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.

Accepting The Gift Of Life Against All Odds: A Special Story For Mother’s Day
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day when we honor our mothers for their unconditional love and their gift of life. Below, read the story of Maureen and Martha from Zambia – a story of sadness, encouragement, gratitude and devotion.
My name is Maureen and I live in Zambia.
Everyday I see my daughter in the face of my granddaughter, Martha.
She has a very sad story. Her mom died in childbirth, leaving three children behind. The children’s father deserted them and I am all they have left. And so at 50, I am a mom again.
My own husband has been sick for years and I’ve worked very hard to take care of my family. But now to start again, I just don’t know what I’ll do or how I’ll do it. My oldest son is trying to help, but we often don’t have enough food to eat.
The health workers at the clinic have been a blessing from God. When we got to the clinic they knew right away that Martha was not well and gave her formula. They are doing what they can to help me be a better mother to Martha.
