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.

Liberal media OUTRAGED by pro-life Presidential candidate
Pundits can't believe a candidate would oppose abortion in THIS case
Liberal media OUTRAGED by pro-life Presidential candidate's comments
It’s all over the news. The liberal media is proclaiming that “Mike Huckabee says 10 year-old rape victim should have to carry child.”
The story is horrifying—a 10-year-old
child in Paraguay was raped by her step-father. Last week, she gave
birth to a child who was created in God’s image just like every one of
us. Paraguay protects personhood in all circumstances and prohibits
abortion without exception.
What the headline doesn’t tell you is that before he took this stance, Mike Huckabee acknowledged that rape is a horrible thing.
Mike Huckabee has it exactly right: rape is horrible, and so is abortion. Abortion doesn’t solve anything. Abortion doesn’t make rape “better” or make it go away.
Mike Huckabee’s courageous stance on personhood for all—no child-killing under any circumstances—is teaching the nation that there are those who will stand up for the unborn.
While Personhood USA does not endorse any presidential candidate, Mike
Huckabee could sure use our encouragement and acknowledgment that he is
doing the right thing by boldly and courageously defending unborn
babies. And we should expect every single pro-life Presidential candidate to follow suit!
This message of protecting ALL innocent life, no matter the
circumstances surrounding the child’s conception, is not a popular
one…but it’s definitely necessary.
Personhood USA has saturated the country with the powerful message of
personhood for all, and one of the ways we have done this is with some
incredible videos featuring speakers who were either victims of rape or
conceived in rape.
While the pro-abortion crowd always points to rape as a reason for a
“right” to abortion, these testimonial videos show the opposite.
In “El aborto nunca es necesario”,
Lianna shares a story of being raped as a 12-year-old, and choosing
life for her unborn baby. It is an incredible and moving story, and
watching Lianna with her beautiful daughter on the video transcends a
language barrier with a universal message of life and hope.
As the media and pro-choice groups continues to lambast Mike Huckabee,
as if it’s unthinkable that he would stand up for babies conceived in
rape, I’m reminded of Ashley Sigrest’s story - Ashley talks about the devastation of choosing abortion after rape.
This is the stuff no one talks about: the aftermath of a child choosing
life when faced with the unthinkable, and the aftermath of choosing
abortion after rape. It is painfully clear that choosing life, even in
the midst of unthinkable circumstances, comes with immeasurable blessing
instead of immeasurable heartache.
With your support, Personhood USA will continue our educational efforts to make sure that we stand up for EVERY unborn child, with no exceptions.
