Respect Life / Consistent Ethic of Life

respectlifeSt. Thomas the Apostle’s Respect Life Committee follows the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life activities, based on the “4 P’s” of Public Education, Pastoral Care, Public Policy, and Prayer/worship. The emphasis of the St. Thomas the Apostle committee is on the development of a “consistent ethic of life” from conception to natural death, so many issues such as capital punishment, abortion, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research are addressed. The committee also engages in letter writing or telephone campaigns and visual displays on special issues. New committee members are always welcome.
