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 2: Your Planned Parenthood stat
Of the 375+ locations where peaceful 40 Days for Life prayer vigils are
under way ... more than 150 are outside Planned Parenthood offices.
But Planned Parenthood is closing facilities at a record pace … and at least in part, they have YOU to blame for that.
Former Planned Parenthood directors report that the "no-show" rate for
abortion appointments goes as high as 75% when people are out in front
That is detrimental to any business -- but it's important to know that
when Planned Parenthood’s business goes down, it means that lives are
saved from abortion.
It's that simple. Now is the time to show up ... and pray like never before.
Planned Parenthood is still America's abortion giant … and they're still responsible for more than 300,000 abortions every year.
But whether it’s a Planned Parenthood office in your community – or an
independent abortion facility or a hospital – join the closest 40 Days
for Life campaign!
White Plains, New York
White Plains is hosting its eleventh 40 Days for Life campaign … with
volunteers praying outside a Planned Parenthood abortion center that is
open six days a week.
This is one of the 150+ Planned Parenthood businesses where vigils are currently in progress.
At the White Plains kickoff event, a man told his story of how he came
to understand what was going on at the abortion facility – that babies
are dying inside that building … and they don
't have a "choice."
He added that making the sacrifice to simply show up and stand on the
sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood, praying for the mothers and the
babies, provides an important witness to all concerned.
The 40 Days for Life team in Atlanta kicked off its campaign with
several events … including a prayer service, a rally and a baby shower.
Katharine O'Brien, 40 Days for Life’s director of youth and Hispanic outreach
(third from the left in the photo above), spoke to the group, giving an update on the campaign and the mission’s newest initiatives.
Margarita, the local coordinator, offered "a big thank you to First
Alliance Church and Ready to Go Ministries and all who participated in
tons of great food, gifts and prayer" at the baby shower.
"I sensed a nudge from the Lord," she said, "that He desires to use our
public prayer vigil -- and the prayers and fasting of all who join us
from home -- to pour out His mercy and grace" on all who are caught up
in the abortion
those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there
arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their
widows were neglected in the daily distribution.
— Acts 6:1
Father, in the Church's desire to engage our communities with the
gospel, let us gain wisdom from those who have gone before us and
cherish their experiences and perspectives. Help us to appreciate every
soul in the body of Christ and minister properly to everybody.
