Life begins at conception! 👶
The Catholic Church has a longstanding position on the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
In addition to the tradition and scriptural basis for this position, various documents and encyclicals recite what the Catholic Church teaches on the issue.
Here are four powerful quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church on the issue of abxrtion:
“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his 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)
“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abxrtion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abxrtion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2271).
“The inalienable right to life of every innocent human individual is a constitutive element of a civil society and its legislation…” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2273)
“Every human life, from the moment of conception until death, is sacred because the human person has been willed for its own sake in the image and likeness of the living and holy God.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church,2319)
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that You have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all, through Christ our Lord.
