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.

From 40 Days For Life: DAY 30: Miracle in California
If I could ask you to read only one email this campaign -- it would be this one!
This is the best sight I’ve seen since being part of 40 Days for Life.
This little girl is Milagros – her name means “Miracle.”
I wrote about her in the 40 Days for Life book.
Her mom Rosa had experienced a number of difficult circumstances in
life … and she was now pregnant. Then on top of that, doctors told her
to get an abortion because her baby was “severely handicapped.”
Reluctantly, Rosa went into one of the largest abortion facilities in
Southern California … where she met volunteers from the 40 Days for Life
campaign in Orange. And they went to work.
They found new doctors – some of the best (and most pro-life)
specialists in the Los Angeles area. They told Rosa that yes, there was a
problem with the baby’s legs. But she was a healthy child and there was
no reason in the world to abort her.
With ongoing support from the local community, she had her baby … and named her Milagros. Milagros was born with no legs.
Fast forward almost six years … and Milagros and her mom came out to the
40 Days for Life rally in Orange … and signed the 40 Days for Life bus!
Milagros may not be the first child saved during a 40 Days for Life
vigil to add a signature to the bus … but just like her name suggests,
she may be the most miraculous.
When you are frustrated at the state of our culture -- keep going. You
may not see results instantly … but in time God will reveal His
This is the result of your prayers, so … keep praying!

Matt spoke about the role of men in society and specifically the
pro-life culture and in ending abortion, emphasizing the need for men to
live a life of fidelity and charity to counteract the modern culture.
“This faithful team is determined to see the closure of this last
abortion facility in Falls Church,” he said, “as they did a few years
back when they witnessed the closure of the Falls Church Planned

The group included parishioners from a local church – including members of two families.
“The joy-filled children playing outside the abortion center after the
service were a stark contrast to the staff inside, who were finishing up
their deadly work at 5:30 pm on a Saturday afternoon,” said one of the
Southfield team leaders.
it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the babe
leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then
she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For indeed, as soon as the
voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb
Jesus, open my eyes to your presence in the life of every child. Open my
heart to joy in the birth of every child, a birth that reflects the joy
of your own birth in Bethlehem. As you shared life in the womb of Mary,
so now send your protection upon every child still in the womb, and
grant to their mothers the strength and joy that comes from welcoming
the gift of life.
