CWN Editor's Note: Responding to “people in public life who distort the Catholic Church’s teaching”—a likely reference to President Biden—the chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities affirmed that “the Church seeks the protection of all unborn children; this includes the innocent child conceived in rape or incest.”

Citing Pope St. John Paul II’s encyclical Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life, n. 73), Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore said that “whereas the Church always seeks the protection of all unborn children, it is licit to support legislation that falls short of this goal, if it advances protections and limits harm.”

“In the post-Roe world, we must act in radical solidarity with the pregnant woman and her child, as we work and pray for the day when abortion is unthinkable,” Archbishop Lori added.
