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: "Oppose Taxpayer Funding of Abortion"
Most Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. Yet as legislative history and court decisions demonstrate, unless abortion coverage is explicitly prohibited, it will be included in health care reform. Moreover, considering abortion as a part of essential health services will result in the expansion of abortion killing centers all around the nation.
The research of the Alan Guttmacher Institute proves that when abortion funding is excluded, some 30% of women whose abortions would have been covered choose life instead.
As we lobby Congress to exclude abortion, let's also pray that health care reform in this nation will respect life, and not expand the killing. Go to http://www.facebook.com/l/;PrayerCampaign.org to download a special prayer for this purpose and to sign up for the campaign.
