Sanctity of Human Life Month

How can your church take a stand for life?  February is Sanctity of Human Life Month in the US.

Since 1983, Americans have observed Sanctity of Human Life Month as a way to celebrate the intrinsic value of all human life.

It’s also a month for pregnancy centers to share about the work they do to bring life-affirming resources to their communities and to empower women and men to choose life for their unborn children.

Yesterday was Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.  It is commemorated on the Sunday in January that falls closest to the day on which the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.

The pro-life organization CareNet has some suggestions on how your church can get involved in Sanctity of Human Life Month.

Another organization that plays a key role in Sanctity of Human Life Month is Focus on the Family.  You can download free resources and view special Sanctity of Human Life videos at Focus’ special pro-life website.
