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 advocates are careful to act as if they’re not really fans of
abortion. No one likes abortion, they’ll say. It’s a necessary decision

with untapped power and potential. Her anatomy is, in every way,
designed for the journey of motherhood — down to her last chromosome.
Her pelvic bones are set wider than a man’s, so that they can expand to
accommodate the passage of her baby’s tiny body (which, at that moment,
