Father James Martin, SJ quote

A reminder when a politician is called "pro life":

Pro life means reverencing not just the unborn child in the womb,
but also the black person who fears for their life in their own neighborhood,
the inmate on death row, the starving homeless person in our streets,
the migrant family at the border, the LGBTQ teen tempted to suicide
in a rejecting family, the poor family without healthcare in the inner city.

Pro life means pro all lives, not pro some lives.
