Louisville, Ky., Apr 17, 2021 / 17:03 pm America/Denver (CNA).
Kentucky pro-life groups responded this week to a billboard campaign in the state seeking to reconcile religious faith with abortion.
The billboards, which will go up next week and remain for two months, feature phrases like, “Good people have abortions” and “Abortion: a personal decision between you and God,” the Sentinel Echo reported. The campaign is being funded by the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.
In a statement sent to CNA, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville stressed that “the Catholic Church has a deep and cherished commitment to give voice to the child in the womb and to support mothers in choosing life for their unborn children.”
“Our commitment to life from conception to natural death extends from our conviction in honoring the dignity of all persons, born and unborn, and we join with individuals of many faiths or no faith at all in upholding the value of human life,” the archbishop said.
He urged “all people of good will to join us in supporting women as they care for themselves and their unborn child and to work together to build a culture of life in our Commonwealth.”
