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 LIVE ACTION: Study finds 25% of women who have abortions are also abused
An academic study published this month reveals that about 25% of
women seeking an abortion had been abused by their partners. The
meta-analysis researched and analyzed 74 previous studies from across
the world to determine whether there was an association between intimate
partner violence (IPV) and abortion. The results show a clear
connection between the two, which must be addressed in any culture that
offers its women abortion as an option. Women must be helped in the
process. Read more...

What about those who are pro-choice and religious?It is embarrassing to see individuals like Rabbi Aaron Alexander
claim, with original emphasis, that “[y]our definition of when life
begins is not based on scientific fact. It is your religiously held
belief. But it isn’t mine.” It’s good that the rabbi realizes the
importance of religion, and thus we have that in common, but he should
know better than to mix up science and religion when one doesn’t depend
on the other. Whether one is pro-life for religious reasons, or she is
part of the 1 in 6 million campaign of non-religious pro-lifers, she is
pro-life because she knows that life actually does begin at conception.
Thus, “when life begins” is based on scientific fact, and it’s not merely your or my definition. Read more...
There have been concerns expressed about the Republican Party’s
commitment to the pro-life cause, and even conceding such a position to
focus on other issues or gain more votes. The Washington Times has
reported, however, that Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican
National Committee (RNC), recently announced he will be “delaying the
start of the party’s annual winter meeting so he and other committee
members can join the March for Life on the Mall[.]” Read more...
