Sunday, the 5th of October, was Respect Life Sunday in the American Roman Churches and the Church engages in Pro Life activities all month.
At the following link, the Bishop of Scranton has posted his sermon which I forward as a matter of interest to those inclined to read it.
We must recognize that Respect for Life was an issue from the earliest days. Romans and Greeks used abortion and "exposure" to rid themselves of unwanted children. The Christian Church was counter culture, and not only refused to follow these norms, but gathered up those children so exposed and raised them up as Christians (instead of slaves as was the custom). For further historical study I commend this excellent survey of the Early Church's stance against abortion and infanticide by Michael Gorman, http://incommunion.org/?p=193 : Abortion and the Early Church
