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.

Top 3 Things “To Do” on Ash Wednesday
Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. It’s a day for reflection, and a
reminder to show mercy and kindness to those in need.
In Haiti, Makendia's (above) little face isn’t just sad, it’s full of
suffering. Pain has taken over this 4-year-old’s life. She can’t sleep.
She can’t play. She can’t smile.
Makendia’s mother told us, “My child cries from pain, but I cannot help her.”
Makendia has been living with a severe ear infection for months, and
it’s getting worse. Like many in her poor, remote community, Makendia’s
parents can’t afford transportation to the nearest clinic, or the
medicine she so desperately needs.
The three most important things we can do during Lent are:
Pray for one another.
Open our eyes to God's love.
Open our hearts to the vulnerable, weak and poor.
Wednesday, I'm counting on generous people like you to make sure that
poor, sick children like Makendia find mercy, dignity, and love. I’m
praying that this little girl gets the help she needs. Please help with
a donation now.
