"We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence." U.S. Catholic Bishops, Pastoral Plan for Pro Life Activities.
“Nothing is so important as human life, as the human person. . . . Jesus says that whatever is done to them he takes as done to him. That bloodshed, those deaths are beyond all politics: They touch the very heart of God.” --Archbishop Oscar Romero, Martyr for the Faith
