* Message Issued for the 26th Human Rights Sunday
 
On the occasion of the 26th Human Rights Sunday on December 9, 2007, the Most Rev. Boniface Choi Ki-san, President of the CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace, issued a message and called on the believers to improve the human rights situation.
 
In the message entitled "Human dignity is the highest value," Bishop Choi stressed, "In our society the dignity of human life is not valued sufficiently, so the poor and vulnerable life is not properly protected," and listed factors compromising the dignity of human life, such as suicides, abortions, research on the cloning of human embryos, and the capital punishment.
 
He also said, "We must strengthen our effort to protect the weaker members and minorities of society and abolish the institutions and practices which discriminate them." He continued, "Given the increasing immigrant workers and inter-cultural families in our society, we should recognize the reality of multi-national and multi-cultural society and amend the laws and institutions which are discriminative or unfavorable to them."
 
"True effort for the reconciliation of the Korean people should include defending the human dignity of the North Korean brethren as well as giving material aid to them. We should struggle to improve the human rights situation and to make the freedom of faith and of missions recognized in North Korea," he added.
 
In addition, considering the 17th presidential election in Korea scheduled for December 19, 2007, he said, "since every democratic citizen has the right and duty to vote, we should elect as the president a candidate who respects human dignity and takes it as the supreme value in making decisions and carrying out the policies,"
