Life Matters

ACPeds affirms that human life begins at conception (fertilization) and ends with natural death.

The following resources, including official statements by the American College of Pediatricians, media articles, web links and personal stories, cover issues related to the respect for and protection of human life from the time of conception and serve to reinforce the ACPeds position.

It is our hope that society will place the highest value on human life at all stages.
