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.

Victory! Trump Defunds UNFPA
D.C. The Trump administration has announced that it will cut off U.S.
funding for the United Nations Population Fund, on the basis that the
UNFPA’s activities in China are complicit with that nation’s coercive
population control program, the implementation of which includes forced
abortion and involuntary sterilization.
Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers,
stated, “We are thrilled that the U.S. is no longer funding forced
abortion and involuntary sterilization in China. The blood of Chinese
women and babies will no longer be on our hands. My very first press
release, in 2009, was entitled “You Are Funding Forced Abortions in China.” I have consistently advocated for the defunding of UNFPA over the years, most recently just a couple of weeks ago at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
Last month, I also briefed the State Department on continuing coercion,
including forced abortion, under China’s Two-Child Policy.
message at the UNCSW was that The United States Secretary of State
should investigate and evaluate UNFPA’s activities in China, and the
President should de-fund them under the Kemp-Kasten Amendment, which
‘prohibits funding for any organization or program that, as determined
by the President, supports or participates in the management of a
program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.’
Reggie Littlejohn has advocated defunding UNFPA since 2009
continued, “The UNFPA clearly supports China’s population control
program, which they know is coercive. Under China’s One (now Two) Child
Policy, women have been forcibly aborted up to the ninth month of
pregnancy. Some of these forced abortions have been so violent that the
women themselves have died, along with their full term babies. There
have been brutal forced sterilizations as well, butchering women and
leaving them disabled. Where was the outcry from the UNFPA? In my
opinion, silence in the face of such atrocities is complicity. Dr.
Martin Luther King once said, ‘In the end, we will remember not the
words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.’ The UNFPA’s
silence in the face of decades of forced abortion has been a sword in
the wombs of millions of women and babies of China. I rejoice with them
that the foot of the UNFPA is finally off of their necks.”
YES, I WANT TO HELP END GENDERCIDE AND FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA!
