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.

40 Days For Life: DAY 38: Twins saved!
Dear Deacon John,
"It wasn't a good day," said one of the 40 Days for Life team members in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
"It was an amazing day!"
"Not only did one mother choose life, but two," the volunteer said. "And it wasn't just two babies saved ... but three!"
When one of these moms was told she was pregnant with twins, she realized she couldn't go through with the abortion.
"Praise be to God," the team member said. The came woman out of the abortion center to tell the 40 Days for Life volunteers that "she had chosen life for her two precious children."
Just days after this happened, the Fayetteville team reported another mother of twins rejected abortion!!!
We've also heard of twins saved in Virginia Beach, Virginia and Dayton, Ohio. We are doubly thankful for this great news!
"Two precious babies were saved from abortion at the Savannah abortion clinic!" said one of the 40 Days for Life team members.
One of the stories involves a woman who arrived with her mother and boyfriend. She wanted the abortion, but her mom and the child's father were opposed.
After a sidewalk counselor spoke to the young woman, she began to cry. They accepted an invitation to visit the local pregnancy help center.
Twenty years earlier, that help center encouraged the young woman's mother to choose life for her daughter – yes, the very same daughter who, earlier that day, had been pondering an abortion of her own.
But she, too, chose life!
"God saved two generations!" the 40 Days for Life volunteer said. "We thank and praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy!
This is the 13th 40 Days for Life campaign in Manchester ... and in that time, volunteers report they have witnessed 87 babies saved from abortion at their vigil outside a very busy Marie Stopes facility.
Robert Colquhoun, 40 Days for Life's international campaign director, said there are fresh challenges during the current campaign.
"There is now a group of abortion escorts outside now, after Abortion Rights Ireland (a George Soros-funded group) organised a meeting," he said. "The Sister Supporter group have been presence this campaign."
Robert says the leadership team members "are doing a tremendous job and the volunteers have been doing amazingly well. May God bless their witness!"
You have heard it was said, ‘you shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.
— Matthew 5: 43-44
Heavenly Father, may we reflect your character of grace and kindness to those who hate us and curse us. Guard our hearts and our tongues as we respond in love to words and actions meant to rile us or cause us harm. Let others see the Hope that is Christ in all we say and do.
