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 34: More mothers and babies spared!
It's Monday morning ... and time for good news at the start of the final week of this 40 Days for Life campaign!
Since this all started on September 28, our local leaders around the world are reporting ...
527 mothers who've chosen life for their babies -- that we know of!

in College Station, Texas.
One highlight of this rally was meeting a couple who got involved in
Austin's 40 Days for Life campaign to honor their daughter, who lost her
life last year. They said she inspired them to follow her example and
pray for an end to abortion.
San Antonio, they remember the Alamo ... and they also remember the unborn!
Thanks to God's answer to your prayers, more than 12,000 babies have
been saved from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns ... and it
sure helps that our local leaders can depend on life-affirming pregnancy
resource centers to show mothers they have real
Peggy Hartshorn of Heartbeat International told the crowd that you
always know when a 40 Days for Life vigil is going on ... because
there's an increase in the number of mothers who visit pregnancy care
centers. Your presence is really making a difference!
Houston is home to the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere -- the 78,000 square-foot Planned Parenthood building.
A great crowd came out for a candlelight vigil and was moved by the
testimony of a post-abortive woman who shared about how she and her
husband went through an abortion -- 42 years ago. They later had three
other children. The oldest was at the UNITED rally

four lives saved, "it seems to be a very positive effect" ... [more]
A couple parked, got out and walked up to the front door. But they didn't go in.
They stopped, turned around -- and then left ... [more]
the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through
Him, and without Him nothing
was made that was made.
O God, may we always be quick to call you Father. And when we call you
father, let your Spirit remind us that we, and all people, from their
beginning to their last day, are your children. We praise you, Father,
that you sent your Son to reveal to the world
that all people are His brothers and sisters, that all people are your
