Respect Life Month is Opportunity for Catholics to Join in "Radical Solidarity" with Pregnant Mothers

As we approach the start of Respect Life Month in the Catholic Church, Archbishop William Lori, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, is inviting Catholics to “practice radical solidarity and unconditional love” for pregnant and parenting mothers.

After the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Archbishop Lori says, “it is the time for a renewal and rededication of our efforts to build a culture of life and civilization of love.” Lori asks Catholics to “shift the paradigm to what Saint Pope John Paul II described as ‘radical solidarity,’ making the good of others our own good, including especially mothers, babies (born and unborn), and families throughout the entire human lifespan.” Finally, he reminds Catholics that the Church “understands that parents, children, and families need help not just during pregnancy, but throughout the whole of life’s journey because millions of Catholics already accompany their neighbors in such circumstances.”
