Life. God gives everyone this amazing, precious gift.

But the last thirty plus years have seen life under relentless, corrosive attacks in our media, our courts, legislatures, and schools.

Life Issues are at the very heart of our civilization. Modern science and modern social trends make these issues complex. How can we tell right from wrong in the news and on the ballot?

America's founding document, The Declaration of Independence, proclaims that each human being is endowed by the Creator with the inalienable Right to Life. Yet each day, our laws allow four thousand unborn human lives to be aborted.

Even more lives are sacrificed in glass dishes, in the hope of medical advances.

In some countries, doctors now have license to kill if they judge a patient's life not worth living. Will this become the American way?

What happened to America's right to life? Did the Creator change his mind?

Christ's Church has had a single, clear understanding of the human's right to life for two thousand years. We of the Catholic Diocese of Reno's Respect Life Commission present it to you here for your consideration.

Empowered with this knowledge, you will have a choice. Will you be part of the solution upon which all our lives depend?

The membes of the Diocese of Reno's Respect Life Commission welcome you.

It's not necessary to destroy human life by "embroyonic stem cell research" to gain the benefits of 'pluripotent' stem cells-- highly adaptable stem cells. A new technology is emerging utilizing "induced pluripotent stem cells," genetically identical to patients and generated without killing human embryos.
