Cardinal Wuerl Blasts Abortion, Political Correctness at Mass for Life after Georgetown Scandal
(LifeSiteNews.com) Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington, blasted abortion, euthanasia, and political correctness at a Mass for Life the day after Georgetown University hosted a lecture from the CEO of Planned Parenthood.

But the Word of God comes to us to say, â€˜do not conform yourself to this age.â€™â€
â€œAt a time when many in society tend to judge a personâ€™s worth on an obscure and subjective â€˜quality of lifeâ€™ scale, we are convinced that human dignity is not based on productivity or usefulness, and dignity is not destroyed during times of hardship or even great suffering,â€ Wuerl said. â€œLife is something we cherish and embrace.â€
