The Respect Life Ministry hopes to build a Culture of Life where every human being is valued and protected from the moment of conception until natural death. This involves educating the parish community on a wide rage of life issues including Abortion, Post-abortion Healing, Euthanasia, Chastity Education, Embryonic Stem Cell Research, Human Cloning, Capital Punishment, Ethical Vaccines, Fertility Issues and Artificial Contraception.
"In our present social context, marked by a dramatic struggle between the "culture of life" and the "culture of death", there is a need to develop a deep critical sense, capable o descerning true values and authentic needs. What is urgently called for is a general mobilization of consciences and united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life. All together, we must build a new culture of life."
-Blessed John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, no. 95
