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.

Fr. Pavone: President Obama Does Not Share the Pope's Belief in the Dignity of All People
STATEN ISLAND, NY,June 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today reacted to White House press secretary Robert Gibbs' statement that President Obama and Pope Benedict have a "shared belief in the dignity of all people."
Fr. Pavone stated, "They do not. President Obama believes in the dignity of most people, but not all. We call on the President to clearly state that children should be protected by law before birth, not just after."
