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.

Children with disabilities deserve a life of dignity
"I wish to be independent and have a family."
We’re working to give children with disabilities a life of dignity.
Born with developmental disabilities and paralysis of his lower limbs,
Jacob’s parents abandoned him as a baby. He has lived with his
grandmother ever since. Jacob’s education has been very limited because
of his special needs, yet he has a special talent in fixing things.
Recently, he built a solar panel to power his own radio, made from torn
shoes and other broken electrical parts. Can you imagine?
By expanding Jacob’s skills, this talented young man is brimming with
the potential to become self-sufficient and also to take care of his
80-year-old grandmother. We are thrilled that a CMMB supporter recently
provided him with the transformational opportunity to pursue education
at a local vocational training college. Their generosity means Jacob’s
future is forever changed, and he will be better equipped to live out a
life full of dignity.
In Kenya, Grace suffered a stroke at age eight. Five-year-old Megina in
Haiti was born without arms. These are just two examples of determined
girls we work with who just want the opportunity to realize their dream
of going to school.
