Election Novena: Life & Bioethics

Life is the most fundamental human good and the condition for all others. Each human life is willed by the Father, and therefore deserves protection from conception until natural death.

But it is no secret that our nation is pervaded by a culture of death. Human life, from the unborn to the elderly and disabled, is devalued, and treated as a disposable commodity when it is deemed “inconvenient” or ceases to be “useful.” A society free from abortion and other forms of violence is a goal towards which elected officials must strive.


Heavenly Father, you created every human life with unrepeatable and inestimable value. May we elect candidates who have a profound reverence for the sanctity of human life, and seek to protect all lives from the moment of conception to a natural death. Amen.

Discernment Questions:

Where does the candidate stand on the need to enact legislative limits on abortion?
Where does the candidate stand on reducing practices that destroy innocent human life, such as assisted suicide, embryonic stem cell research, gun violence, and wars of aggression?
