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.

Defending Those Who Defend Life
This past week 19 pro-life Democrats, including Pro-Life Women’s Caucus member Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PA), sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to call for an explicit ban on taxpayer funding for abortion in health care reform legislation.
With a pro-abortion majority in the House and Senate, we need the votes and voices of every pro-life Member of Congress, regardless of party. Their leadership is needed in the debate over health care reform to ensure that our tax dollars do not pay for abortions through government-run health care.
Protecting women and the unborn should not be a partisan issue – it’s a matter of basic human rights. That’s why its so important to support those pro-life leaders who boldly place principle before politics.
