      USCCB offers resources for Respect LIfe Month: Begun in 1972, the Respect Life Program stresses the value and dignity of human life. It is observed in Catholic dioceses throughout the United States. In addition to new prayers and other resources, the 2014-15 Respect Life Program features six articles highlighting the respect due to each person as a “masterpiece of God’s creation.” A variety of topics is treated: adoption, miscarriage, healing within marriage after an abortion, advance medical directives, the treatment of children as commodities, and the connection between poverty and abortion. Cardinal O'Malley's full statement is available in English and Spanish along with many other program resources at www.usccb.org/respectlife. A short video featuring Pope Francis’ warm gestures to the “weakest and most vulnerable” is on YouTube: http://youtu.be/h62l-4OddI0?list=PLpTzvCOJa7DBsXu19BJ8EbwTF5Xi7Vyt7
