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.

From CMMB: Sharing Joy and Gratitude from One of Our Volunteers
GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER. - Psalm 107:1
Our volunteer doctor in South Sudan, Dr. Rachael Consoli has
completed her year of service with CMMB. We’re honored to share her
letter this week:
One year is over. Today was my last day at the Hospital. I’m so
grateful for this amazing experience. My friend Dr. Daniel Doyle, a
cardiologist from Australia, who also comes to South Sudan to help sent
me such an appropriate story today. It is called the "The mighty life
of Oliver Sacks captured by Norman Doidge.” Appropriate for me today
because it is about being grateful for our experiences and our journey.
The last part reads:
hope when I die someday, they will say, "And Rachael died.....full of
years". I feel full of joy, gratitude and full of years. I am so sad to
leave these beautiful people and this broken country. As you know I
have been all over the world, to every continent except Antarctica and
here in Ezo, Western Equatoria, South Sudan I lived really "Golden"
months of my entire life.
I am so grateful to God that I was allowed to know this and live this
gratefully as I was here, that it was a special time in my life. I
treasured every moment and lived every moment to the fullest. Everyone
was so wonderful to me.
God the Creator of the Universe, the Almighty one looks at little,
insignificant, sinful, selfish me and loves me!! Who am I to deserve
this treatment of favor?
Thank you, South Sudan.
Thank you, people of Ezo, Nzara, Yambio.
Thank you, CMMB.
Thank you, Diocese of Tombura- Yambio.
Thank you, Comboni Missionary Nuns.
Thank you, Staff of Hospital in Ezo and in Nzara.
Thank you to all the patients who entrusted their lives to me. Their health to me.
