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.

From 40 Days For Life: DAY 24: “Abortion care happens here”
“Health care happens here.”
That’s what the big pink banners hanging from the walls of Planned Parenthood abortion businesses read. We see them everywhere.
That slogan ties in with their usual deceitful talking points about
mammograms, cancer screenings and prenatal care – things that either
happen at Planned Parenthood rarely – or don’t even happen there at all.

To this we can only respond: “Prayer. No matter what.”
Let’s get to work!
While visiting with volunteers at a rally in Eureka, 40 Days for Life’s
Steve Karlen learned this campaign is built on strong leadership from a
variety of Christian faith communities.
The leaders told Steve that Planned Parenthood in Eureka is losing
money. As a result, its parent group had to merge with another Planned
“One of the people I met said his involvement in 40 Days for Life opened
up a door for him to talk with a pregnant niece,” Steve said. “He
encouraged her to choose life – and she did!”
Paula, the 40 Days for Life leader in Lisbon, says the campaign there continues to grow.
Volunteers have witnessed emotional scenes outside the abortion center –
including one instance where a 39-year-old woman came out in tears
after having an abortion.
“She said she just wanted to go home, get into bed and cry,” Paula said.
She had no children, and said “I’ve never hurt anyone, not even an ant”

these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your
great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your
ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of
Your servants who desire to fear Your name.

We pray for your continued guidance and protection throughout the
remainder of this 40-day campaign. May we be steadfast, unmovable,
always abounding in Your work, knowing that our labor will not be in
