Life and Human Dignity

“It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop…. Only respect for life can be the foundation and guarantee of the most precious and essential goods of society, such as democracy and peace.”

- Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae
