(Washington, DC) Archbishop Paul S. Coakley of Oklahoma City, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, and Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, issued the following statement in response to the federal executions scheduled this week:
As Catholics, we are called to respect the dignity of all human life—regardless of the harm one has suffered or caused. While CMN remains steadfast in its mission to end the death penalty and promote restorative justice, we recognize that we cannot simply stand by when experiencing COVID-19 behind bars could, for some, mean a de facto death sentence.
Attending the March for Life? (Or know someone who is?) Carry this sign with you to affirm your commitment to upholding the dignity of ALL human life.
