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.
When 40 Days for Life volunteers in Arizona bring an umbrella to the vigil, it's usually to shield themselves from the sun.
But when 40 Days for Life Outreach Director Sue Thayer visited kickoff events across the state, vigil participants brought umbrellas for a very different reason:torrential downpours and flash flooding--in Phoenix!
"We got the worst of the rain that day!" said Nancy, the Phoenix campaign leader. "But brave souls came out. I really put everything in God’s hands and said, 'God knows what He is doing!'”
Whether it's a deluge in the desert or the snow, ice, and freezing temperatures of winter, inclement weather can be a blessing in disguise.
Your willingness to stand and pray in the elements is a powerful sign to your community and to abortion-bound moms. That's why more lives are saved at 40 Days for Life vigils when the weather is bad.
Warm, sunny weather has returned to Phoenix. But much of the rest of the 40 Days for Life world is still dealing with difficult conditions.
Prayer warriors in Munich battled the cold, layering on parkas, scarves, and hats.
"It's very cold in Munich," wrote Sanela. "But we don't give up."
Not only is her team persevering; it's growing!
"We've got new people praying," Sanela continued. "A new campaign has started very well."
Lansing opened the "spring" vigil with a snowstorm. But that didn't stop families and groups of friends from hitting the sidewalks to pray for an end to abortion.
"Carol, Veronica and Laura are not afraid of the cold," wrote the Lansing team.
Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
— Luke 1:30-33
Heavenly Father, you have made the womb of each woman a very special place. Help us to hold fast to the sanctity of this first home of humanity, remembering the wonderful mystery, that God inhabited the womb of a young woman and came forth as the savior and deliverer of the world.

that is pretty obnoxious, not to mention offensive.

As SCOTUS Prepares to Hear Huge Abortion Case, Missouri Shows Benefits from Hospital Privilege Law: Only 7 Abortions There This Year, Gov. Says
St. Louis, MO – Gov. Mike Parson is proud of his state’s pro-life accomplishments, as he should be. His state has only one abortion facility left, Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood located in St. Louis — and it is facing impending closure due to a series of botched and mishandled abortions that caused serious injuries to at least four women.
Missouri is a national leader when it comes to passing laws that protect women and their unborn babies from predatory and dangerous abortion practices. Despite frequent legal challenges, these state laws have mostly held up under Constitutional scrutiny.
That includes one similar to the Louisiana law that is being challenged at the U.S. Supreme Court next week in June Medical Services LLC v. Gee, which requires abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges. This law has had a tremendous impact in Missouri.
