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.

Planned Parenthood's Annual Report: Less "health care" ... more abortion
Dear Deacon John,
Planned Parenthood finally got around to releasing its annual report
... and it's both challenging and motivating for all of us.
Here's what's on the way up in Planned Parenthood's latest set of annual statistics:
Abortions -- UP from 323,999 to 328,348
Taxpayer funding -- UP from $553.7 million to $554.6 million
Profits -- UP from $58.8 million to $77.5 million
But here's what's on the way down at Planned Parenthood:
Clients -- DOWN from 2.5 million to 2.4 million
Cancer screenings -- DOWN from 682,208 to 665,234
Prenatal services -- DOWN from 17,419 to 9,419
This report reminds us of one fact -- Planned Parenthood is an abortion business.
But YOU can do something about it right where you live. Applications to LEAD a 40 Days for Life campaign from September 27 - November 5 are open:
Your prayers and peaceful presence can impact these numbers and help end
abortion where you live. To see an example, watch a short video
recorded in front of a closed Planned Parenthood
center where 6,400 abortions took place.
Whether you ultimately decide to lead or not, please pray
for all the local leaders who will be going through our 40 Days for
Life training program this summer ... so they can help end abortion
where they live.
