Life Before and After Birth

The affirmation of the sanctity of the life of the unborn should not be equated with the preservation and protection of that life when he or she is born. A rigorous humanistic and Christian philosophy of the dignity of human life, both unborn and born, must entail the active caring and sustaining of the human life, both before and after birth.

If we can create laws and public policies to safeguard the life of the unborn, correspondingly, we should create legislations to improve human life in general and allow it to flourish and grow socially, intellectually, relationally, and economically; likewise, we should be diligent and proactive to make laws to challenge the negative forces and infrastructures (i.e. cultural, political, economic, ideological) in our culture that dehumanize certain lives and demonize human dignity in our society.
