‘Building a Culture of Life in a Post-Roe World’: USCCB issues Respect Life Month statement
September 22, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: The three-page statement written for Respect Life Month (October) (story and PDF text) has four sections: “An Answer to Prayer,” “Shifting the Paradigm to ‘Radical Solidarity,’” “Speaking and Living the Truth with Compassion,” and “A New Politics.”
“Almost 50 years after Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court has finally returned to the American people the authority to govern ourselves on the matter of abortion,” said Archbishop William Lori, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities. He called on Catholics to “build a better future—a future in which the new hallmarks of our society will be solidarity, compassion, reconciliation, and a new unity as a nation ... Accordingly, we must live and act in radical solidarity with mothers, children, and families in need.”
