John Paul the Great on the Sanctity of Life #2

I do not hesitate to proclaim before you and before the world that all human life--from the moment of conception and through all subsequent stages--is sacred, because human life is created in the image and likeness of God. Nothing surpasses the greatness or dignity of a human person. Human life is not just an idea or an abstraction; human life is the concrete reality of a being that lives, that acts, that grows and develops; human life is the concrete reality of a being that is capable of love, and of service to humanity...

Human life is precious because it is the gift of a God whose love is infinite; and when God gives life, it is forever.
Homily, Capitol Mall, Washington, DC, 1979
