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.
Today, the third Sunday in January is recognized as the official Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. For 2022, Sanctity of Human Life will fall on January 20th.
How can you participate?
– Make plans to recognize January 22nd as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. If you can’t do it on the 22nd, choose another Sunday in January.
