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 11: Not everyone’s excited by prayer
From anarchists to socialists, pro-abortion folks are getting angry ...
and it starts with a place I visited this week -- San Francisco.
The writers of this string of clichés and talking points (you’re an
“anti-choice bigot” according to this piece) were giddy and gleeful that
pro-abortion protesters tried to disrupt the 40 Days for Life kickoff
rally in San Francisco.
This line pretty much sums it up: “Anti-choice protests like these have
helped create a climate that puts women’s fundamental right to choose
what she does with her body into question.”
The writers declared victory for the pro-abortion side, a victory
attained by “outnumbering and demoralizing” the 40 Days for Life group:

Truth is not determined by numbers. But if it was, then attendance at
nine years’ worth of 40 Days for Life campaigns in San Francisco versus

California is anything but demoralized -- as proven by the record 41 locations hosting 40 Days for Life vigils right now!
Another Socialist Worker article referred to “an abortion rights emergency.” And that’s perhaps closer to the truth.
These protests aren’t happening because the pro-abortion side is
winning; they’re happening because the pro-abortion side is losing …
even in California, long considered a bastion of support for legal
Vigils at 41 abortion centers and Planned Parenthood facilities in California represent a whole lot of prayer.
No wonder abortion proponents are worried!
San Francisco, California
Parenthood in downtown San Francisco closed a few years back after many
40 Days for Life campaigns. “It was a miracle,” said Ron, the leader.
Ron didn’t stop. He moved to another Planned Parenthood abortion
facility in one of America’s most pro-abortion cities. It’s not an easy
30 minutes, we were harassed by a lady who insulted us and filmed us as
she accused us of being “gender supremacists.” This doesn’t shake Ron ... [more]
40 Days for Life vigil participants in Redding have had to deal with
the elements so far during this campaign – there was even a hailstorm on
one of the abortion days!
Then the abortion staff put up a sheet as a barrier between their clients and the prayer volunteers ... [more]
beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
with all lowliness, and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one
another in love.
— Ephesians 4:1b-2
Dear Heavenly Father, we are humbled that you have called us and
appointed us to be ambassadors of Christ in a world that is not our
home. We pray that your Holy Spirit will empower us to walk worthy of
the calling. We pray that Your unconditional love will flow through us
to those who desperately need Your saving grace.
