By Thomas Wenski

Even though our newspapers are never lacking in bad news to report about murders, killings, violence and hate, most of the innocents who die in our world die in anonymity and silence, unreported and un-mourned, except for their mothers' sometimes belated remorse.

The screams of these innocents are silent screams: I speak of the silent holocaust of millions of children killed in procured abortions - some 60 million in this country alone since the ill-fated Roe v. Wade decision. Worldwide, abortion today is the leading cause of death.

Legalized abortion has coarsened our regard for human life in all its stages - as utilitarian criteria are increasingly used to grant "value" or to decree "no value" to human beings. As Saint Pope Paul VI warned in Humanae Vitae 50 years ago, a "contraceptive mentality" which views fertility as a disease to be treated, has eroded the foundations of the family by weakening marriage and destroying the mutual trust between men and women which is the necessary cement that holds together any committed relationship. Abortion, rather than protecting the rights of women to their bodies, protects the rights of men to the bodies of women.

The slippery slope that pro-life leaders warned against has arrived. Euthanasia, so-called therapeutic embryonic stem cell research, cloning, all have demonstrated that Roe v. Wade reveals itself as the fault line of our culture which threatens the future of our democracy. Indeed, the reason why our politics are so contested today, and partisan divisions run so deep can be laid at the feet of Roe v. Wade. We see this on display whenever there is a Supreme Court nominee to be voted on in the U.S. Senate. In the Jan. 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the Supreme Court basically usurped the role of the Legislature and, in an exercise of raw judicial power, imposed across our nation the most permissive abortion regime in the Western World.

The annual January March for Life takes place this year on Jan. 18. Held every year in Washington, D.C., with 100,000-plus mostly young people braving rain, snow or sleet, gives lie to the assertion by some pro-abortion advocates (including editorial writers) that the permissive abortion regime ushered in by Roe v. Wade is "settled law." Yet, the hope of pro-lifers that originalist justices will overturn Roe v. Wade will not totally end abortion, but it would return lawmaking to state legislatures which are increasingly pro-life.

Our nation is increasingly rejecting abortion and Roe v. Wade as states continue to adopt more limitations on abortion and expand alternatives to abortion. But, in Florida, courts invoked the right to privacy in our state constitution to block a good law requiring a 24-hour reflection period prior to abortion. The court's broad interpretation of our state's privacy clause stems from a Florida Supreme Court ruling in 1989 against a law requiring parental consent prior to a minor's abortion and poses unique challenges regarding abortion laws in Florida. So, even if Roe v Wade were overturned, the State of Florida could retain permissive abortion policies.

There is, in a word, much work still to be done (and prayers to be offered) to assure that every unborn child is welcomed in life and protected by law.

Thomas Wenski is the fourth Archbishop of Miami. He was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.

Hope has a name... Jesus.

Hope has a name: Jesus. To put our faith in Jesus means we must put it into action through charity. Our archdiocesan programs and ministries effect change, share the love of Christ, and bring hope to people in need. In the words of Pope Benedict, "A world without God is a world without hope. A world without God is a world without a future."

Once a year, we commit ourselves to the ongoing work of the Archdiocese of Miami by supporting the ABCD. Next week, every parish in the Archdiocese will unite to ask our Catholic community to support this year's annual appeal by making a gift.

Please consider making a donation, whether by responding to the Archbishop's letter, making a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org or turning in your pledge envelope at the Church. Individually, we can change our own life, but together, we can change the world. United, let us be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.

Life is God's gift to us, and what we do with it is our gift to God.

La Esperanza tiene un nombre... Jesús.

La Esperanza tiene un nombre: Jesús. Poner nuestra fe en Jesús significa que debemos ponerlo en acción a través de la caridad. Nuestros programas y ministerios de la Arquidiócesis cambian de efecto, comparten el amor de Cristo, y traen esperanza a las personas necesitadas. En palabras del Papa Benedicto, "un mundo sin Dios es un mundo sin esperanza. Un mundo sin Dios es un mundo sin futuro ".

Una vez al año, nos comprometemos con el trabajo en curso de la Arquidiócesis de Miami apoyando al ABCD. La semana que viene, cada parroquia de la Arquidiócesis se unirá para pedirle a nuestra comunidad católica que apoye la Apelación Anual este año haciendo un regalo en forma de un compromiso.

Por favor considere hacer una donación, ya sea respondiendo a la carta del arzobispo, haciendo un regalo en la web en www.isupportabcd.org o entregando su sobre de compromiso en la iglesia. Individualmente, podemos cambiar nuestra propia vida, pero juntos, podemos cambiar el mundo. Unidos, seamos Uno en la fe, uno en la esperanza y otro en la caridad.

La vida es el regalo de Dios para nosotros, y lo que hacemos con él es nuestro regalo a Dios.
