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.

President Obama had on abortion in Africa ... and the inspiration that
Christians in America have played in saving lives from abortion in

mentality of the abortion industry from the founding of Planned
Parenthood by eugenics advocate Margaret Sanger.
