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 9: Pro-abortion universities

since 40 Days for Life started, it has encouraged young people to get
involved – even at leadership levels. We're seeing that again during
this campaign in Marietta, with Rachel Guy – the 19-year-old local

that are quite impressed with Rachel’s efforts.
Marietta team says Rachel's enthusiasm has inspired many new volunteers
to pray at the vigil, as she is convinced in her heart that God can use
their prayers to see that the abortion center closes.
One volunteer said if Rachel "is this energized about ending abortion, then we all need to be."
Dallas 40 Days for Life campaign has always had a high level of youth
participation, often with entire schools coming out to the sidewalk to
pray for an end to abortion.
local leaders in Dallas offered "a big shout out" to the Highlands
School for going out for an hour of prayer at the abortion facility

the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the
glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Father, I thank you for your love and saving grace in Christ Jesus.
Help us to realize every day the great blessing we have in our Savior. I
pray that we will rise every morning with excitement and zeal, looking
forward to walking another day in your footsteps fully knowing that you
continue to dwell among us.
