Can a child conceived by artificial insemination be saved?

I am a single parent and I had my second child through artificial insemination with no husband. I want to become Catholic and I want to know if her soul will be saved?


Every human being is loved by God no matter how they were conceived. Yes, your child has been redeemed and has the same opportunity to reach heaven as those conceived through sexual intercourse. This is true for those conceived outside of wedlock as well.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
