(LifeSiteNews) — On this week’s episode of The Bishop Strickland Show, Bishop Joseph Strickland speaks about the many “missed opportunities” among his colleagues to faithfully proclaim the sanctity of unborn life, even after the fall of Roe v. Wade.

“As the bishops of the United States, we missed opportunities to be very clearly proclaiming the truth of the sanctity of life,” Bishop Strickland says. “The first opportunity we had was when President Biden became a candidate.”

“And now that the Supreme Court has spoken, he’s trying to use his executive privilege to once again broaden the availability of abortion. So we keep dropping the ball. We keep missing these opportunities,” he adds.

His Excellency reminds us that although the laws of a nation ought to “reflect the truth,” abortion bans in all 50 states would have limited efficacy if the vast majority of people were “hardened to the truth of the sanctity of life from conception to natural death.”

“We’ve got to change hearts to believe what we teach in the Catholic Church. It’s not just Catholic truth, it’s truth for humanity,” Bishop Strickland says. “And we are in a serious situation where we’re failing to live that truth, and it’s a dire emergency for humanity, not just in this country, but really around the world. But the United States is supposed to be that nation that is a beacon of freedom, and we are failing in many ways, and certainly in the sanctity of life.”
