The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (www.usccb.org) in their Dec. 2016 document “PRO-LIFE? DO THIS EASY THING IN 2017” explains being pro-life is about cherishing and protecting each person at every stage and every circumstance. Pope Francis warns against casting aside people as though their lives are not worth living. The USCCB is offering a 9-Day for Life digital novena/pilgrimage Jan. 21-29.
