Lord Jesus Christ, You took our human nature upon Yourself. You shared our life and death, our childhood and adulthood. You also shared our time in the womb. Lord, we ask You to bless and protect the children who today are in their mothers' womb. Save them from the danger of abortion. Give their mothers the grace to see the inherent worth of their children. Help all people to recognize in the unborn child a brother, a sister, saved by You, our Redeemer in the womb. Amen.
