We need to see abortion not just as somebody else’s sin but our sin. Even if we have never participated in an abortion, we must ask forgiveness for it. It is easy to blame abortion on those who do it and support it. But we must blame ourselves as well. This is spiritual dynamic that has to undergird all of our other activities to abolish abortion. First and foremost we are called to repent, to take responsibility for the innocent blood that has been shed, and then to intervene to save the helpless.
--Fr. Frank Pavone, Abolishing Abortion
