To teenagers who attended the ‘March for Life’: What would St. Matthew do?

San Francesco della Vigna (Venice) - Pulpito di destro - San Matteo apostolo di Francesco Montemezzano

Matthew 7:1-5 

7 1  Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Should I presume that I am morally superior to you?
Should I doubt your ability to make decisions in good conscience?
Should I presume that your feelings are invalid?
Should I presume to know better than you what is best for you?
Should I be allowed to force you to do something that is bad for your mental health?
Should I expect the laws of the land to force everybody to comply with my opinion?
If I should not, why should you?
