Pope says human dignity important at every stage of life (ANSA) - Vatican City, March 24 - Human dignity is important and must be protected at every stage of life, Pope Francis said Monday during a meeting with health-care professionals.

"At any stage and condition, we must recognize the dignity and value of each human being, from conception to death," the pope said during the opening of a health conference.

It is important, he added, to recognize that "the experience of fraternal sharing with those suffering opens us to the true beauty of human life, including its fragility".
