Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.  You saw me before I was born… (Ps. 139:15-16a NLT).

Life made in the image of God is a fundamental human right that begins at conception. This God-given right, enshrined in our Declaration of Independence, has been denied to approximately 55 million Americans since 1973.

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand during all nine months of pregnancy. One Sunday in January is set aside to remember the lives lost, and to declare our renewed dedication to respecting the right to life of the unborn. More than 1.2 million Americans are lost each year to abortion and the lives and hearts of countless women and families have been destroyed in the process. On Sanctity of Life Sunday, advocates for life are coming together to declare that there is hope for change and healing.

Pro-Life Action Steps

You can make a difference for Life!

    Pray that dignity of every human life will be respected and protected – at every age and stage of life from conception to natural death (Prov. 24:11-12).

Stay Informed about Threats to the God-Given Right to Life – the websites of Alliance Defending Freedom, Charlotte Lozier Institute, Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, March for Life, Americans United for Life, and other pro-life groups have a wealth of information and pro-life resources.

Take Action Make an impact…for Life!

  1. Urge your local, state, and federal representatives to protect the sanctity of life by continuing efforts to defund Planned Parenthood; place common-sense restrictions on abortion (particularly late-term abortion); and protect the conscience rights of healthcare professionals, business owners, and religious institutions.
  2. Educate yourself on Pro-Life arguments: read the best arguments from science, the law, and women’s rights to advance the pro-life case against abortion to your friends, family and neighbors. To find out more about how to promote the pro-life cause in your daily life, check out https://lozierinstitute.org/ ; http://www.adflegal.org/issues/sanctity-of-life/overview ; http://www.aul.org/ ; www.FRC.org/life.
  3. Support a Pregnancy Care Center in your area. Grace Community Church supports Safe Harbor Pregnancy Medical Center in Pensacola. Safe Harbor offers free crisis pregnancy counseling, free ultrasounds, parenting classes, maternity and baby care items, and post-abortion counseling in a loving, non-judgmental, environment. Those who come in contact with Safe Harbor are also joyfully presented with the truth of the Gospel. Safe Harbor is currently in need of pregnancy counseling volunteers (extensive training provided). To contact Safe Harbor, visit www.916safe.org or call (850) 439-2511.
