Sanctity of Life

Sanctity of Life

Human life at all ages and stages is precious. It’s the belief that all life, from the moment of conception is sacred and, therefore has the right to live. It is inestimably precious. The sanctity of life means that humanity is more sacred than the rest of creation. However, it is a concept that one believes in. It is, in other words, a moral conviction. A moral conviction about how human beings are to be perceived and treated. Belief in the sanctity of life prescribes a certain way of looking at the world, in particular its human inhabitants. This perception then leads to behavioral implications related to how human beings are to be treated. Moral conviction leads to perception and flows into behavior.
Rightly understood, the sanctity of life is among the broadest and most inclusive understandings possible of our moral obligations to other human beings.
