Culture of Life

Sister Patricia McCann

Creation of the “culture of life” to which Catholics aspire rests upon belief in the sacred dignity of all human life, born and unborn. Such belief mandates a broad spectrum of life affirming actions which support women/families in bearing and raising children: affordable pre-natal /post-natal maternity care, available and affordable childcare, affordable housing with a family focus, accessible health care, education and employment opportunity for everyone. Belief in the sacred dignity of life brings everyone into the embrace — old and young, well and ill, people of every race, LGBTQ and straight — God made and loves us all.  

Promoting life cannot be reduced to a single issue. It depends upon integration of the entire range of life affirming actions and policies. [Cf. John Paul II, Evangelium vitae, 1995, paragraph 3]
