Ignatian Pro-Life Work

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.


  1. Thank you for saying this. The Bernadin idea of a “seamless garment” and consistent ethic of life is often lost in the fray. Everything from the ability to have basic living conditions, work, education, war, death penalty, healthcare, child care – it is all connected. That is often lost in the shouting for and against. And sadly, this drives many away from understanding the essential need to be involved in pro-life activity.
