Human Dignity: The Gospel of Life


"Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains forever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end.  God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end:  no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2258).

"Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.  From the first moment of existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2270).

The Catholic Church teaches without compromise that all human life is to be respected and protected, but most especially innocent human life.   Life begins at conception (the first moment of fertilization) and human dignity carries on through the end of life (naturally).
