But it doesn't mean that. The unborn are mentioned once a year, on the anniversary or the Sunday closest to the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. That's it. Forget about any of the other non-negotiables.
Injustice is when you deny someone something that is theirs by right. All sin is injustice.
As an example, adultery is injustice because it deprives a spouse of fidelity, which is his or hers by right. Murder and abortion are injustice because it deprives a person of life which is theirs by right. And so forth.
Some believe that social justice can be segregated from issues of personal morality, but they cannot. They are inexorably linked. There is no social justice without personal morality and there is no personal morality without social justice. Justice and morality rise and fall together. When you pray for peace and justice, you are praying that killing stops and that people be given what is theirs by right, including the right to life from conception to natural death. When you pray for peace and justice, you are therefor praying for an end to abortion, and end to the death penalty, an end to euthanasia, an end to adultery, and an end to any other sin which deprives someone of something which is theirs by right.
A world which is perfectly just would have no sin because we would render to God what is God's by right, perfect trust, obedience and faithfulness. A world that is perfectly just would never have violence against anyone, including and especially the unborn. When you pray for justice, you pray for an end to sin.
