Respect Life Month Statement
(October 2020)

“This past January, I shared with Pope Francis that the bishops of the United States had been criticized by some for identifying the protection of the unborn as a preeminent priority. The Holy Father expressed his support for our efforts observing that if we fail to protect life, no other rights matter."

Archbishop Naumann, Chairman

USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities
