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.

"More babies will be saved"
Dear Deacon John,
The 40 Days for Life campaign started in Texas ... and the world came knocking. God has now used this effort to save lives and change hearts in 44 countries!
Leading a campaign is hard -- no matter where you live -- but some countries have extraordinary difficulties to overcome ... including Nigeria.
Nigeria faces many problems associated with refugees, unexpected
pregnancies -- and abortions offered by what one brand-new 40 Days for
Life leader calls "quack medical personnel."
This courageous volunteer writes, "I have saved two babies in these areas, and I believe with a coordinated campaign, more babies will be saved and many women and girls will chose life."
does say that a vigil would have to be limited to daylight hours "due
to the insecurity caused by Fulani herdsmen in these areas." Still, she
says, "I am eager to lead the campaign in these troubled areas."
Now those are challenges that simply don't exist in
most Western nations!
But this effort should serve as inspiration to others -- maybe you!
-- to step up and lead 40 Days for Life vigils. The campaign runs
September 27 to November 5 ... and applications are open until June 23:
40 Days for Life is also spreading very quickly in Croatia, which was
formerly under Communist rule. Ante Caljkusic brought the first campaign
to Zagreb, Croatia's capital city, and the effort has spread from
Ante and several volunteers recently visited Rome. The group included a Croatian mom who chose
life for her child. In Rome, Pope Francis blessed this baby and told Ante and the others, "There is no more important work than this one. Be persistent!"
