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.

40 Days For Life: DAY 1: It all starts today!
Today, we enter into 40 days of prayer and fasting, community outreach, and peaceful vigil ... and we do so at a time when our culture needs prayer more than ever.
The current attacks on family, marriage, and the unborn are unprecedented -- and abortion proponents grow bolder by the day.
An international abortion organization has "honored" 40 Days for Life by proclaiming today, September 28, as the "Global day of action for access to safe and legal abortion," which they consider a "human rights issue."
This is not a time in history for discouragement; it is a time for faith, prayer, and action.
And we're ready!
40 Days for Life begins TODAY -- in 367 locations in all 50 US states and 23 other countries ... and we need YOU!
... and step forward in faith to pray and fast for an end to abortion.
The 40 Days for Life UNITED bus tour is heading to all 50 US states in 40 days. David Bereit of 40 Days for Life has a recap of last night's kickoff in Washington, DC.
A dedicated crowd gathered outside the US Supreme Court last night to pray and kick off the UNITED 40 Days for Life campaign and bus tour, while thousands more from around the world watched the event on streaming video.

Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast ... Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people."
Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth.
