Greetings in Christ,
Sanctity of Life Sunday is on (DATE), and this year we will be dedicating time during the morning service for this essential day.
On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protect human life at every stage.
Churches continue to recognize the third Sunday of January each year as National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
