Video from Joni & Friends
"Sanctity of Life Sunday is a reminder that all life is valuable. Joni Eareckson Tada spotlights the fact that our abilities do not determine our value, but rather whose image we reflect. God has made every person in his image and that's what gives us all human dignity!
Sanctity of Life Sunday was established in 1984 to recognize the human dignity of unborn children. All these years later, it’s no longer only the unborn whose sanctity of life is questioned… it’s the elderly, those with catastrophic disabilities, people with psychiatric disorders, and more. There are even Christians who are questioning how and to what extent life is sacred.' from video introduction.
"On January 22, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation designating the third Sunday of January (or close to that) as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
Pastors, churches and life organizations across the United States use this day to bring awareness to the attacks that are daily waged against human life through the abortion industry.
One of the best ways we can protect unborn lives is by bringing into the light the darkness of abortion, and supporting local Pregnancy Help Organizations who daily reach women and families with messages of hope and life." from the website-
