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 37: She ran out!
It's never too late for a mother to change her mind before an abortion.
Some change their minds in the parking lot. Some reject abortion on the
sidewalk … others have leaped off the surgical table just moments before
the abortion happens!
We discuss this -- and your lasting impact -- on this new 40 Days for Life podcast episode:
That was the response of one passerby who asked what the 40 Days for
Life volunteers were doing on the sidewalk outside the abortion center
Not all of the interactions are that positive. A man stopped to
literally yell at one of the sidewalk counselors, accusing her of all
sorts of misguided actions, including "shaming woman."
The counselor says he basically reeled off every single pro-abortion
talking point she had ever heard ... but she addressed every one of them
-- calmly, and with truth and love.
This went on for a good 25 minutes until he finally said, "I have no
arguments left. I have never heard any of this before! Maybe it IS good
that you're out here. Thank you so much!" … and he shook her hand.
Said one of the Austin team members, "All it takes is an open heart and open mind."
The 40 Days for Life team in Timisoara says the vigil is attracting
"random acts of kindness" from passersby outside the hospital where
A bus driver stopped to offer the volunteers water and bagels. "He said
he passes the vigil several times a day on his bus route," said one of
the Timisoara team members. "He wanted to do something, but he can't
stay in the street."
A grandmother who visits the vigil site often always brings something
for prayer participants -- donuts, tea or whatever else she can offer as
a sign of appreciation.
"May God reward them and bless them!" said the local leaders.

God Almighty, You alone are worthy of our praise and worship. Having
accepted Your Son’s sacrifice on my behalf, I in turn present my body to
you as a living sacrifice. I pray that you would use me as your vessel
to rescue others who are perishing.
