Sanctity of Human Life
January 2017 marks the 33rd anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s Proclamation for National Sanctity of Life Day. The third Sunday in January has officially been established as the day to commemorate the unborn and voiceless.
Last weekend, Go Mobile For Life president Scott Scharpen gave a sermon on abortion (to watch click HERE) in memory of the 60,000,000 babies who have died in the United States since the Roe v. Wade decision on January 22, 1973.
Each one of these lives lost should matter to us and that’s why President Reagan instituted Sanctity of Human Life Day to “give thanks for the gift of life, and to reaffirm our commitment to the dignity of every human being and the sanctity of each human life.”
Let us fan the flame of desire in speaking out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. May we truly be unified in our cause to defend–through prayer and fasting, through proactive service, and through financial support—the right to life!
“We have been given the precious gift of human life, made more precious still by our births in or pilgrimages to a land of freedom. It is fitting, then, on the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that struck down State anti-abortion laws, that we reflect anew on these blessings, and on our corresponding responsibility to guard with care the lives and freedoms of even the weakest of our fellow human beings.”—President Ronald Reagan, January 13, 1984
“Abortion isn’t so much about a woman having choice — but a woman feeling like she has no choice.”—Ann Voskamp, A Holy Experience, 2013
