On the 39th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in remembrance of theÂ 51 million children lost to abortion . . .
“Along with the work of advocacy, and the importance of our vote, in the struggle to secure the rights of the unborn I urge us all to embrace the truth of what it means to be human in our own lives.Â Never forget, we have been made by love, for love. In your families — strive for compassion and for mercy.Â In your neighborhoods — look for ways in which you can reach out to the most needy in your midst.Â In your workplace — be an example of patience and reconciliation.Â As I have stated before, it is not simply a pro-birth culture we are called upon to develop as leaders and advocates. Rather, we must work to build up a truly pro-life culture, a culture that is rooted in an authentic understanding of human freedom and the meaning of life.”
