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 40 Days For Life: Will your city be next?
Dear Deacon John,
One week from today, 40 Days for life will kick off in 297 cities in 13 countries... beginning a campaign that will run from September 24 - November 2.
Will your city be the next one to get a sign like this?
One year ago, volunteers in Hollister, California were gearing up for their first 40 Days for Life campaign in front of the local Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Last month — after speculation that Planned Parenthood's business had diminished and keeping the facility open could not be justified — they closed their doors!
The local leader of that first — and only — 40 Days for Life campaign in Hollister said the number of prayer volunteers may have been small, but they spoke with a strong voice ..."and God heard their cry!"
The next 40 Days for Life campaign starts Wednesday, September 24 and goes through Sunday, November 2.
People just like those volunteers in Hollister will be out in front of abortion businesses and other Planned Parenthood facilities in 297 locations — cities from coast to coast in the United States and Canada as well as in 11 other countries ...
... including first-time campaigns in Mexico, Brazil and Latvia.
