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 13: "We didn't do it...because you were here"
With more than 50 million lives lost to abortion every year, what difference can one hour of prayer possibly make?
For a baby whose life hangs in the balance, it can mean EVERYTHING. Since September 26, we know of 101 lives saved from abortion through YOUR prayers, fasting, community outreach, and peaceful vigil.
Walnut Creek, California
"We didn't do it...because you were here," said the driver of a car occupied by a couple who had gone to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. The expectant mother then jumped out of the car, smiling and giggling, and hugged one of the vigil participants.
vigil participant gave her a baby gift, and when the baby's father
shared his financial anxiety, volunteers provided information on
pregnancy help centers and housing resources.
Sometimes a picture says it all. Dan in Milwaukee reports four babies saved from abortion in one day!
warriors in Minatitlan sprung into action when they met a young woman
named Joselyn, who was planning to have an abortion.
Working with the local pregnancy help center, they made sure Joselyn was able to see an ultrasound. But it was only after Joselyn joined the local campaign team and prayed at the vigil site that she chose life for her baby.
if an abortion-bound woman doesn't stop to talk with vigil
participants, their public witness still gives her something to consider
in those precious minutes before the abortion is performed.
Savannah, one woman refused to talk with 40 Days for Life sidewalk
counselors...but 30 minutes later, she came out and went to the
pregnancy help center. Another woman spent TWO HOURS inside the abortion
facility before she came out to get help from vigil participants. Both
mothers chose life!
A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation.
Father, we thank you for caring about each of us so deeply. Help us to
see and know you as our Father in heaven each and every day of our
lives. Your loving hand also rests on every child today carried in its
mother’s womb. May they be born into this world and come to know fully
and personally your endless love.
