The Ignatian Pro-Life Network was among the many groups that took part in the annual March for Life in Washington yesterday, the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision. It’s an occasion to remember the fine document Standing for the Unborn issued by the Jesuit Conference.
It says, “Jesuits ought to find their place among those who demonstrate the obvious confluence of women’s rights and respect for life in all its forms.”
To be pro-life is to be pro-woman. Because we support women, we oppose abortion. We realize that the prevalence of abortion on demand is a clear indication that women are not receiving the types of societal and personal support necessary to bring their pregnancies to term.
