acknowledge killing an ant.
We may not fret about it,
After-all, it’s an ant!
We have the right
To kill an ant.

When a mother, a doctor,
A nurse, a bio-scientist,
Or technician trained in the art,
When a society and a nation,
Curtails the life of a fetus,
All deny killing a human person.
“It’s too small to matter”,
Do we really believe,
We are doing good?

Do we care beyond
Convenience and profit,
Are we in the right?
Do we have the right?
How big does Truth have to be?

  1. Indeed, how big does Truth have to be? I think of Mary, newly with child, making the journey to see her cousin, Elizabeth. Jesus was just a few cells growing in her womb, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. We reap today our abandonment of true Christianity. And the babies die.

    • In prayer and in the Spirit, we can gather all the little ones and place them with Jesus in the sheltering womb of Mary that they may have the future they missed on earth.
