As Catholics and Christians, we are not just pro-life. We cannot just be pro-life. To say we are such indicates that we are simply in favor of promoting life, that we “indicate favor for some party, system, or idea” (dictionary.com), in this case, that we indicate favor for life.
We do not merely wish to promote life. No, our primary responsibility, the task we have been entrusted with as Christians, is to love every life.
And if we’re going to do this effectively, if we’re truly going to love every single life, we absolutely cannot omit Mary from the equation. Mary is vital to creating a culture of life. Why?
