Benedict XVI meets with the Pontifical Academy for Life in the Vatican

2012-02-27

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

The pope spoke about the suffering experienced by couples with infertility and how to offer them help.

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. Science, nonetheless, is not always capable of responding to the needs of many couples, and so I would like to remind those who are experiencing infertility that their matrimonial vocation is not thereby frustrated”

The Pontifical Academy for Life was created in 1994 by John Paul II. Its first president was Jérôme Lejeune, the man who discovered the chromosome that causes Down Syndrome and is now in the process of beatification. The Academy for Life is comprised of 70 members with expertise in biomedical disciplines and are appointed by the pope.
