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.

Most see abortion as merely an issue to be debated, yet they fail to recognize that the life of a human being hangs in the balance of this debate. Today's commentary addresses this and tells us what we need to do to help people understand what is really at stake. [ Click here to read more. ]
Mississippi's last abortion facility received notice on Friday that the state health department intends to revoke its license. If the clinic closes, that would make Mississippi the first state without a single abortion clinic.

However, it may remain open until the board completes its final hearings. The process could take a month.
February 1, 2013, will mark the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization's 44th Image Awards Show to honor cultural and entertainment luminaries presenting the best face of black Americans. However, this year a number of black groups, churches and community activists along with the National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPLC) will be protesting the event due to the failure of the civil rights organization to represent the best interests of the community. The issues range from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men. Protesters from across the nation will assemble in Los Angeles to declare that the NAACP has betrayed the black community.
In October of 2012, scientists in Oregon announced they had created a dozen human embryos with the genetic material from two women and one man. While these embryos never made it to a womb, these researchers are hopeful that they will be given federal approval to, as USA Today reports, "test the procedure in women." This, of course, means transferring these genetically modified embryos to mothers willing to gestate them. A few weeks later, in December 2012, scientists from New York proclaimed they have improved upon the technique that created these three-parent embryos and are intent on further developing their breakthrough for use in humans.
