CWN Editor's Note: “For the nation’s bishops, the continued injustice of abortion remains the ‘preeminent priority,’” said Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, citing the bishops’ statement on faithful citizenship. “Preeminent does not mean ‘only.’ We have deep concerns about many threats to human life and dignity in our society. But as Pope Francis teaches, we cannot stay silent when nearly a million unborn lives are being cast aside in our country year after year through abortion.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
