Dignity of Life

The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. Our belief in the sanctity of human life and the inherent dignity of the human person is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching.

In our society, human life is under direct attack from abortion and assisted suicide. The value of human life is being threatened by increasing use of the death penalty.

We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.

Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service

This year the USCCB Pro-Life Committee has taken the theme “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service.” Pope Francis reminds us that our parishes need to be an “island of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference,” and everyone in the parish should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.
