Abortion -- "the attack on life in the womb" - is the most urgent crisis today, said Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in an interview last week.

A vocal pro-life leader, the San Francisco archbishop spoke with the Catholic News Agency about the devastating passage of pro-abortion Proposition 1 in California and the need to support women and children.

"The most urgent crisis today is the attack on life in the womb, and the lack of support for women who are in need to be able to make a choice for life," Cordileone said.

The archbishop lamented how society has regressed from thinking the killing of unborn babies is a necessary evil to celebrating it as "reproductive freedom."

"You know, it was originally something that people said was a necessary evil, then it became a choice, and then it became health care," he said. "Now they're calling it reproductive freedom, which can mean all kinds of things, and now it's celebrated as a good."
