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: The word you are looking for is "monster"
40 Days for Life starts in 377 cities this week, and sadly it begins in uncharted waters in the United States of America.
because of what is being said by fringe abortion advocates yelling in
the street, but because of what is being supported by elected governors
governors and senators are kind, tolerant and well-dressed. They are
smooth talkers and they want you, as an American, to know that even
though they are highly sophisticated, they are tender enough to make
sure a newborn baby is comfortable before they let the child die on a
table after a failed abortion.
you read that right. They promise that any newborn child born from a
failed abortion will be comfortable before making sure the child doesn’t
even make it through her first hour of life.
You are probably asking the same question I have asked myself: What kind of a person could stare at a newborn baby girl on a table crying and not give her medical treatment?
answers have been given, but all the proposed answers miss the severity
of the reality of what happens when an abortion fails.
baby was supposed to be killed and is now alive. He or she is on the
table, moving, crying, looking around. I have seen my seven children
come into the world; the last thing any halfway sane person who is
looking at the baby is thinking is “Let’s NOT give her what she needs.”
But, then again, my wife and I usually just have my sweet mother-in-law
in the delivery room and not Virginia Gov. Northam.
is the scene. We are all standing around looking at the baby girl on
the table. What the governors and senators are saying is at that
beautiful moment of humanity, they are numb to that baby girl. They have
no problem getting her comfortable and killing her.
So, what kind of a person supports this? The word you’re looking for is "monster."
a monster would let a baby die on a table. The sickness behind this
barbaric and ruthless act cannot be legitimized or labeled as an
acceptable “political viewpoint.” It is cold-blooded murder done to our
most innocent. I wouldn’t trust these politicians to watch my dogs
(although they would probably never let a puppy die on the table).
too often look down on other cultures who dehumanize a segment of the
population, but look at what we have become in the United States with
abortion. We have a large segment of elected officials who would refuse a
baby medical care after birth. Monsters indeed -- who the hell do we
think we are?
It was Flannery O’Connor who said, “In the absence of faith, we govern by tenderness. And tenderness leads to the gas chamber."
who live amidst the injustice are often the numbest to the gravity of
it. Yet, this wave of infanticide comes at a time when there is more
momentum in the pro-life movement than ever before. And I think the
monsters are helping wake up many who didn’t realize what is legal in
angry and frustrated at this situation, our response must be one of
courage, love, and fortitude. That is the only way to defeat such evil.
facilities have closed at a record pace the last six years, and the
abortion industry’s response is to push abortion up to birth and allow
any survivor to die on a table. This is not a time to be discouraged in
the face of such desperation; this is a time to act. So many people
think their voice doesn’t matter or that they can’t make a difference. I
am here to tell you that is far from the truth. I know because I have
seen the impact of simply showing up and praying.
date, we have saved more than 15,000 lives. And 186 abortion workers
have quit their jobs. One of them is being featured in a major motion
picture, Unplanned, opening March 29.
not throw your hands in the air or curse at your television. Let this
barbaric mentality motivate you to offer hope, healing, and medical
alternatives to women where you live. That is what is ending abortion at
the local level.
than 800,000 people have participated in 40 Days for Life around the
world and now they have more motivation than ever before to pray, fast,
and stand vigil for an end to abortion.
