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.

Abortion Stories Reveal Abuse
"I counted four movements, and she
was gone." – Dana, 42
New York Magazine recently compiled the
personal abortion testimonies of 26 U.S. women in a November 10 piece entitled My Abortion.

Every piece of state legislation has the potential to ultimately become
the modern-day Supreme Court case that will rule abortion on-demand
unconstitutional. In the process, local legislation on the state level
incurs grassroots interest, and large numbers of local citizens are able
understand Life issues on a more personal level than if they were
happening far away in DC.
Abortion mills, supposedly advocating “choice,” have failed for forty
years to inform women of all of their choices when it comes to
pregnancy. Abortion facilities advocate choice because, well, it’s their
source of revenue. They don’t profit off of other pregnancy outcomes.
Vulnerable women in unplanned pregnancy situations are frequently also
pressured into this choice by a partner or relative. The Silent No More
Awareness Campaign reveals thousands of women’s testimonies stating that
they did not know there were other options, such parenting with the
support of organizations that could help them with their expenses, or
Every voice was echoing the same word: abortion.
