"If there is a lack of respect
for the right to life and to a natural death, if human conception, gestation and
birth are made artificial, if human embryos are sacrificed to research, the
conscience of society ends up losing the concept of human ecology and, along
with it, that of environmental ecology. It is contradictory to insist that
future generations respect the natural environment when our educational systems
and laws do not help them to respect themselves."
Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate
"America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life." Pope John Paul II
