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 5: The next 7 days
Dear Deacon John,
Tomorrow we have some inspiring news coming ... so watch your inbox! But first I have a question:
Have you found your closest 40 Days for Life campaign?
Don’t sit this one out!
Can’t go to a vigil? You can still help save a life ... and we tell you how in a new episode of the 40 Days for Life podcast.
you haven't signed up yet, make a commitment to go out over the next 7
days. Going out and praying is what makes the difference and saves lives from abortion.
Do you have an hour over the next 7 days?
is so much momentum! I just returned from the kickoff event in Spokane,
Washington after speaking at their first campaign 10 years ago in the
spring of 2008.
Kickoff events have been happening all week and we have seen great media coverage, support from clergy ... and lives saved -- a great report on that is coming tomorrow!
Today we start with a place that is not cold ... but is making a huge impact.
Phoenix, Tempe and Glendale Arizona
Phoenix-area campaigns joined together to start this 40 Days for Life
campaign ... with help from Catholic Bishop Thomas Olmsted (center) and
40 Days for Life board chair Matt Britton (third from left).
"We had a blessed night full of encouragement and hope to lead the good fight for life," said Nancy, the Phoenix coordinator.
the leader in Tempe, said all three campaigns "were challenged to
invoke the power of prayer to confront societal evils and stand in
peaceful, public witness against the atrocity of abortion."
was a wonderful blessing to be gathered in prayer," added Lisa, the
coordinator of the Glendale campaign. "Let us continue to go in prayer
to end the violence of abortion knowing that the Lord is with us."
Newburgh, New York
The Newburgh team is on board for its eleventh 40 Days for Life vigil.
the campaign kickoff, one of the Newburgh leaders said "it was a
blessing to be led in prayer and hear the Word of God from Bishop
Dominick Lagonegro from the Catholic archdiocese and Pastor Eric Loyd
from Valley Bible Baptist Church."
Kickoff attendees were invited to "prayerfully consider coming out to pray and stand peaceful witness at Planned Parenthood."
King will answer and say to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as
you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me."
and merciful Father, we renew our dedication to defending the unborn
and all whose right to life is compromised by our godless society's
selfish lack of concern. Free us from our own failures and sins so that
we will be truly pro-life in every area of our lives.
