You believe ALL life is "sacred".
Whether that life is a fly, cattle, or a serial killer ... it's life is "sacred" and should not be taken by force.

Some extend that "life" to fetuses, or even fertilized eggs.

The sanctity of life means that humanity is more sacred than the rest of creation. Human life is not holy in the same sense that God is holy. Only God is holy in and of Himself. Human life is only holy in the sense of being "set apart" from all other life created by God. Many apply the sanctity of life to issues like abortion and euthanasia, and while it definitely applies to those issues, it applies to much more. The sanctity of life should motivate us to combat all forms of evil and injustice that are perpetuated against human life. Violence, abuse, oppression, human trafficking, and many other evils are also violations of the sanctity of life.

"The sanctity of life means that humanity is more sacred than the rest of creation."

What makes you think humans are superior to animals; in the current age I see almost no difference bettween them. Animals eat, sleep, mate, and enjoy their senses, and humans do the same. The only thing that sets us apart is that humans have an elevated level of intelligence and mental capacity which can be used for good, evil or achiving enlightenment.

The phrase "sanctity of life" reflects the belief that because people are made in God's image (Genesis 1:26), human life has an inherently sacred attribute that should be protected and respected at all times. While God gave humanity the authority to kill and eat other forms of life (Genesis 9:3), the murdering of other human beings is expressly forbidden, with the penalty being death (Genesis 9:6).
