Life is an inalienable and fundamental right of every person and for all peoples; and the culture that respects human life, is a human right that must be promoted. Vida Humana Internacional does it through its radio and TV programs.
Vida Humana Internacional and EWTN, Mother Angelica's world catholic TV Channel, have co-produced a series of 13TV programs: "Por Amor a la Vida"

The moral beauty of truth, its benefits, its integrity, and the fact that it never contradicts itself, attracts every human intelligence that is open to it. Fundamental truth concerning human beings consists of his or her image and likeness to God. This makes every human person valuable from the very beginning of each human life, at the moment of conception. VHI announces this fundamental and splendid truth to all.
Message from John Paul II, to the Media:
"An important and serious responsibility belongs to those involved in the mass media, who are called to ensure that the messages which they so effectively transmit will support the culture of life. They need to present noble models of life and make room for instances of people's positive and sometimes heroic love for others. With great respect they should also present positive values of sexuality and human love, and not insist on what defiles and cheapens human dignity. In their interpretation of things, they should refrain from emphasizing anything that suggests or fosters feelings or attitudes of indifference, contempt or rejection in relation to life. With scrupulous concern for factual truth, they are called to combine freedom of information with respect for every person and a profound sense of humanity." (John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 98.)
