Cardinal Law Was Known For His Pro-Life Work


Cardinal Bernard Law, the former archbishop of Boston, died in Rome on Wednesday

Even the Boston Globe has acknowledged, after his resignation, Law devoted considerable energy to the pro-life movement, as part of his work against the culture of death. In 1984, during his first appearance at Boston's Cathedral of the Holy Cross, the Globe said “he called abortion a ‘national disgrace’ and the ‘primordial evil of our time, the cloud that shrouds the conscience of our world.’ A year later, he referred to abortion as “the critical issue of the moment” and criticized US Representative Geraldine Ferraro, the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984, for her support of abortion rights.”

He appeared annually at the March for Life in Washington, DC, and the Respect Life March in Boston, as well as heading a bishops' committee on abortion issues.
