Forty-five years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Roe v. Wade case legalized the abortion of unborn children in our country. Since that date an estimated 58 million abortions have been committed in just the United States.
Respect for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb is under attack in other areas too. In 2012 Massachusetts voters narrowly defeated a ballot question that would have legalized euthanasia. Legislation proposing the legalization of this practice is due for possible consideration in the Massachusetts Legislature this year.
The Holy Redeemer Pro-Life group has the role of educating the parish and the wider community on respect for life issues not only abortion and euthanasia but capital punishment, social issues such as hunger and other quality of life issues.
