Stephen V, Epistle to Arbishop of Mainz, September 14, 887

Human life is sacred - all men must recognize that fact. From its very inception it reveals the creating hand of God. Those who violate His laws not only offend the divine majesty and degrade themselves and humanity, they also sap the vitality of the political community of which they are members.

John Paul II, on Combating Abortion and Euthanasia, May 19, 1991
