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.
After American Life League exposed the fact that, in 2009, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) had granted money to 51 organizations that promoted abortion, birth control, and homosexuality, CCHD was forced by the bishops to conduct an internal review and adopt a new set of guidelines so that this sort of funding would come to an end. However, in 2010, after the review and new guidelines came into effect, ALL researchers discovered that nothing had changed and, in fact, the funding problems were worse. But the real question lies in a single guideline, which the CCHD adamantly refuses to address-and it has to do with grantee membership on coalitions.
The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts (KSBHA) has ordered the revocation of the medical license of abortionist Ann Kristin Neuhaus, stating that Neuhaus' practice of essentially rubber-stamping late-term abortion referrals to George Tiller was "professionally incompetent" and constituted "unprofessional conduct." The eleven counts against Neuhaus were based on eleven patient records involving girls between the ages of 10-18 who received post-viability abortions in 2003 at Tiller's now closed abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas.
Recently Facebook apologized for censoring a post by Dr. Rebecca Gomperts in which she gave instructions for a do-it-yourself chemical abortion. The popular social media site decided it was okay for the international abortion provider to teach women and girls how to do an abortion themselves at home using Misoprostol, even telling them to lie to a pharmacist to get the necessary drugs. But now Facebook has removed a graphic that shows the aftermath of an abortion: An eight-week fetus torn limb from limb and decapitated.
When Ryan Marquiss was born with his heart outside of his body, doctors didn't expect him to survive. It is an incredibly rare condition and usually babies are stillborn or die within three days. His heart also hadn't developed and so he only had half a heart - a combination of defects which is so rare that Ryan is the only one of his kind in the world. Doctors advised his devastated parents to terminate the pregnancy when his mother was just 12 weeks pregnant, but they bravely refused. And it is a gamble that has paid off, as Ryan is just about to celebrate his third birthday.
