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.

Two teenagers who survived failed abortions speak out
"My name is Courtney. I’m sixteen years young. When I was 14, I was
told that I am adopted. When I was 14, I also learned that there was
much more to the story of my life. Not only am I adopted, but I am an

“personhood” is necessary for basic murder definitions. Killing a “human
being” or a “fellow creature,” even, is enough. Read more...
Why pro-aborts can't avoid occasionally sounding pro-life
It’s obvious why graphics like this one, quoting from Dr. Seuss’s classic children’s story Horton Hears a Who!,
are popular in pro-life circles: it’s appealing to see a universally
beloved cultural figure voice a simple truth with such obvious
implications for the abortion debate.
Recently, I came across the below image on the Proudly Pro-Choice Tumblr, featuring a quote from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which holds a similar appeal. Read more...
Drive west down Lancaster Avenue through Philadelphia’s “Main Line”
and you’ll pass picturesque towns fit for movie backdrops. But turn
east, and you’ll soon find yourself in front of a former house of
horrors, the truth of which some want to censor from ever hitting the
screen, big or small.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s clinic no longer hears the cries of
full-term, born-alive babies being brutally murdered or the silent
screams of thousands of the unborn innocent, but one team of filmmakers
wants to make sure America never forgets. Not surprisingly, the team is
facing an uphill battle. Read more...
