Abortion

The unborn child is, perhaps, the most defenseless and vulnerable person whose right to life is legally taken away in the United States. Catholic social teaching clearly includes the unborn child as a person whose dignity, because it is a creation of God, is sacred. Our educational programs and our legislative advocacy are based on this principle.

We work towards assisting women in problem pregnancies. We show compassion and forgiveness to women who have had abortions. We work, legislatively, to decrease abortions and to offer alternatives.

Mother Theresa's Message

"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships... It has portrayed the greatest of gifts – a child – as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience."
~Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
