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.

NY Times WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is raising serious objections to a new Indiana law that cuts off state and federal money for Planned Parenthood clinics providing health care to low-income women on Medicaid. The objections set the stage for a clash between the White House and Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Republican, over an issue that ignites passions in both parties. The changes in Indiana are subject to federal review and approval, and administration officials have made it clear they will not approve the changes in the form adopted by the state.
City officials have approved a conditional use permit for Planned Parenthood to operate a clinic at 2980 El Camino after months of deliberation and several protests from community members. Planned Parenthood will be able to provide adequate parking and access to the facility, the primary concerns with the application, according to city spokesperson Malcolm Smith. In reviewing the clinic's application, the city was not reviewing the city's services, but other issues such as whether the site was compatible with surrounding land uses and compliant with city regulations. The city deemed that Planned Parenthood could adequately meet these requirements and could move forward with construction.
Gallup's 2011 Values and Beliefs survey, conducted May 5-8, finds a bit more public agreement about the morality of abortion. Just over half of Americans, 51%, believe abortion is "morally wrong," while 39% say it is "morally acceptable." Americans' views on this have been fairly steady since 2002, except for 2006, when they were evenly divided.
