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.

generation not only too weak to deal with inconvenient truths but also
too willing to punish whistleblowers . . . Our campuses are turning
into a nightmare from Neverland-with children who "won't grow up"
