  • Following the news revealing Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling aborted fetal tissues and organs, Bishop Kopacz released an article in which he wrote about the “darkness of the abortion industry.” Kopacz called Planned Parenthood’s actions a “descent into barbarity” and wrote that “the destruction and selling of the unborn is a very brittle pillar for any claim for a moral vision of society.” Kopacz concluded by affirming that “from the moment of conception, human life is a complex wonder.” (Mississippi Catholic)
