To quote the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, " The founders of our country declared that each human being has certain inalienable rights that the government must protect. It is no accident that they named life before liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Life itself is a basic human good, the condition for enjoying all the other goods on this earth. Therefore the right to life is the most basic human right. Other valued rights -- the right to vote, to freedom of speech, or to equal protectoin under the law -- lose their foundation if life itself can be destroyed with impunity." We are charged with the individual responsibility to defend the right to life from craddle to grave, as we meet our responsibility to share with the world God's Gospel of Life.
