Human Dignity and Solidarity

Our Mission

Who We Are

Through the vehicles of the four pillars for pro-life efforts in America, and as set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and as prescribed in Saint John Paul II’s Encyclical Evangelium Vitae, the Archdiocese of Chicago Respect Life Ministry seeks to transform society into a Culture of Life where every human being is valued and protected, from the moment of conception to natural death. We educate and inspire people throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago to understand the truth about why and how we are created in God’s image of love, especially according to the teachings found in Saint Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.
