America you are beautiful…and blessed. The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenceless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.
~ Pope John Paul II
No issue has the primacy or the urgency of the abortion issue because only the killing of unborn children has been legalized by the government, sanctioned by the medical profession, and defended by church bodies.
~Jean Staker Carton
Man cannot be reduced to his genetic and biological components, which certainly also form a part of his personal dignity. Every person who comes into the world is called from eternity to participate in Christ, through the Spirit, in the fullness of life in God. That is why, from the mysterious instant of his conception, he must be accepted and treated as a person created in the image and likeness of God himself.
~Pope John Paul II
All who are genuinely committed to the advancement of women can and must offer a woman or a girl who is pregnant, frightened, and alone a better alternative than the destruction of her own unborn child.
~Mary Ann Glendon,
Fourth World Conference on Women,
Beijing, September 5, 1995
The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government.
~ Thomas Jefferson
