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 20: Keep praying -- it's working!
As we start another week ... how about some good news as a welcome break from the headlines?
Since this 40 Days for Life campaign started on September 28 ... we now have received reports of 264 babies whose moms chose life at the last minute -- that we know of!
People are praying -- and bringing a public witness of Christ's mercy -- at 367 locations in 23 countries.
The community was truly UNITED in Bellevue, Nebraska
... with 40 Days for Life leaders and volunteers as well as pregnancy
center directors on hand from both sides of the Nebraska-Iowa border.
The abortion facility in Bellevue (it's near Omaha) is run by the notorious late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart.
The good news is that while Carhart, who is now in his mid-70s, and his fellow practitioners are aging quickly ... pro-lifers are getting younger!
This was clear at Nebraska's state rally, which included representatives
from the local Students for Life chapter and a number of high school
Heather from Silent No More told the story of how her cousin was in the
procedure room, trying to talk her out of her abortion. But in an effort
to prevent Heather from changing her mind, the abortion staff kicked her cousin out.
What irony that such heavy-handed tactics are used in the name of defending a "right to choose"!
From here ... it's a ten-hour drive to the first of four stops in Colorado. Please keep us in prayer!

prayed to the Lord for his wife because she was barren; and the Lord
granted his prayer and Rebekah his wife conceived. The children
struggled together within her, and she said, "If it is thus, why do I
live?" So she went to inquire of the Lord. And the Lord said to her,
"Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples, born of you, shall be
divided; the one shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve
-- Genesis 25:21-23
O, God, you formed us in our mother's womb and planned a unique and
special life and purpose for each of us, and we do thank you. Grant that
we may pray and work for an end to abortion, especially in these 40
days, so that no unborn baby you have made may fail to achieve your
divine intention for him or her because of intentional abortion.
