An Open Letter from Catholic Spouses to their Unborn Children
Dear beloved children in the womb,
Mommy and Daddy are writing you this letter to explain an important decision. Your Mommy was feeling bad, so she asked a very smart doctor to help her. He gave her a special pill. I know you will be happy to learn that the pill made Mommy feel better.
We are sorry to tell this next part. The special pill caused you to die, before being born. Mommy and Daddy didn’t want you to die. But the only way we could keep you from dying would be to give up the special pill that makes Mommy feel better, or give up a special kind of hug that makes Mommy and Daddy both feel better.
We want you to know that you are very important to us, and we love you very much. But we would rather let you die before being born than give up the things that make us feel good.
Don’t worry, little ones! We know you will be welcomed into Heaven by God, where you will be happy forever. Unfortunately, we will never meet you, since we are on the road to a different place.
Mommy and Daddy
