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.

Planned Parenthood Violations 'No Surprise,' States Fr. Pavone
STATEN ISLAND, Ny.,Feb. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on a Birmingham, Alabama Planned Parenthood clinic being placed on probation by state health authorities for performing abortions on minors without parental consent in clear violation of the law and ignoring cases of possible child abuse.
"This may be news to many, but it's not news to us," Fr. Pavone said. "This is par for the course and we've been tracking it for years. It's time for the nation to wake up and realize that making abortion legal did not make it safe, and that in hundreds of facilities nationwide, Planned Parenthood is engaged in criminal activity and deserves to be shut down."
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro- life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
