Welcome | Respect for Life


If you'd like to join our mailing list, please click here.

Respect for Life is a campus organization at Rose Hill which is dedicated to the belief that all human life, independent of its state of physiological development, is sacred and must be protected from any attack upon its dignity.

The dignity and self-worth of the human person is endangered at all stages by various physical, social, and psychological threats. However, the life of the pre-born infant is threatened now more than ever.  The increased availability of abortions to women has escalated the number of abortions.  The pre-born are no longer guaranteed life.  This presents a grave moral, social, and political problem for those who respect life at all stages.

As individuals, there is little any of us can do to correct these problems; but as a coalition of like-minded individuals, dedicated to fair solutions to these problems, we can educate many people to the reality of the intrinsic value of all human life, and act on these principals, beginning with the pre-born.

Respect for Life promotes the fundamental dignity, worth, and equality of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
