On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
Sanctity of Human Life Week is a special event in which thousands of churches across the nation take time to recognize the value and sanctity of human life.
The Bible tells us that we are created and purposed from our mother's womb, but the dignity of life goes so far beyond that. We are called to be voices and advocates for all life, and especially for those who cannot speak for themselves.
When we choose to see people as God does, we are moved to love others in a way that honors our creator. Being pro-life is a worldview -a life view- that should transcend culture, class, race, age and opinion. From the formation of a child's first tiny cell, to life's final breath, all life has inherent dignity and value.
We will celebrate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday this Sunday the 15th. We will be reminded of the beauty and sanctity of all life that is created by God. This day will also begin our Baby Bottle Boomerang which helps support our local Pregnancy Care Center.
