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.

NARAL's 'Hall of Fame' Reveals Their Shame
WASHINGTON,Dec. 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- NARAL thinks that late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart deserves an award for barely keeping his failing abortion business running in spite of Operation Rescue's "Keep it Closed" campaign. The militant abortion group has nominated Carhart for their 2009 "Hall of Fame."
But Operation Rescue says that the aging feminist group had to do some serious "spin doctoring" to find anything but shame in Carhart's seedy abortion operation, which is currently under investigation by the Attorney General's office and the State Department of Health.
"It is hard to believe that even radical abortion proponents would do anything but slink away in shame from Carhart and his disreputable and shoddy abortion business," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "It is shameful that NARAL would endanger women by misleading them about Carhart to advance their political agenda. If they truly cared about women, they should be warning women to stay away from him."
Events generated by Operation Rescue's campaign prompted several of Carhart's own employees to come forward to tell The Omaha World-Herald of illegal practices and dangerous conditions at Carhart's Bellevue, Nebraska, abortion clinic, including allegations that drugs were missing and surgical instruments were filthy. Three of these women have submitted sworn affidavits detailing their allegations to the Nebraska Attorney General.
NARAL also neglected to mention other shame-worthy Carhart news:
· Carhart admits that his Bellevue abortion clinic does not show a profit and that he has failed to draw more than a small fraction George Tiller's late-term abortion business to his Nebraska clinic.
· Operation Rescue documented that Carhart was responsible for most of the frequent abortion injuries that required emergency hospitalization in Kansas, including the third-trimester abortion death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert.
