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.

Hiding Behind Hyde
Through the long struggle between the cultures of life and death, the Hyde Amendment has been propped up by both sides as the real field of battle. Many pro-life politicians speak with great aplomb about the need to codify Hyde into law because it supposedly bans the use of federal funds for abortion, while pro-abortion politicians shriek that Hyde deprives women of their "right to an abortion." The fact of the matter is that Hyde does neither of these things, and does almost nothing but offer a smokescreen for the real problem.
Above all else, the Hyde Amendment does allow federal funds to pay for abortions because it has exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother written into it. So, anyone who claims that it is illegal to use federal funds to pay for abortion because of Hyde is either lying or ignorant.
Visit the website, read the background information and sign the petition Mercy Regional Medical Center is a Catholic Hospital located in Durango Colorado and was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1882. Mercy's longest serving physician is Doctor Richard Grossman. Grossman is a man who for years has had the luxury of making a living at a Catholic Hospital in the field of Obstetrics/Gynecology, delivering hundreds of babies over the course of his long career. However, as a result of his presence in the Four Corners region of Colorado thousands of babies have also been murdered by Grossman at Planned Parenthood, where he works one day a week as an abortionist.
One News Now A bill banning the sale and use of body parts of aborted babies is being offered before the Wisconsin legislature. Currently federal law prohibits the interstate trafficking of human fetal body parts. Peggy Hamill of Pro-Life Wisconsin [an American Life League Associate group] tells OneNewsNow they support Wisconsin's bill. Peggy Hamill "Wisconsin's intrastate commercial activity must have similar prohibitions so that we can guarantee that the highest ethical standards at our academic research facilities will be followed and that the medical care in our state will be of an ethical standard," she argues.
