One Choice The Dignity of the Human Person One Choice begins with a Gather in which teens create string art. The Proclaim explains that the dignity of the human person flows from God’s creative action and that an authentic pro-life attitude is a consistent choice. Then, teens break into small groups in which they will brainstorm ways they can be more consistently pro-life in their homes, schools, and communities, as well as commit to two of their ideas. Since loving ourselves is a prerequisite for loving others, the Life Night ends with a Scriptural reflection on how much we are loved. Goal of This Night The goal of One Choice is to help teens understand their, and every person’s, inherent worth, and encourage them to conform their hearts to God’s heart, enabling their words and actions to reflect the dignity of the human person.

He chose to make us like His very self. In fact, when God created us, He called us “very good.” – People not only have the right to life, but also, a right to life to the fullest. Social injustices, anger, hatred, and apathy are also a violation of human dignity and of a consistent pro-life attitude.
