Advocacy and Social Justice

The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee pledges its commitment to honor and respect life at all stages from natural conception to natural death.

"It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop. A society lacks solid foundations when, on the one hand, it asserts values such as the dignity of the person, justice and peace, but then, on the other hand, radically acts to the contrary by allowing or tolerating a variety of ways in which human life is devalued and violated, especially where it is weak or marginalized. Only respect for life can be the foundation and guarantee of the most precious and essential goods of society, such as democracy and peace."
- Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae (1995), no. 101
