Little Sisters of the Poor in India
At the service of the elderly Poor
Respect for Life
Life is sacred, which is God’s gift to each human being. From the moment of conception until death an elderly person remains a person with his dignity and uniqueness.
“God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being." (Catechism of the Catholic Church No. 56).
The teachings of the Church continue to guide us - Respect for life, by strongly opposing the introduction of euthanasia. We strive to respond to these needs by progressing in the exercise of hospitality, with respect and attention towards each of the Aged.
At the Home of the Little Sisters of the Poor every elderly person is respected and loved even if that person is in a vegetative state. Palliative care is administered to the sick person. Euthanasia to the elderly Residents in any form cannot be tolerated.
