CWN Editor's Note: The prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF) has disclosed that a document on human dignity is nearly complete and will soon be made public.

Cardinal Victor Fernandez said that “the text is almost finished and will be published in early April.” He said that the document will cover moral questions including “sex-change surgery, surrogacy, and gender ideology.”

According to a report in the French journal La Croix, a DDF draft on human dignity had been in preparation for several years, but Cardinal Fernandez “completely revised it,” on the suggestion of Pope Francis, when he became head of the DDF last September.
