A Resolution Reaffirming the Society’s Position on the matter of Right to Life
Whereas there still exists a serious concern for the unborn and the principle of the “Right to life for the unborn and the dignity and value of each human life”, and
Whereas lack of respect for the inviolable dignity of every human remains a serious injustice, therefore be it

2. The Society reaffirms its support for both Justice and Peace as well as Right to Life efforts of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.
