All human persons possess equal human dignity that is intrinsic and inviolable. This dignity, present from conception to natural death, is the foundation of every human right.
The family is the foundational group unit of society, where individuals are equipped to fulfill their social obligations. The political community at the local, national and international level is obliged to protect and nurture the family.
The authentic development of society occurs in a culture that fosters integral human development-–characterized by physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional growth.
