Another subtle and simple line of profound meaning comes when Bilbo is stuck in the tunnel between the aperture (which has been blocked by stone) and the dragon's lair below. When all hope is lost and you can feel Bilbo's depression, he is given a grace of hope and exclaims:

"Where there is still life, there is hope!"

He triumphantly marches toward the dragon and frees himself and his friends.

I think this line is lesson that even in the darkness, where there this is still life, we must have hope, the God-given virtue of hope to act in faith. In the pro-life movement, no matter how dire the situation (or the cause of the pregnancy), if there is life in the womb... there is still hope.
