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.
Sanctity of Life Sunday is January 17 and it is such an important day to Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services! We would love to celebrate life with you at your church.
If you would like to invite a speaker from BCHFS to come to your church or gathering to talk about the importance of Sanctity of Life, contact us today at 618-382-4164 Ext. 5103.
