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.

Contact Congress Today in Support of Religious Freedom!
know that prayer is a powerful weapon. In just over a month from now,
the bishops of the United States are sponsoring another Fortnight for
Freedom of prayer and fasting to rebuild our culture and protect
Though the First Amendment is still part of our Constitution, we face
serious challenges to religious freedom in the United States, including
the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations like Human Life International to comply with the HHS contraception/abortifacient/sterilization
mandate. Potential Supreme Court rulings this June could redefine
marriage, causing religious freedom issues for Catholic adoption
agencies and other organizations, as we've already seen in some states.
Our country needs people of prayer, but we also need people of action.
That is why I'm asking you to take just a few minutes to act today in
support of religious freedom.
Some members of Congress are supporting proposed legislation to protect
individuals and institutions with moral or religious objections from
Obamacare's mandates. But too few members of the U.S. House and Senate
are hearing from their constituents about the urgent need to protect
religious freedom in America.
Please call the U.S. Capitol switchboard today at 202-224-3121 and ask your representatives to enact legislation protecting religious freedom.
If you don't know specifically who to ask for, you find your representative in the House and both of your Senators online. Call 202-224-3121
and ask for your Member of Congress by name, then explain how important
it is that he or she support legislation to protect the conscience
rights of the American people. You can even go a step further and ask to
meet with them in their offices during the upcoming Memorial Day recess
to express your concerns face to face.
Invite your friends and family to contact their representatives about
protecting religious freedom as well by forwarding this email and
posting messages on Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtag
#religiousfreedom on Twitter.
all want to leave a better world for the next generation, but we can't
become complacent in the fight for that better future. Call Congress
today to protect religious freedom.
