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.

When I was 19 weeks pregnant, an ultrasound of my baby revealed markers for a condition called trisomy 18. We were offered amniocentesis, which we refused because we didn't want to risk hurting our baby. We were told we would have more choices if we knew for sure. We said we would never abort our baby, but would love him no matter what he had. We named him Peter. We were told there were no survivors beyond two weeks with trisomy 18 and that most people aborted babies like this.
The Thomas More Law Center announced that Federal District Court Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff of the Eastern District of Michigan, [yesterday], granted a Motion for a Preliminary Injunction against enforcement of the HHS Mandate filed by TMLC on behalf of Plaintiffs Tom Monaghan and his property management company, Domino's Farm Corporation. Judge Zatkoff previously ruled in favor of granting an emergency temporary restraining order. The preliminary injunction extends the previous ruling to protect the plaintiffs for the entire pendency of the case. Judge Zatkoff's ruling halts enforcement of the HHS mandate against Monaghan and his property management company, Domino's Farms Corporation of which he is the owner and sole shareholder.
Dr. Ben Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon who made a big splash with his politically incorrect speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, gave an interview recently where he gave clues to what he would say in his upcoming speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which will take place in Washington, D.C., [on Saturday, March 16]. Carson, head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., said that his CPAC speech will revolve around the topic of America's "upside down" healthcare program, a subject he touched on at the National Prayer Breakfast.Editor's Note: Dr. Carson has been a pro-life stalwart for decades. Here is a link to an interview he did for American Life League's "Celebrate Life" show in 1992
A baby girl doctors have named Chloe is receiving an outpouring of love and attention----a far cry from the way she was discovered on February 19, wrapped in a plastic bag and abandoned in a dumpster near an apartment complex outside Houston. A woman walking her dog noticed a plastic Wal-Mart bag moving as she passed the dumpster and proceeded to investigate. Inside she found a baby girl. Chloe was taken to Texas Children's Hospital, where doctors concluded she was just a few days old. Her picture hit the television screens and melted the hearts of those deep in the heart of Texas. Soon, groups of strangers began e-mailing and calling to find out more about the adoption process.
