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.

PRI Follows Up Overpopulation Cartoon with Second in Series
This short cartoon is the sequel to the cartoon released in the middle of last year
This second video follows up on the first installment in the series, available here. This latest video, just over two minutes long, deftly refutes the common misconception that world population is exploding, demonstrating how fertility rates all over the world are shrinking. "No one who views this video will ever be taken in by the myth of overpopulation again," says Steven Mosher, PRI's president. "The videos also have an accompanying web site: www.overpopulationisamyth.com, which presents the facts behind the video in a little more detail," says PRI's Joseph Powell, who developed the project and did most of the animating. "This site, while factual, still remains accessible, with links to scientific sources." "We're very excited about this site," explains Joel Bockrath, PRI's Vice President for Operations. "All of our science is backed up by credible sources and downloadable. We think this could be a valuable resource for students and teachers especially, who may feel alone defending a sometimes unpopular position."
