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.
Message from USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities
Innocent life is under attack like never before. Like St. Joseph, we too need to protect the most vulnerable. Stop your tax dollars from going to abortion. Visit www.NoTaxpayerAbortion.com to take action. Together we are powerful!!
Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service
This information was provided by Joshua Klickman of the Human Life and Dignity Ministry in Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh:
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.
Here in North Carolina, Room At the Inn is a licensed and accredited maternity home that operates housing and programs for single, pregnant women and single mothers with children suffering from homelessness and offering them opportunities to have new lives of healthy, hope-filled independence. Room At The Inn is a Catholic agency and welcomes all people of faith and goodwill to join in serving single, pregnant women and single mothers with children regardless of their economic, social, religious, racial or ethnic backgrounds. Room At The Inn’s comprehensive services extend beyond the birth of the baby to include a college program for moms who wish to complete a degree and aftercare program that provides material needs and other support for former clients.
How can you help? If you know someone who has a need, either personally or can spread the word, please reach out to Annie Ferguson firstname.lastname@example.org.
