Consistent Ethic of Life

Photographic Essay "Stranger Fruit" by John Henry

Photographer John Henry reimagines the Pietà in moving photographs of black mothers and sons in his photo essay, "Stranger Fruit."

From his website:
Stranger Fruit was created in response to the senseless murders of black men across the nation by police violence. Even with smart phones and dash cams recording the actions, more lives get cut short due to unnecessary and excessive violence.

Who is next? Me? My brother? My friends? How do we protect these men?

Catholic Voters Guide for Mid-term Elections

The staff of FAN joined several other Catholic organizations based in DC to develop a voter’s guide for the upcoming mid-term elections in November.  We wish to stress the importance of voting, and to assist members in addressing questions based on Catholic Social Teaching to those running for public office in both parties.  As Franciscans, we support a consistent life ethic which believes in the sanctity of all human life, and that the most effective way to reduce abortion is to address poverty.
