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 14: Abortions leave Minnesota city
Great news from the 40 Days for Life team in Rochester, Minnesota -- Planned Parenthood has quit doing RU-486 abortions there!
For more than six years, the Rochester facility offered “webcam” abortions – we’ve mentioned these abortions before.
The client is interviewed over the internet by a physician in a distant
location and then given the RU-486 pill regimen by remote control.
More than 320 of these abortions were done in Rochester.
“We are encouraged that the Lord has heard our many prayers and we are
thankful that no more babies will die in this facility via RU-486,” said
Paula Ellefson, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Rochester. “It is
directly across the street from one of our city’s high schools and it is
typically very busy with students throughout the day.”
Twelve 40 Days for Life campaigns have been conducted there, along with
numerous other pro-life events. Paula and her team will continue to pray
that this Planned Parenthood will close down completely.
According to Pro-Life Action Ministries, which leads the 40 Days for
Life vigils in St. Paul, webcam abortions began in Iowa and were also
done in Maine and Minnesota. With the end of the program in Rochester,
there are no more webcam abortions taking place in Minnesota.

for Life campaign outside of her former workplace. Her discomfort with
webcam abortions in Iowa led to her departure ... which she discusses in
a40 Days for Life podcast episode.
After Sue's campaign, that Planned Parenthood location shut down!
Here a report from my latest trip ... from a Planned Parenthood facility that is losing staff.
San Luis Obispo, California
was joined by pastors and Students for Life’s campus director for a
candle light vigil in front of the “100 years strong” sign at Planned
Parenthood in San Luis Obispo.
Planned Parenthood recently marked the 100th anniversary
of their founding, but their brand is at an all-time low – and still
sinking. As for “100 years strong,” Planned Parenthood has lost staff in
San Luis Obispo and is beginning to reduce their business hours.

something irrational. The only hope is to pray, speak the truth in love,
and give witness to the gospel” ... [more]

pro-abortion group wants to ban a 40 Days for Life vigil from the
public pavement outside Queen’s Medical Centre. Nottingham Pro Choice
alleges the peaceful prayer presence is “intimidating” to women and
approaches abortion from a “patronizing standpoint.”

if there was any misbehavior outside the hospital, it was brought by

all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be
put away from you, with all malice. And be kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has

Dearest God, You tell us in Proverbs that the foolish and the wicked
lack wisdom and understanding. I pray you will trouble the souls of
those in the abortion industry so that they hunger for truth and cry out
