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 38: Save a life this week
With just a few days to go in this 40 Days for Life campaign, ask
yourself ... "Can I go out to pray and help save a life from abortion?"
One of the local 40 Days for Life leaders in upstate New York met a woman with a story to tell.
She was pregnant and distressed, and was headed to Planned Parenthood
for an abortion. But when she got there, she saw a lone woman ... on the
sidewalk ... praying ... in the rain.
That was all it took. She changed her heart and her mind ... and is now the mom of a 3-month-old boy.
If you haven't been out yet, it's not too late! And all you have to do is stand and pray.
Our full day in Florida began with a nice crowd at the vigil stop in the Orlando suburb of Altamonte Springs. Two media outlets covered the event!
Local leaders report five confirmed saves
here since this campaign began. Staff members from the pregnancy care
center next door said that during this 40 Days for Life campaign, the
abortion center where volunteers have been praying has reduced hours and
had a noticeable decrease in customers!
The faithful of Sarasota
came out in great numbers to witness for life outside the Planned
Parenthood mega abortion center during the vigil stop ... while abortion
workers stood outside the building and listened to the entire event.
The pro-life coordinator for the Catholic Diocese of Venice, Jeanne
Berdeaux, who has helped to coordinate 40 Days for Life campaigns in
this part of the state for a long time, thanked the volunteers for their
prayers and efforts here over many years.
It was the middle of the afternoon on a weekday ... but enthusiastic people turned out for the vigil stop in St. Petersburg.
The prayer volunteers responded enthusiastically when Sarah, the vigil coordinator, announced that three babies have been saved from abortion at the local site during this 40 Days for Life campaign.
At our final event in Tampa, local leaders reported that 11 lives have been saved from abortion during this 40 Days for Life campaign!
A local Telemundo TV news crew covered the rally. The attendees, some of
whom drove several hours from other parts of the state, got creative
and used a step ladder to find the few remaining available spots to sign
the bus -- since it is now covered by thousands upon thousands of signatures.
It's good that there are only three days of the tour remaining, or we'd need a second bus to hold this massive display of support from across America!
think that it is so great that prayer for life became a common thing in
our community. But God has sent new enthusiastic people" ... [more]
In the eye of the storm
Miller always has a story to tell. But then again ... God puts him in
places where so much is happening! Dan's on the front lines... [more]
have heard it was said, 'you shall love your neighbor, and hate your
enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you,
do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you
and persecute you.
-- Matthew 5: 43-44
Heavenly Father, may we reflect your character of grace and kindness to
those who hate us and curse us. Guard our hearts and our tongues as we
respond in love to words and actions meant to rile us or cause us harm.
Let others see the Hope that is Christ in all we say and do.
