The USCCB proclaims that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift
has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect
and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.
The Life Issues Institute believes the rights of women and the rights of the unborn can be joined. "We must reach out to every woman faced with
the agony of abortion and say to her: Your life and the life of your baby are both important, and we will not desert either
one of you. We want to love you both."
