CWN Editor's Note: “From the moment of conception, life is sacred, that’s the foundation,” said Bishop Michael Burbidge of Arlington (VA), the chairman of the US bishops’ pro-life committee, as he explained why abortion is the bishops’ preeminent public policy priority.

The prelate made his remarks after the bishops, in a 225-11 vote at their November meaning, affirmed that “the threat of abortion remains our pre-eminent priority because it directly attacks our most vulnerable and voiceless brothers and sisters and destroys more than a million lives per year in our country alone.”
