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.
Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, now joins the long list of 40 Days for Life endorsers, which includes religious and organizational leaders across a wide range of Christian faith traditions and backgrounds.
A few days before kicking off our largest initiative ever, this is a great reminder of just how united 40 Days for Life is ...
... And you are invited to take part in the excitement at the start of the UNITED campaign and bus tour!
Next Tuesday evening, September 27, at 9 PM Eastern (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific) we'll be live streaming the video of the UNITED national kickoff rally from outside the US Supreme Court, where abortion was first imposed on all 50 American states.
You're invited to join us online for this important event! The 60-minute program will be packed with inspiration, prayers, and dynamic national speakers, including:
Jeanne Mancini, President, March for Life
Jor-El Godsey, President, Heartbeat International
Georgette Forney, Co-Founder, Silent No More Awareness
David Bereit, CEO, 40 Days for Life
Tina Whittington, Executive VP, Students for Life of America
Steve Karlen, Campaign Director, 40 Days for Life
Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List
For the first time, we'll be using Facebook Live -- the social media platform's streaming video feature. The kickoff rally will be broadcast Tuesday night directly on the 40 Days for Life Facebook page:
