WASHINGTON, DC – Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann praised pro-life advocates for fighting for the “most important human rights issue of our time” Monday during the national Diocesan Pro-Life Leadership Conference.

The Catholic Herald reports Naumann encouraged pro-life church leaders not to give up, despite their struggles against an aggressive and emboldened pro-abortion movement.

“This is a moment of great opportunity as well as a moment of great peril for our culture and society,” Naumann said.

The archbishop of Kansas City, Kansas, Naumann also serves as the chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities. On Aug. 5, he spoke to 85 pro-life ministry directors from across the country, the report states.

He thanked pro-life leaders for building “a culture of life in this particular moment in time when the church is wounded by the clerical sexual abuse scandal; at a time of pro-life promise with the current composition of the U.S. Supreme Court; and a time when supporters of legalized abortion are incredibly motivated and energized.” ….
