Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia says that, 43 years after the tragic U.S. Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade, there is reason for hope for the pro-life movement.Archbishop Chaput made his comments at the 2016 Celebrate Life Banquet sponsored by the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund. The Federation is the Keystone State affiliate of National Right to Life.’We have every reason to hope,’ Archbishop Chaput told the crowd of more than 500, which included both veteran pro-lifers and members of the Millennial generation, gathered at the Radisson Hotel in Harrisburg on Sept. 29.’Over the past 43 years, the pro-life movement has been written off as defeated and finished too many times to count. Yet here you are tonight again, disappointing your critics and refusing to die. And why is that?’It’s because no court decision, no law and no political lobby can ever change the truth about when human life begins and the sanctity that God attached to each and every human person, born or unborn,’ Archbishop Chaput said.
