Conference of Catholic Bishops

The USCCB Office for Pro Life teaches respect for
all human life and to organize for its protection in the light of The
Gospel of Life, especially on behalf of those who are unborn, disabled,
elderly, dying and unvalued. This is the primary resource for the Bishops’ policy
and teaching statements on pro-life issues.
The Vatican is home to the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, who as the
Roman Pontiff is the perpetual and visible principle and foundation of
unity of both the bishops and of the faithful. It is also the home of
the Magisterium, which is the official teaching authority of the Church. This site provides Papal
documents and other Church teachings, along with both biographies and
homilies of recent popes.
