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 3: Fake news in Great Britain
Dear Deacon John,
That's how the British media has labeled your vigil presence in their headline news. The only problem is ... none of it is true!
One British paper quoted a spokesman for the BPAS abortion center in Portsmouth: "They pray loudly and force leaflets upon people. I felt uncomfortable, angry, and safety-conscious."
A BPAS staff member in Doncaster told another media outlet, "It was provocative and intimidating."
photo above, from 40 Days for Life in Norwich, England, is a fairly
typical scene. A picture is worth a thousand talking points.
Don't these people look scary to you? Especially the signs offering free help :)
The abortion industry in Britain – and elsewhere, frankly – just wants you to go home ... because 40 Days for Life is working.
Right now, England, Canada
and Scotland are trying to destroy freedom of speech – and silence even
the quietest pro-life whisper. We cover their efforts in this 40 Days for Life podcast episode: "Aborting Free Speech."
Of course, Christ told us to expect this – that we would be falsely accused of all sorts of evil when acting in His name.
So just keep praying! Lives are at stake! As the Lord said, "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven" (Matthew 5:12).

85 faithful volunteers – including members of Pro Bikers for Life –
helped launch the 40 Days for Life campaign outside Planned Parenthood
Michael, the local campaign coordinator, called it a "great day."
gathering at a local church, where the bikers gave a moving talk and
showed a video about their involvement in previous 40 Days for Life
vigils, the group processed to Planned Parenthood and prayed there for
more than an hour.
the 40 Days for Life vigil started in Subotica, the campaign's
spiritual advisor asked God's blessing on all the volunteers. The
volunteers, in turn, wanted to extend that blessing "to all passers-by,
to all hospital staff – and to the whole city!"
of the Subotica leaders said if you want to do something for the Lord
this Lent, "come and join us for an hour for the right cause. This is
time that God has given us, and we will it use wisely. We are waiting
I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than
food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the
air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your
heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Loving heavenly Father, help us to see the worth of all human beings by
the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also
the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so
precious to you.
