U.S. Catholic Congress of Bishops, USCCB, Life Issues Forum: Helping Men Be Fathers
By recognizing the unique role of fathers, we more effectively highlight the humanity of the unborn child. We also affirm marriage—what St. John Paul II called the “sanctuary of life” —that more effectively welcomes children into the world. And we bear witness to the crucial role of a father in raising children. Consideration of the father’s role is important to pro-life efforts.
