Life Issues

Pelosi's feud with archbishop escalates.

Bishops respond to House Speaker Pelosi's misrepresentation of Church teaching against abortion.

"As the Catechism and early Church documents make clear, abortion is always an evil. That is an unchanging teaching. The question on when the soul enters the body was a philosophical question that grew out of a lack of scientific data at the time of St. Augustine. We have the data today which shows the embryo is human. There no longer is any discussion of whether the unborn is human and so the philosophical discussion of St. Augustine’s time is not relevant today." - Washington Archbishop Donald Wuerl
