It deals with issues pertaining to the sanctity of human life , including murder, abortion , euthanasia , and capital punishment , reaffirming the Church's stances on said issues in a way generally considered consistent with previous Church teachings. Beginning with an overview of threats to human life both past and present, the encyclical gives a brief history of the many Biblical prohibitions against killing and how this relates to the concept of a culture of life. The encyclical then addresses specific actions in light of these passages, including abortion quoting Tertullian , who called abortion "anticipated murder to prevent someone from being born" , euthanasia which John Paul II calls "a disturbing perversion of mercy" , and the death penalty. The encyclical then addresses social and ecological factors, stressing the importance of a society which is built around the family rather than a wish to improve efficiency, and emphasizing the duty to care for the poor and the sick. The encyclical also deals with the proper uses of sex and the implementation of knowledge on adolescent teens of these behaviors.

Padre J. Daniel Mindling, O. La dignidad humana es un don no merecido, no es un estatus ganado. La dignidad en la vida surge de sus fuentes. La dignidad del hombre no tiene precio. No fuimos rescatados de nuestra vana conducta con oro y plata, sino con la preciosa sangre de Cristo Pedro 1: La dignidad de la vida es clara por nuestro llamado. El plan de Dios para los seres humanos es que sean "hechos conformes a la imagen de su Hijo" Romanos La Iglesia es un defensor paciente, que trabaja para conseguir cuidados apropiados para los enfermos y los moribundos promoviendo el respeto por su dignidad.

Aunque un paciente pida un suicidio asistido, sigue siendo una "injusticia inexcusable". Las personas no son vegetales. Esto es simple y llanamente falso. Hay que ser cauteloso aun en el caso del EVP. Estos cuidados, por principio, son cuidados ordinarios y proporcionados y son moralmente obligatorios. No se puede resumir su catequesis sin acudir a nuestra Madre quien supo permanecer en vigilia al pie de la cruz con su Hijo.

El Papa Juan Pablo II: La Muerte con Dignidad

The Gospel of life is at the heart of Jesus' message. Lovingly received day after day by the Church, it is to be preached with dauntless fidelity as "good news" to the people of every age and culture. At the dawn of salvation, it is the Birth of a Child which is proclaimed as joyful news: "I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord" Lk The source of this "great joy" is the Birth of the Saviour; but Christmas also reveals the full meaning of every human birth, and the joy which accompanies the Birth of the Messiah is thus seen to be the foundation and fulfilment of joy at every child born into the world cf. Jn When he presents the heart of his redemptive mission, Jesus says: "I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly" Jn In truth, he is referring to that "new" and "eternal" life which consists in communion with the Father, to which every person is freely called in the Son by the power of the Sanctifying Spirit.
