Our Logo

ACT Right to Life’s logo is based on the two ideas of a circle and DNA. The circle represents the circle of life from conception through to birth, adulthood and death. The DNA strands represent a constant throughout that circle of life and are present in all the people who are the subjects of debates on life issues, from reproductive technology to abortion to euthanasia.
