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.

Pro-Life Action League to Oppose New Bubble Zone Ordinance and Reveal Malpractice Lawsuits Against Near North Planned Parenthood
CHICAGO,Nov.16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pro-Life Action League announces a press conference and protest in front of the Planned Parenthood on 1200 N LaSalle Dr in Chicago, at 10 a.m., Tuesday, November 17, 2009.
Press Conference and Protest Details---
When: Tuesday, November 17, 2009, 10:00 a.m.

Wrongful death due to bleeding from a careless abortion procedure
Perforation of the uteri of several women during abortion procedures
Misdiagnosis of pregnancy and age of the unborn child
Careless performance of blood tests and follow- up care
