Respecting All Stages of Life

Human Life and Dignity

For the Church, there is no distinction between defending human life and promoting the dignity of the human person.

            all stages

 The Unborn
"God loves each human life from the instant of his or her conception and entrusts this gift to
the protection of a mother and father.  Abortion ends the life of a child and offends God. 
It also deeply wounds the men and women involved."  USCCB
Human Trafficking
"Creating a world where immigrants, refugees, migrants and people on the move are
treated with dignity, respect welcome and belonging."  Migration and Refugee Services Vision Statement, USCCB

Assisted Suicide
"To live in a manner worthy of our human dignity, and to spend our final days on this
earth in peace and comfort, surrounded by loved ones - that is the hope of each of us.  In
particular, Christian hope sees these final days as a time to prepare for our eternal destiny."  USCCB
War and Peace
"We ask the risen Jesus, who turns death into life, to change hatred into love,
vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace.  Yes, Christ is our peace, and through
him we implore peace for all the world."   Pope Francis, Urbi et Orbi message  3/31/13
Capital Punishment
"The dignity of human life must never be taken away, even in the case of someone
who has done great evil.  Modern society has the means of protecting itself, without
definitively denying criminals the chance to reform."  Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 1995
