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 1: 75% no-show rate!
Rev. Mr. John P.,
40 Days for Life starts TODAY in 377 cities around the globe...
...and today we are in uncharted waters as politicians calmly and coldly advocate for infanticide. It's unprecedented.
This is NOT the campaign to sit on the sidelines.
radical onslaught against born and unborn children is a clear sign that
Planned Parenthood and its allies are desperate. But it's also a
reminder that our work is not done yet.
Britton, Sue Thayer, and I recorded a new video to put the current
state of the abortion crisis into historical perspective and to
encourage YOU as you hit the streets these next 40 days. Check it out:
Days for Life Campaign Director Steve Karlen just visited the busiest
late-term abortion facility in Las Vegas for the city's first-ever
a daunting location, and the facility built an eight-foot fence to
inhibit sidewalk counselors. One of the center's abortionists has a
disturbing record of complications--including a woman who died due to a "negligent performance of pregnancy termination."
"Las Vegas is known as 'Sin City'," Steve said. "But as Scripture reminds us, where sin abounds--grace abounds all the more."
Indeed, lives are being saved. A pregnancy center next door to the abortion facility recently celebrated its 30,000th baby saved from abortion, and the director told Steve that the campaign "definitely, DEFINITELY" makes a difference.
opening kickoff event featured strong turnout spanning Christian
denominations. About a third of the attendees said it was their first
time getting involved in 40 Days for Life!
Campaign Strategist Chris Davis kicked off the campaign in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
weather was cold, but spirits were high as Chris shared a personal
testimony about his own pre-conversion crisis pregnancy. "I was 38,
feeling that I should have known better," Chris said. "I show women on
the sidewalk a picture of my son and encourage them that if I could
choose life at age 38, they can do it at 28 or 18 or whatever age."
speaking, Chris was approached by a now-elderly man whose crisis
pregnancy came at 59 years old. He and his young-adult daughter attended
the rally together.
the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the
people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the
children and the infants at the breast … Let the priests, the ministers
of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people."
we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to
carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we
go forth and proclaim Your truth.
