Protection of every innocent human life is primary and fundamental. Our parish has a vibrant pro-life ministry whose main focus is to shed light on the distinct value of the unborn person, a truth that is vehemently opposed by our secular society in this culture of death. We love both the baby and the mother: you cannot love one without loving the other, and cannot harm one without harming the other.
Pro-life parishioners weekly provide pro-life information and sidewalk counseling at Planned Parenthood in Boston. We help local pro-life pregnancy care centers. We give pro-life talks at schools and in other forums. We help pro-life candidates seek political office. We coordinate an overnight bus trip to Washington DC each January to participate in the annual March for Life in our Nation’s Capital. We participate annually in 40 Days for Life.
God created human beings in His own image and each of us has a unique dignity. “Of all visible creatures only man is ‘able to know and love his creator’ and he alone is called to share by knowledge and love, in God’s own life. It was for this end that he was created, and this is the fundamental reason for his dignity.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 356)
Since they can’t do it for themselves, we all have a duty to speak out in protection of the unborn.
