Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

FROM CITIZEN'S FOR A PRO-LIFE SOCIETY:
Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit Officiates at Funeral for Hodari Babies
Felician Sister Clare Klein offers flowers at the grave of the Hodari Babies--buried May 3, 2008 at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Southfield, Michigan--Cemetery Section 71.
On Saturday, May 3, 2008 over three hundred mourners gathered at St. Gerald's Church in Farmington, Michigan for the funeral Mass to pay their respects to 23 victims of abortion killed at the Woman Care abortion clinics in Lathrup Village and Sterling Heights, Michigan--owned and operated by abortionist Alberto Hodari. Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit, John M. Quinn, offered the funeral Mass. Con-celebrants included the chancellor for the Archdiocese of Detroit, Msgr. Robert McClory as well as Father Ronald Browne, pastor of St. Gerald's. The Hodari Babies were retrieved from the trash dumpsters behind two of Hodari's Woman Care clinics located in Lathrup Village and Sterling Heights, Michigan. Pro-lifers, including mmebers of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, retrieved the babies on February 24th and March 2nd 2008--amid bio-hazardous watse and numerous patient records.
Those who live according to the ethics of the culture of death threw these human beings in the trash--after killing them in violent acts of abortion. The human being made in the image and likeness of God had no more value or meaning than the coffee grounds and half eaten McDonald's hamburgers--thrown out in the garbage dumpster. When pro-lifers took them out of the trash they were given back to God the Father who made them--reversing in some small way, the horrific injustice done to them. The babies truly can say: "The reason why the world does not know us--is that it never knew HIM. We are God's children now" (1 John 3: 1-2).
