Archbishop Chaput’s Column: Respect Life 2017

 

In his most recent column Archbishop Chaput writes, “American Catholics mark October each year as ‘Respect Life Month.’ Reverence for the sanctity of the human person starts with a defense of the unborn child. The right to life is foundational. Without it, all other rights and all other discussions of justice and human dignity are built on sand. No other issue or collection of issues can eclipse the priority of the fundamental right to life from conception to natural death.

 

But being ‘prolife’ involves a great deal more than working to end obvious evils like abortion and euthanasia. The poor, the infirm, the disabled and the strangers among us also have a claim on our discipleship.”
