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.

The Cover-Up of Abortion's Real Risks
Today's guest commentary is the first of two parts on the subject of the risks of abortion. These are risks that are discounted by those who advocate abortion. Yet, as you will see in this text, evidence exists to the contrary. Read on for further information.
Life Site News On its Facebook page [yesterday], Planned Parenthood posted a New York Timesop-ed written by a young man reflecting, as he takes his girlfriend Sam to buy the abortifacient hormone bomb known as the morning-after pill, upon his long fight to overcome his solid moral upbringing.

One important way to silence and surmount the protestations of one's conscience and to have premarital sex, one friend told the author, is to stop treating your partner like a human being with value equal to your own.

In the wake of the release of increased population projections by the United Nations Population Fund last week, predicting the birth of the world's 7 billionth baby in late October of this year, calls for measures to control the world's population have surged.

UNFPA has released plans for activities to "underline the significance of this population milestone."
