Life and Justice

Catholic Social Teaching (CST) is based on and inseparable from our understanding of human life and human dignity. ... Every person, from the moment of conception to natural death, has inherent dignity and a right to life consistent with that dignity. Human dignity comes from God, not from any human quality or accomplishment.     USCCB
