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 Activists to Display 1,000,000 Pennies in Front of the White House to Speak Out Against Taxpayer Funded Abortions in Health Care
WASHINGTON,Jan. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Groups to remind President Obama that abortion is not health care and that 71% of Americans oppose tax dollars being used to pay for and subsidize abortion.
The display is a teaching moment for the President to learn that "not one penny of public money should be spent to destroy and diminish human life through abortion and that human rights begin in the womb."
The pennies were purchased with money donated by people of good will from all across America who believe that health care should be about compassion and healing not violence and suffering.
A news conference will be held at the display on Thursday, January 21 at 1:00 P.M.
The location is1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in front of the White House by Lafayette Park.
The 1,000,000 penny display is part of national campaign called "Abortion is Not Health Care."
