CWN Editor's Note: The director of the US bishops’ Office of International Justice and Peace foresees an increasing “push for policies that the Church thinks run contrary to the innate human dignity of the human person.”

That effort, he said, “has been growing and becoming less veiled,” and suggests more direct clashes between Church leaders and secular political authorities.
