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 6: Babies saved … and a celebration VIDEO
Through the first few days of this 40 Days for Life campaign, our local leaders report …
… 26 babies (and their moms) spared from abortion – that we know of!
There’s more to rejoice about as well, as I’ve just returned from a
visit to New Mexico, where volunteers are celebrating the closure of an
abortion center in Las Cruces where five prayerful 40 Days for Life
vigils were held.
They’ve now moved their vigil to a different abortion facility, this one
in the city of Santa Teresa, with their prayers that the Lord will
close this business as well.
In this short video, you’ll meet Mark Cavaliere, who's led the 40 Days for Life efforts in both of these cities.
Mark tells the story of a heartfelt, urgent community response to the
arrival of abortion in their city … and how prayer to God made the
difference. You'll also learn how Mark fills his vigil hours

your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is
broken, or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at
the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the
spirit will return to God who gave it.
O God, we too often try to live in ways that ignore our coming death. We
forget that our days are numbered by You, that at the end of our days
your judgment awaits, that You are the Lord of our destiny. Help us to
repent daily, and then to live each day in joyful obedience. Lead us to
live in the light and promise of eternity. Prepare us to live fully and
