This essay, for the inaugural issue of the Journal of Christian Legal Thought, invites readers to consider the lessons of Pope John Paul II’s “Evangelium Vitae” for modern lawyers. The essay argues that Pope John Paul’s well known encyclical is both a strong, eloquent defense of vulnerable human life, as well as a call to all those involved in the law to consider the demands of law, conscience, and morality in the public and private spheres.
