Benedict XVI
“I greet and thank you for the generous service in defense and in favor of life.”

Benedict XVI
“The Church is attentive to the suffering of infertile couples, and her concern for them is what leads her to encourage medical research.

The Academy for Life is comprised of 70 members with expertise in biomedical disciplines and are appointed by the pope.
