What is nature and dignity? Every human life has dignity simply because of its very existence, from conception until natural death.

And so we must protect life in all its stages.  No abortion, no suicide, no denying ordinary care.  Not even if the person chooses.

We must respect all life.  Let us not conclude that some lives have less worth, or that we and others should not live if health declines.   Let us love life more, not less! How can we help each other endure our sufferings rather than eliminate lives altogether.  Death will come without our help, but can life?

Motherhood, medical practice, and teaching have all given me perspectives that I will write about in this blog.  My Catholic faith, too, forms my outlook, though much of what I write can be discussed without that framework.  And yet I hope to inspire some to consider that as well.
