The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has elected Archbishop Joseph Naumann of the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas as Chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Pro-Life Activities.
Dating back to his days in St. Louis, Archbishop Joseph Naumann has long been a friend to the right-to-life movement. He has been an outspoken pro-life leader in the public square. His election to head the USCCB's pro-life efforts speaks to the importance the bishops place on keeping the life issues at the forefront of our national dialogue. We can be sure that Archbishop Naumann will serve as a tremendous and powerful voice on behalf of the unborn and their mothers, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.
Archbishop Naumann defeated a candidate who espouses the "seamless garment" version of "pro-life".
This is wonderful news!
