Sanctity of Human Life – the belief that human life is sacred or special because it is a gift from God
(Pronounced sank-tuh-tee (of human life))
Her hopes sank when everyone said she was a nonentity (sanctity), even after she'd explained how in her human life she was sacred and special.
One of the most important teachings of Judaism is that all life is special and belongs to God.
People often refer to this as the sanctity of life.
Jewish people believe that God is the Creator of all life and that only He should say when life begins or ends.
Followers of Judaism therefore believe they must do everything possible to preserve life.
