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.

Obama launches new attack
Dear CV Friend,
The Supreme Court has already rebuked Obama twice on religious liberty.
But that isn't stopping this president from launching another attack on religious liberty.
This time, Obama is using the purse strings of the federal government to marginalize employers with religious convictions.

Obama today signed an executive order which demands that all federal
contractors and subcontractors grant special treatment based on “sexual
orientation” and “gender identity.”
executive order signed by Obama thankfully preserves an exemption put in
place by President George W. Bush which allows religious employers the
freedom to favor employees of a certain religion in making hiring
decisions. So under the new rules, a religious university could not fire
a teacher for being a lesbian, but could fire her because she’s not a

executive order will launch a flood of lawsuits against employers who
have deeply-held convictions that certain kinds of sexual behavior is
inconsistent with their moral or religious beliefs.
executive order, expected to take full effect in 2015, will affect
24,000 companies employing approximately 28 million American workers, or
about one-fifth of the country's workforce.
Obama could have easily issued this executive order for LGBT employees
while maintaining a robust exemption for religious liberty.
again, Obama has shown his strong hostility to religious expression in
American life. In his mind, we have only “freedom to worship” inside the
four walls of our church. But we dare not practice “freedom of
religion” where we take our faith to the public square. If we do that,
Obama believes that we must also sacrifice any religious principles out
of sync with the federal government.
In Obama's mind, it's ok if you go to Church on Sunday, but don't you dare act like a Christian any other day of the week.
