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.

Emergency Contraception, Pseudo-Science, and Media Bias
By Philip Lawler
Here's an interesting case study in news coverage of scientific issues: The New York Times has given prominent attention to a report that "emergency contraceptive" pills may not be abortifacient. Setting aside the merits of the argument, the Times story is significant in itself because it acknowledges the real concerns of pro-lifers that the emergency contraceptives cause abortions. Even the headline refers directly to the controversy: "Abortion Qualms on Morning-After Pill May Be Unfounded."[ Click here to read more. ]
With the focus of part of Planned Parenthood's school sex-ed program being on religion and sexuality, one pro-lifer says the aim is simply to use the Bible to promote an unbiblical agenda. Planned Parenthood of Illinois works within local public schools, it says, "to ensure that students are provided with medically-accurate, age-appropriate, comprehensive sexuality education." Educational sessions cover health topics like reproductive healthcare, contraception, sexually-transmitted diseases, and religion and sexuality. The whole purpose of the latter, according to Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL), is to convince clergy, parents and students that "it's okay with God" to have intimate relations for pleasure and eliminate the pro-creation factor.
Growing army of black pro-lifers targets abortion NewsMax There is a major war going on. Not the one in Afghanistan----the one here to stop the number one killer of Blacks----abortion. On one side the well-funded Goliath army of pro-abortion advocates----Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and scores of others. On the other, the small but growing army of black pro-life organizations. The black pro-life movement is making its voice heard in black communities.
