The Four Cardinals: Unambiguously Pro-Life

40 years ago, the Four Cardinals of the United States testified before Congress in a show of conviction and principle that has been one of the clearest expressions of the Church’s teaching on the dignity of human life in our history.  The truth that an unborn child is a human person from the moment of conception was what the Cardinals were fighting for–nothing less was acceptable.

Will we have the courage to follow their lead today?  Or will jurisprudential half-measures or incrementalism be our goal?  In the defense of the innocent and defenseless unborn, we must be unconditionally and unambiguously pro-life.  Let us follow the Cardinals: no exception.

“[U]nless America is prepared to protect unborn human lives, it cannot with confidence guarantee protection to any life. A threat to any innocent life is implicitly a threat to all.”–John Cardinal Cody, Archbishop of Chicago
