Sanctity of Human Life
Jan 19 all-day

Baptist Children's Home and Family Services | Sanctity of Life Logo

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 protecting human life at every stage.

Each January we recognize Sanctity of Human Life.  We recognize the impact of the legalization of abortion in the hearts and lives of individuals and families both inside the walls of our churches, in our communities, and throughout our nation.

One component of the ministry of Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services is to partner with churches, providing resources and support to inform congregations of Biblical truth specific to the value of human life.

Please give us a call to let us know how BCHFS can help you as we celebrate the gift of human life together!
