Excellent USCCB pro-life teaching

A couple of days ago, I linked to a roundup of responses from US Bishops to the nonsense from Nancy Pelosi about medieval theories of animation and their supposed relevance to the abortion debate.

Now the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued a statement: Respect for Unborn Human Life: The Church’s Constant Teaching. The old chestnut about St Thomas Aquinas and the infusion of the soul is often raised in the UK too: the USCCB statement is a model response. You might even say that it was "passionate and courageous", daring to "speak the truth in love" as opposed to "safe and flat".

It is also available as a pdf.
