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 40 Days For Life: here's the HUGE news!
40 Days for Life prepares to kick off in two weeks, on September 28, in
367 locations -- across all 50 US states, and 23 nations -- we just
posted a brand new 3-minute video with the breaking news I promised to send you:
50 states in 40 days:
40 Days for Life launches massive
coast-to-coast UNITED bus tour
-- Recognizing the urgency for ending America's abortion crisis, 40 Days
for Life will set out on an unprecedented 40-day bus tour to bring its
message of hope to cities and towns across the United States that are
united in prayer and fasting during this fall's UNITED 40 Days for Life
campaign, which runs from September 28 to November 6.
A Washington, DC rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court on the evening of September 27 will set the stage for the 50-state tour.
poll reveals that an overwhelming majority of Americans feel our nation
is on the wrong track," said 40 Days for Life CEO David Bereit, "and
when pressed, many respondents cite growing disillusionment with
politics and government, along with frustration over increasing attacks
against faith, family, religious freedom, and human life. It's time for
this to change."
The UNITED tour
will make stops in more than 125 cities to hold rallies and prayer
vigils that will encourage Christians to stand together for the sanctity
of life all across the nation.
"Since 40 Days
for Life started in 2007," said 40 Days for Life president Shawn Carney,
"we have recognized that although abortion is a national problem, it
does not happen in the White House, in Congress, or in the Supreme
Court. Abortion takes place in hometowns across America - and it will
end, and is ending, in hometowns across America, one by one."
40 Days for
Life campaigns consist of 40 days of prayer and fasting, community
outreach, and constant, peaceful vigil in the public right-of-way
outside abortion facilities. The volunteers who pray at these vigils
have witnessed answers to their prayers, including: 11,796 babies saved
from abortion, 133 workers who have left the abortion industry, and 75
abortion centers which closed their doors forever following 40 Days for
faith sometimes feel alone in their efforts to end abortion," said 40
Days for Life North American campaign director Steve Karlen. "We can't
wait to hit the road with the UNITED tour to show that we are all in
this together - and with God's blessings, abortion in this country will
come to an end. We encourage every pro-life American to learn more at 40daysunited.com and come out and join us!"
Please pray for this massive undertaking wherever you are
... and for all 40 Days for Life participants across America -- we
can't wait to see you in person as our team travels to all 50 states!
