Sanctity of Life Ministry

The Catholic Church believes that human life is sacred, and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral society. Through educational campaigns and prayer, our Sanctity of Life ministry works for the protection of all human life from conception to natural death.

Our Mission is to preserve, protect and promote the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death. We specifically work for the protection of the unborn from abortion, the sick and the elderly from euthanasia, and imprisoned from capital punishment.

"Abortion is profoundly anti-woman. Three quarters of its victims are women: half the babies and all of the mothers."

—St. Teresa of Calcutta
