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.

SHOCK: Houston Grand Jury Won't Indict Abortionist for Twisting Heads off Babies
SHOCK: Houston Grand Jury Won’t Indict Abortionist for Twisting Heads off Babies
December 20, 2013
Houston, TX – A Houston grand jury has refused to indict late-term
abortionist Douglas Karpen after a months-long investigation into
allegations of illegal late-term abortions and the killing of babies
born alive at his two abortion clinics.
“The refusal to indict Karpen is a gross miscarriage of justice. The
grand jury has essentially freed Karpen to continue to violate Texas
laws and take the lives of late-term babies that the law was meant to
protect,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It’s upsetting
to know that the kind of brutality shown in the photos taken at his
clinic will be allowed continue.”
Operation Rescue alleged that Karpen was murdering babies in in a
similar way as convicted Pennsylvania abortion Kermit Gosnell, who was
found guilty of 3 counts of First Degree murder for intentionally
killing babies born alive during late-term abortions.
The allegations against Karpen were based on information acquired
from four former Karpen employees and on photographs of dead late-term
babies taken by some of the workers on their cell phones. The grisly
photos showed very large aborted babies that were nearly decapitated.
The informants also told Operation Rescue that Karpen routinely did
abortions beyond the legal limit of 24 weeks, which seemed to be
supported by the photographs.
“It’s simply unbelievable that a grand jury would not find that
Karpen broke the law, just based on the photographic evidence alone,”
said Newman. “There’s no way any reasonable person could look at the
images of those abortion victims and say that nothing was done wrong.
The babies’ throats were cut from ear to ear. That isn’t something that
can be done inside the womb.”
Newman continued, “We are not giving up on the Karpen matter. We will
continue to seek ways through the legal system to bring him to justice.
This isn’t the last anyone will hear of this.”
