This coming Sunday, January 22, marks 50 years since the landmark case, Roe v. Wade, was decided by the Supreme Court. This legalized abortion across the United States, costing millions of unborn lives. Last June, the Supreme Court released another landmark decision, Dobbs v. Jackson, overturning Roe v. Wade and sending the issue of abortion back to the states. While this was a major victory, there is still much to be done to recognize and protect the sanctity of human life beginning at conception.
In the face of this daunting fight, in 1984 President Reagan declared the Sunday closest to the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision "Sanctity of Human Life Sunday."
This Sunday, pause to remember the sanctity of each human life. Life is sacred and worth defending at all costs today and everyday. Every person, born and unborn, has inherent value, from conception to natural death.
