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 CMMB: What will happen to Faith's children?
Faith holds her nine-month-old baby Rose in her arms.
"Right now, we are surviving by the mercy of God's love."
with her family in a very remote and impoverished village in Kenya.
Last year, when she was pregnant with her seventh child, her husband
became very ill. They used the little money they had to get him
treatment, but in the end, it wasn't enough. He died weeks before the
birth and never got to meet his baby girl, Rose.
Overcome with grief, Faith said through
tears, "I don't know what I will do. My children are hungry and sick. We
are so far from the hospital and I spent so much of the little we had
trying to help my husband get well. Now, I spend most of my time trying
to find food for my children. Right now we only eat once a day. What
will happen to them?"

"If today I can get a donkey I would work tirelessly for my children without depending on anyone else." - Faith
access to enough food, safe water and regular health check-ups, Faith's
children are all at risk of becoming malnourished and sick. For her
youngest children, like baby Rose, 2-year-old Judy, and 4-year-old
Lucia, the impact could be devastating and irreversible.
Faith wants her children to be healthy and happy and to be able to
provide for them. But for vulnerable families living in extreme poverty,
like Faith's, the loss of a spouse is a challenge that can seem
impossible to overcome, with dire consequences for the entire family.
You can help. A gift of $100, $200, $500, or any amount, will mean improved access to nutrition, quality healthcare, and medicines for vulnerable mothers and children. Your compassion and generosity can offer relief for families like Faith's who are living in extreme poverty.
