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.

Expert testimony before school board points out folly of PP sex ed
By Rita Diller, Wednesday STOPP Report
The road to victory is paved with many battles. When articulate community members come forward to speak out against Planned Parenthood at every corner, it is a victory in the making. That was the case in Portland, Oregon, on December 3 when the school board entertained comments on the topic of Planned Parenthood's Teen Outreach Program (TOP) in the public schools. The abortion giant is using taxpayer dollars to train the teachers and provide the curriculum, which includes after-school excursions with the Planned Parenthood teachers. If you are fighting Planned Parenthood in your school, or plan to, we highly suggest listening to the testimony presented here.
Giving birth can be a blur but a Valley couple took a picture that brings it into crystal clarity. The image of their baby reaching out of her mother's womb to hold the finger of the doctor performing a C-section has gone viral. The little baby's name is Nevaeh - Heaven spelled backward. Even the hospital staff told her parents there's something almost spiritual about the picture of Nevaeh holding the doctor's finger before technically being born.
The ultrasound tech squirts gel on her belly, the expectant mom looks at the beating heart on the flickering screen, and a dozen friends and family members huddle in for a closer look -- drinks in hand. Welcome to the new frontier in pregnancy oversharing: the ultrasound party. Good luck selecting the right gift. Thanks to improved ultrasound technology, parents-to-be can now invite friends and family to share in an intimate viewing of baby in utero.
Scientific American termed the research findings another way: "Scientists discover children's cells living in mothers' brains." But I wanted to drive home a touching point: Mothers who terminate their pregnancies apparently don't completely rid themselves of their babies. The cells of murdered children live on inside their mothers to help - or perhaps - hurt them: "Cells may migrate through the placenta between the mother and the fetus, taking up residence in many organs of the body including the lung, thyroid muscle, liver, heart, kidney and skin. These may have a broad range of impacts, from tissue repair and cancer prevention to sparking immune disorders."
