The Conference encourages House members to keep the needs of the poor and vulnerable foremost in mind. "The basic moral test for our society is how we treat the most vulnerable in our midst. This preferential option for the poor and vulnerable includes all who are marginalized in our nation and beyond—unborn children, persons hungry, homeless or unemployed, the elderly, persons in need of health care, persons with disabilities, persons in need of quality education, immigrants and refugees, and persons who are victims of injustice and oppression."
