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.

From Fr. Peter West: Here's what happened:
I witnessed something recently that has deeply affected my faith and my vocation as a priest.
I want to tell you that the miracles of the Black Madonna are real.
Here's what happened:
As custodian of the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa during the North American leg of HLI’sOcean to Ocean Campaign in Defense of Life, I brought her to the notorious LeRoyCarhart's abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland.
You probably remember him: he performs late-term abortions and has even
killed mothers through his diabolical procedures on the abortion table.
While praying with the icon in front of his abortion center, three women changed their minds and decided to choose life!
Even one of Carhart's workers, a woman who has always been
hostile to pro-life prayer activists -- often cursing and screaming at
them -- had a change of heart! She walked up to the pro-lifers
surrounding the icon and opened up to them. She revealed she's
post-abortive herself -- a heavy burden she has carried for too long.
