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 CMMB: Do Double the Good for Mother's Day
Donate to CMMB this Mother's Day and your gift will be DOUBLED!
One in seven women dies during pregnancy
or childbirth in South Sudan—the lowest maternal survival rate in the
world. Even today, in the midst of armed conflict, giving birth is one
of the most dangerous things a woman in South Sudan can do.
of those deaths could be prevented through access to basic health care.
Inadequate facilities, drug shortages, and lack of trained medical
staff mean that even the most straightforward birth could quickly turn
into a life-threatening emergency—one that robs families, depriving
children of their mothers. Women who are under-nourished or otherwise
ill are especially at risk.
CMMB arrived, the primary health-care center in Ezo had no staff,
supplies, or facilities for emergency obstetrics. Your gifts built and
supplied a new delivery ward, trained specialized staff, and renovated
the maternity ward so that there are reliable sources of electricity and
child should grow up without a mother. That is why CMMB works in South
Sudan and other countries around the world to help women experience
healthy pregnancies and healthy births so their children can have
something everyone deserves: a mother’s love.
