Day for Life 17 June 2018

UK Church highlights Human Trafficking on the Day for Life- 17 June 2018.

For this year’s Day for Life, the Catholic Church in England and Wales is raising awareness about human trafficking and other forms of modern slavery.

The Day for Life – this year marked June 17 – is dedicated to “raising awareness about the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition.”

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales brought attention to the words of Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exortation Gaudete et Exsultate:

“Our defense of the innocent unborn, for example, needs to be clear, firm and passionate, for at stake is the dignity of a human life, which is always sacred… Equally sacred, however, are the lives of the poor, those already born, the destitute, the abandoned and the underprivileged, the vulnerable infirm and elderly exposed to covert euthanasia, the victims of human trafficking, new forms of slavery, and every form of rejection.” (Gaudete et Exsultate 101)
