Welcome to the Fordham University Respect for Life homepage!
You are great, you are important, you are loved, you are respected, you are alive!
Let us cherish life together!
Respect for Life is a campus organization dedicated to living out the belief that all human life is sacred and must be protected from attacks upon its dignity.
The human person is endangered at all stages of life by various psychological, political and socio-economic ethical ideas. The pre-born are destroyed in their mother’s womb. The embryo is used for experimentation. The aged and infirm are relegated to a forgotten and underserved class. The state freely uses the death penalty, sometimes against the innocent, in the name of its citizens. Our culture is swamped in ideas that devalue the intrinsic value of each person. We must make a choice for life.
As individuals, there is often little we can do to correct these problems; but as a coalition we can be one in the fight for life through service, education and activism. We stand with our brothers and sisters throughout the world, especially in the pro-life movement, to promote the dignity, worth, and equality of human life from conception to natural death.
Respect for Life is open to individuals of all faiths, beliefs and backgrounds. We welcome the involvement of all who are devoted to preserving the dignity of life in all its stages.
