I am for peace, but when I speak they are for war — Psalm 120
Abortion is a loaded issue on the lips of everyone these days. Once, when I was very young, I supported someone in the process. My heart broke for her when she asked the lifelong Catholic for a ride to the appointment. The helper in me couldn’t say no. That urge got me in a lot of trouble back then. What is a friend if not an associate in trying times, I thought foolishly. I’ve since learned my lesson. I wrote this piece as penance for my part. May God have mercy on our souls.
