Recognizing that they have lost a loved one, I wish to express to Dr. Henry Morgentaler’s family the condolences of the Catholic Bishops of Canada.
Every human life is sacred and deserves our care and protection.
As Catholics, we mourn the loss of each life, in particular of those who die in the womb, and pray to God to be merciful to all who die. May Our Lord help us all to find the best ways to aid those who are suffering and in need.
