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.

Coercion v. tolerance: The real crisis in public life
By Jeffrey Mirus
We've been fighting legal abortion with little or no success for a very long generation now, and we've rightly regarded it as a horrific scourge, a massive breakdown of the public order. Perhaps this is why we have been slow to recognize and oppose the sea change that is taking place in American politics right now----the enormous, incalculable shift in government from permitting evil to enforcing it.

[N]early all of today's liberal "comprehensive sex education" curricula----such as that pushed by groups like the National Education Association (NEA), Planned Parenthood and the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)----is derived entirely from the criminally fraudulent research of Alfred Kinsey. But even more troubling is a recent discovery by Dr. Reisman. She found that the Obama administration, which fully embraces the debunked Kinsey sex-education model, has begun pushing a curriculum that, in many ways, eerily mirrors the "FBI Molester Grooming Paradigm." In short, she found that both Obama's HHS and many public sex-education programs are doing to children, constructively, what pedophiles do to "groom" them for sex.
A temporary restraining order was issued in state district court in Austin Friday that prevents the state of Texas [from] taking part in the Women's Health Program. Planned Parenthood was granted the restraining order by District Judge Amy Clark Meachum, who set November 8 as [a] trial date on [the] PP claim [that the] Women's Health Program is invalid under Texas law. This action came after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday declined to reconsider an earlier ruling that would allow Texas to withhold funds for women's healthcare from Planned Parenthood because the organization also performs abortions.
Throughout the Twentieth Century, eugenicists promoted abortion and birth control, claiming that if the "lower classes" would only have fewer children, crime would also decline. This was one of the primary themes of Margaret Sanger's Birth Control Review, in which Montgomery Mulford wrote that "I am of the belief that the acceptance of birth control by society, and its frank teaching, can help diminish criminal activity!" This theme still resonates strongly with many people today.
