Children truly are the family's greatest treasure...

“Children truly are the family's greatest treasure and most precious good. Consequently, everyone must be helped to become aware of the intrinsic evil of the crime of abortion. In attacking human life in its very first stages, it is also an aggression against society itself. Politicians and legislators, therefore, as servants of the common good, are duty bound to defend the fundamental right to life, the fruit of God’s love.”
~ Pope Benedict XVI, Address at a Meeting on Family and Life Issues in Latin America, December 3, 2005 ~

Euthanasia is a false solution...

“Euthanasia is a false solution to the drama of suffering, a solution that is not worthy of man. The real answer cannot be, in fact, to give death, as 'gentle' as this may be, but to testify to the love that helps us to face pain and agony in a humane way”.
~ Pope Benedict XVI, Audience & Angelus, February 1, 2009 ~
