The true moral test of society is how the weakest and most vulnerable members are treated. If we do not protect the inalienable right to life of the unborn, the human family will make little progress dealing with the death penalty, poverty, euthanasia and other attacks on human life and dignity.
Health Care Priorities
As a basic human right necessary for a healthy and just society, we support ensuring accessible, quality health care for all. Our health delivery system must be rooted in values that respect life, acknowledge human dignity and respond to the needs of the poor and vulnerable.
The Church supports the rights of parents to select the schools they deem best suited for their children, especially the poor and disabled, to receive federal and state services necessary to achieve academically and socially.
Family and Social Concerns Priorities
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live. Human dignity is first recognized and understood within the context of the family. All persons have certain basic rights, and society has a moral obligation to ensure no one is denied that which is necessary to live with dignity.
