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.

Family In America Title X officially expired in 1985, yet Congress has continued to appropriate money for the program every year since, including $317 million in 2010, bringing the total amount of federal expenditures for the program since 1970 to an inflation-adjusted $12.4 billion. ...
