To respect life means to honor life as sacred from the moment of conception until natural death - whether a human person's body consists of only two cells, or whether it is sick and suffering in old age. Respect Life programs within the Diocese of Sacramento carry this message forward with love and compassion.
Pro-Life activities range from education about Natural Family Planning and chastity to comprehensive weekend retreats for healing after abortion. We also offer resources and work closely with the California Catholic Conference to provide resources and support for all pro-life issues relevant to the dignity and rights of all people.
