He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Arm yourself with Light of Truth
Just imagine the joy and celebration of life….
…when we see the headlines: Abortion is once again a crime
in the United States!

As Catholics, we need to stand up for the defenseless and join

and clarity. It will also help us to discuss the issue with others in
a clear and concise manner.
Our goal is not to prove to the world that abortion is evil.
Everyone already knows that, whether they admit it or not. And the
recent atrocities of Planned Parenthood have only highlighted what
everyone knows deep down in their souls.
What we need to do is finally stand as Catholics, united in Faith
in defense of the Family, and use our enormous numbers, our strong
convictions and our tireless efforts to stop every aspect of the
culture of death! And replace it with the Culture of Life!
