I call on all people of good will to join us in our efforts. It should be a universal belief on the part of society that each life is precious and is a gift from God. Then, the right to life will be a fundamental human right that will be protected. I firmly believe that if society fails to protect life at its most innocent and vulnerable stage in the womb, then what guarantee is there that life will be respected and protected at any stage?

seek justice, correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”
