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.

DC Protests, June 28, Over Elena Kagan and Republican Silence
'Please Gentlemen - for the Love of God, and the Love of Human Life - Filibuster Kagan; and Leave the Results in the Hands of God.'
Protests on Monday, June 28; details below
WASHINGTON,June 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Randall Terry:
What: Protests Regarding Elena Kagan, and the Duplicity of Senators Graham, McConnell, and Kyl.
When: Monday Morning, June 28, 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon
Where: Dirksen Building, Corner of 1st St. S.E. and C St. S.E.
On Monday, June 28, Pro-lifers from the Washington DC area and beyond will gather at the Dirksen Senate Office Building to draw attention to the cowardice and treachery of Senate Republicans, especially Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, SC Senator Lindsey Graham, and Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl regarding the nomination of a Lena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
They will have a public demonstration from 8 AM. to 12:00 noon, coinciding with the opening of the Judiciary hearings for Kagan's nomination.
Senators McConnell, Graham, and Kyl, have all in turn discussed filibustering Obama Supreme Court picks, but then backed away when it was time to act.
Mr. Randall Terry States:
"These men have used unborn babies as political pawns. They say they are pro-life - and talk a good game on the talk show circuit or in campaigns - but they refuse to fight for the babies when it really matters. They put the 'T' in treachery."
Mr. Terry further states:
"Senator Kyl is a case study in trash-talking and duplicity. Obviously, the record is clear that Elena Kagan will uphold Roe. If Senator Kyl does not have the courage and moral compass to filibuster someone who promotes the wholesale slaughter of the unborn, then he is worse than useless as a 'pro-life senator;' he is a collaborator with the other side.
"Please gentlemen - for the love of God, and the love of human life - filibuster Kagan; and leave the results in the hands of God. If the lives of the innocent are not worth an attempted filibuster, then nothing is."
Times and Locations for Monday, June 28.
Outside Dirksen Senate Office Building, Corner of 1st St.S.E. and C st. S.E. 8 - 12 Noon.
