One Heart Euthanasia, the Death Penalty, and Abortion About This Life Night The Life Night begins with a game in the style of The Price is Right that introduces teens to the idea that different things have different values, but all humans share the same inherent and high value. The Proclaim centers around the topics of euthanasia, the death penalty, and abortion, and explains that all people have the same value, whether they are ill, have committed crimes, or are still in the womb. The Break is a small group discussion about a Nazi named Rudolph Höss that challenges the teen’s understanding of justice and mercy. During the Send, teens pray for those who are affected by euthanasia, the death penalty, and abortion, and are challenged to continue to pray for them throughout the week as a spiritual work of mercy. Goal of This Night The goal of One Heart is to help teens understand the dangers and dehumanizing qualities of euthanasia, the death penalty, and abortion, actions that stop the human heart. Catechism # 2266 - 2279 Scripture Genesis 4:10 -15 Isaiah 50:6 -7 Luke 9:23 Key Concepts – Euthanasia is anti-life because it is demeaning to the human person and denies someone’s opportunity for redemptive suffering. – The death penalty is anti-life because it denies the inherent dignity of all people, even those who have committed great wrongs, and treats grave sinners as irredeemable. – Abortion is anti-life because it destroys a human life in the womb.
