WASHINGTON -- Cardinal Bernard Law, Chairman of the Bishops' Committee for Pro-Life Activities, expressed sadness upon learning today that a building in Atlanta housing an abortion clinic was the target of explosives. "Our bishops' conference and all its members have repeatedly, exhaustively and publicly denounced violence as a growing cancer in our society," Cardinal Law said.
"On behalf of all the Catholic bishops in the United States, I strongly denounce today's senseless violence," the Cardinal stated. "Such violence is the opposite of everything we stand for and everything we hope for our culture today: respect for the life of each and every human being from its beginning to its natural end. We pray for those who were injured."
