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.

U.S. Senate girds for close vote on Planned Parenthood funds
Urgent Congressional Alert!
U.S. Senate girds for close vote on filibuster-proof "reconciliation" bill to strip $400 million from Planned Parenthood
(November 13, 2015) -- Within the next few weeks, the U.S. Senate is
expected to vote on a special fast-track bill, H.R. 3762, that would
block about 89% of the federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood --
about $400 million in the next year.
Republican Senate leadership is moving the bill through a rare, special
process called "reconciliation," which prohibits it from being blocked
by a filibuster. But the bill still requires majority support.
bill already passed the U.S. House of Representatives, on October 23,
2015, by a vote of 240-189. The strong House vote reflected a wave of
visible support from grassroots pro-life activists nationwide. In the
U.S. Senate, however, a razor-close vote is expected, and it will
require an even greater nationwide outpouring of support from grassroots
pro-life citizens in order to pass this legislation.
