TORONTO, October 29, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Toronto and Area Right to Life has distributed pro-life flyers and posters to the Catholic parishes of Toronto with the endorsement and blessing of the Cardinal Archbishop of Toronto, Aloysius Ambrozic. The Cardinal who is likely to retire in January, was quoted in the flyer saying, “Only if we are alive can we live out any other human right.”

The Right to Life Association of Toronto told LifeSiteNews.com they are “delighted” to have received the Cardinal’s blessing for their project. “It is a tremendous privilege to have received his endorsement,” said Natalie Hudson, Executive Director of the Association. “The letter that the Cardinal wrote for the back of the insert was excellent and heart-felt. We see this as a real opportunity to inform the laity on a key moral issue and to work in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Toronto.”

  Hudson told LifeSiteNews.com that many parishes called and asked for more of the posters and pamphlets. In the letter, Cardinal Ambrozic says, “Speaking of unborn children, and of the needs of these children and their mothers, may not always be popular, but we are called to “speak the truth in love.”

Cardinal Ambrozic wrote, “Each one of us is a person with human rights simply because we are human beings. We have these rights not because someone else or an institution or social group wants us, or likes us, or finds us convenient or affordable or acceptable to their aspirations, or wants to give or withhold recognition of us.”

Toronto and Area Right to Life printed 100,000 English inserts as well as some in Italian and French and had requests for Polish and Portugese.  Ph
