“Before I Formed You in the Womb I Knew You”

A Pastoral Letter on the Human Dignity of the Unborn, Holy Communion, and Catholics in Public Life by the Most Reverend Salvatore Joseph Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco.

The Biggest Lie Yet!

Dear Friends for Life,

Think of a little unborn child fighting for life in its mother’s womb. A beautiful scene of God’s creation- the growing process. Then consider the biggest lie to hit the news in the previous presidential race. Hillary Clinton stating publicly that babies are people but don’t have human rights.
