The creation of life is the source of God's love. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, human life begins in conception.
The following paragraphs 1703, 1711, and 2270 from the stated Catechism define human life as it begins in conception as follows:
1703 Endowed with "a spiritual and immortal" soul, the human person is "the only creature on earth that God has willed for its own sake." From his conception, he is destined for eternal beatitude.
1711 Endowed with a spiritual soul, with intellect and with free will, the human person is from his very conception ordered to God and destined for eternal beatitude. He pursues his perfection in "seeking and loving what is true and good"
2270 Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.
As Catholics, we are to treasure this teaching, truth, and wisdom. Furthermore, our life is to be a witness to this, that life begins at conception. No worldly law can change this or change the teachings of the Church, as this is the law of love, the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Loving our neighbour also includes the baby in the mother’s womb, as life starts from conception. Are we loving the baby in the mother’s womb?
God Bless you and take care,
