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.

[ video ] Pope Francis: Jesus teaches that life is a gift
If you live life as a gift, you follow the path of Jesus, the only other
option is the path of Judas, which does not include the fecundity of
love. This is a passage from the Pope's homily from Mass Tuesday
morning. Pope Francis prayed "In these days of waiting for the feast of
the Holy Spirit, we ask: Come, Holy Spirit, come and give me this big
heart, this heart capable of loving with humility, with meekness, an
open heart that is capable of loving. And let's ask this grace, of the
Holy Spirit. And may He free us always from the other path, the path of
selfishness, which eventually ends badly. Let us ask for this grace.
