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 30: TWINS!

After all, two babies mean double the feedings, double the diapers, and double the chaos. But the reality is that when an abortion-minded woman finds a second baby in her womb, she often finds double the love in her heart!
The presence of twins instantly conveys the humanity of the babies and leads their mothers to choose life.

those prayer warriors asked whether she knew how far along she was in

"Yes! I had an ultrasound, and they scheduled me today for an abortion," she said. "I was going to get rid of them...but I just couldn't do it!"
young mom's friend browsed a pamphlet she received from the 40 Days for
Life volunteers and remarked, "Your babies have fingernails!"
The prayer warriors were ecstatic. "I
will NEVER forget that moment, that line, and that realization they
both had that these babies were growing inside her. It humanized her
babies for her."

Toni in Little Rock sent a desperate email pleading for prayer.

appointment," Toni wrote. "She DOES NOT want the abortion, but she
feels that she has no support. Please pray for her."
Those prayers were answered as the mother chose life.

her to see that she has the things she needs," Toni said. "We will also

her know about the pregnancy help center across the street. "That's your
son or daughter, and we are here to help!"
When Lisa left the abortion facility, September resumed the conversation, asking how her baby was doing.
"I asked my fiancé, and he wanted to keep them...I'm having TWINS!"
The expectant mother's face broke into a radiant smile as she hugged September--both women filled with joy.
Just four days later, volunteers in Milwaukee helped save ANOTHER set of twins from abortion!
it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the babe
leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then
she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For indeed, as soon as the
voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb
open my eyes to your presence in the life of every child. Open my heart
to joy in the birth of every child, a birth that reflects the joy of
your own birth in Bethlehem. As you shared life in the womb of Mary, so
