Today is Respect Life Sunday

The papal visit of Pope Francis revealed his pro-life stance which seemed quite similar to the late Cardinal Bernadin who was “pro-life across the board.” Pope Francis’ great respect for life is based on his recognition of the dignity of each individual. If each of us recognized the dignity of each individual, we would be “pro-life across the board.” Being pro-life embraces a multiplicity of issues: abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, war, poverty, homelessness, all forms of violence, suicide, a just wage, good treatment of animals, refraining from substance abuse, avoiding pornography, etc. Most of us probably have to work at becoming pro-life across the board. One can question if one is pro-life if one assumes a pro-life stance only on certain issues. Hopefully, in the areas and issues where we are not pro-life, we may work at becoming pro-life.
