Abstract

The Vatican Instruction on Respect for Human Life in Its Origin and on the Dignity of Procreation,1 in a brief section on public policy, puts a major emphasis on the role of politicians, but it also recognizes the need to develop an appropriate public consensus. It invites not only politicians, but also concerned men and women from many professions, to exercise a positive influence in this regard.
