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.

ALL Pro-Life Today: Incorruptible--Why the Devil Uses Abortion to Eliminate Down Syndrome
The world today demands perfection-so much so that many are willing to murder in the name of it. But perfection is a subjective term that should not be a measure of worthiness or value. This is the case in children with Down syndrome. The miracle of life and the beauty of creation are seen with every child. Sadly, as evidenced by the high abortion rates, many regard children with Down syndrome as broken and not worthy of life. Today's guest commentary shares the bright light these children radiate. After reading, we encourage you to learn more about Kurt Kondrich, his exceptional family and the impact they have made.

The lazy slander of the pro-life cause The Public Discourse One of the most frequently repeated canards of the abortion debate is that pro-lifers really don't care about life. As much as they talk about protecting the unborn, we are told, pro-lifers do nothing to support mothers and infants who are already in the world. Liberal writers such as Matthew Yglesias are given to observing that pro-lifers believe that "life begins at conception and ends at birth." At Commonweal, David Gibson, a journalist who frequently covers the abortion debate, asks how much pro-lifers do for mothers: "I just want to know what realistic steps they are proposing or backing. I'm not sure I'd expect to hear anything from pro-life groups now since there's really been nothing for years."
Bill attacking crisis pregnancy centers in Washington State expected to pass Life Site News Bill introduced Thursday in the Washington State Legislature would enact new regulations targeted against pro-life Crisis Pregnancy Centers in Washington. The bill, HB 1366, requires Centers to state in their facilities, on their web sites, and in all advertisements, that they do not provide abortion services or refer for abortion and exposes the Centers to significant liability concerns. The proposal is one of a series of legislative attacks against Crisis Pregnancy Centers across the country this past year.
World Net Daily A plan that is being pushed now in the state of Colorado by two Democratic lawmakers would allow the government to assume that its residents want to donate their organs or tissue. "The bill changes the organ donation program so that a person is presumed to have consented to organ and tissue donations at the time the person applies for or renews a driver's license or identification card unless the person initials a statement that states that the person does not want to be considered as a possible organ and tissue donor," states the summary of the bill posted online by the state's 68th General Assembly.
'THE PRESENCE IS REAL' VIDEO RELEASED
From the moment of consecration, Christ is truly present in the Holy Eucharist. We do not see Him as we see other people, but He is there, body, blood, soul and divinity. Even though we cannot see Him, He is always with us in the Blessed Sacrament.
