“Every human no matter how vulnerable or helpless, no matter how young or how old, no matter how healthy, handicapped or sick, no matter how useful or productive for society is a being of inestimable worth created in the image of God. This is the dignity of America, the reason she exists, the condition for her survival, yes, the ultimate test of her greatness; to respect every human person, especially the weakest and most defenseless ones, those as yet unborn.” – Pope John Paul, II
