God, the Lord of life...

"God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes." [nefanda sunt crimina]
~ Vatican Council II, Church in the Modern World §51, edited by Austin Flannery, O.P. ~
