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 40: Results pouring in!
Forty days and 18,000 miles later ... today marks the end of the 40 Days for Life UNITED bus tour!
There is much to report in the weeks ahead ... so look forward to
learning what God did during the largest 40 Days for Life campaign ever.
For now, there's great news! We are aware of ...
... 658 babies who were saved from abortion during this campaign!
We're still gathering information and expect that number to go even higher -- praise God!
What a powerful way to start the second-to-last day of the UNITED campaign and tour!
One of the former workers from the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Columbia, South Carolina, spoke out against the abortion giant at the rally outside her former workplace ... and signed the bus.
Her name is Michelle. She saw horrific things inside Planned Parenthood,
working alongside the abortionists. But she eventually experienced a change of heart after miscarrying her own twins and recognizing the preciousness of life.
The North Carolina state rally in Charlotte
just had the most aggressive, angry pro-abortion protesters of the
tour, screaming vulgarities and unsuccessfully trying to drown out the
speakers, while holding signs with messages like: "If Mary had an
abortion, we wouldn't be in this mess."
Rather than "respecting women," they screamed at and heckled Andrea Hines as she courageously shared her post-abortion testimony. Some 150 faithful prayer volunteers were undeterred.
Winston-Salem, North Carolina
enthusiastically welcomed the UNITED tour, with families clapping,
cheering and lining the street on the second-to-last stop of the day.
Speakers including state senator Joyce Krawiec and Traci Griggs of the North Carolina Family Policy Council inspired the crowd.
At its root, abortion is a spiritual crisis. That was on clear display at the vigil stop in Raleigh, North Carolina -- which turned into a spontaneous prayer rally.
Dozens of aggressive abortion advocates unsuccessfully tried to disrupt
the event, screaming obscenities at elderly women and young children ...
and when Rhonda from Silent No More shared her post-abortion testimony
and mentioned that we are in a struggle against Satan, the abortion supporters cheered wildly.
In one of the most moving moments of the UNITED tour, rather than
respond to the hatred and anger, the Body of Christ collectively dropped to their knees and prayed -- for God to change hearts and minds, save lives, touch and save souls ... and heal our land.
Thanks to all who faithfully endure persecution for this crucial cause!

her birthday ... wanted to go pray outside Planned Parenthood ... [more]

when I should respond and when I should prayerfully ignore"... [more]

40 Days for Life offers an opportunity to serve the least of our
brothers and sisters - innocent children whose very lives are at risk
will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or
mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed
away." He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything
-- Revelation 21:4-5
Father, you are the God of hope. Your word fills us with the vision of
the world to come, when every tear will be wiped away, and death will be
no more. Father, how we need that hope, how we are strengthened by that
vision! Keep our hearts focused on heaven, and diligent in the labors
of earth. As we struggle against the culture of death, root our souls in
the assurance of victory.
