Bishop O'Connell calls for prayers to end infanticide

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., has issued the following prayer request:

The U.S. Senate recently failed to pass the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act – legislation that prohibits infanticide by ensuring that a child born alive following an attempted abortion would receive the same degree of care to preserve her or his life and health as would be given to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.

Our two New Jersey senators, Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Robert Menendez, voted against the legislation. Please join us in the Diocese of Trenton in a prayer for an end to infanticide:

 “Jesus, Lord of Life, transform the hearts of all elected leaders to recognize that infanticide is wrong and must not be tolerated. Open hearts and minds to recognize and defend the precious gift of every human life.”
