USCCB renews call for nuclear arms reduction
May 16, 2012
An official of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, joined by representatives of arms control groups and the Union of Concerned Scientists, met with a deputy national security advisor on May 7 and presented him with a petition calling for nuclear arms reduction.
The petition urged President Barack Obama to “end outdated U.S. nuclear war-fighting strategy, dramatically reduce the number of U.S. nuclear weapons and the number of submarines, missiles, and bombers that carry those weapons, and take U.S. nuclear weapons off high alert.”
