While we are disappointed that Measure 1 failed at the polls, we are optimistic that society will, one day, value and protect life decisions at every level, from conception to natural death. Every pro-life law in North Dakota continues to be at risk. Our society, increasingly steeped in a culture of death, doesn’t really have a good answer to the swelling tide of social acceptance for keeping these decisions in the hands of the judicial system. This will never change until we accept that it is ultimately God’s choice.
We as Catholics will continue to lead the conversation about the dignity of every human being and our moral duty to protect life at every age and at every stage. We may not have won this battle, but we will continue our momentum as fervent soldiers in the war to protect pro-life laws and decisions.
