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.

We are so excited to share the BIG NEWS! Our 2015 Summer
Soiree and Fundraiser speakers have been confirmed and you won't want
to miss hearing their testimonies!
Dr. Haywood Robinson
Family Medicine Doctor and Pro-life Advocate
Dr. Haywood Robinson is a Family Medicine doctor and pro-life advocate from College Station, Texas.
During his residency
in Los Angeles, Dr. Robinson received abortion training while on the
obstetrics and gynecology service. At the time, he did not give the
matter serious thought and had no moral opposition to abortion. During
this time he met his future wife, Noreen. Moonlighting at abortion
clinics together was commonplace and money became a mutual motivator as
the pay was substantial.
After completing their residency programs, the
Robinsons were married and moved to Texas. Five years later, the Lord
spoke to their hearts and they were transformed. By God's grace, Dr.
Haywood is now part of the pro-life ministry, sharing his testimony
nationwide to expose the truth about the abortion industry and to be a
voice for the unborn.
