Dignity: The life and dignity of the human person
All persons possess intrinsic value simply from the mere fact that they exist as beings having a divine origin. All humans possess moral inviolability such that they ought never be exploited or treated simply as means to ulterior ends or goals. The dignity of human beings means that women and men have inalienable rights that must be respected and sustained. The test of every institution or policy is whether it enhances or threatens human life and human dignity.
