March for Life 2012

"We are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the "culture of death" and the "culture of life." We find ourselves not only "faced with" but necessarily "in the midst of" this conflict : we are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life." (#28) 
Truly great must be the value of human life if the Son of God has taken it up and made it the instrument of the salvation of all humanity! (#33) 
The Gospel of Life is both a great gift of God and an exacting task for humanity....In giving life to man, God demands that he love, respect and promote life. (#52) 

The deepest element of God’s commandment to protect human life is the requirement to show reverence and love for every person and the life of every person. (#41)
