What is National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday? In 1983, the Christian Action Council Education and Ministries Fund, which is today known as Care Net, asked President Ronald Reagan to create a special day to focus on the value of human life and the fundamental right to life, as recognized by the American Founding Fathers. Later that year, President Reagan issued a proclamation establishing a National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS). Since 1983, the SOHLS proclamation has also been issued by Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.
When is SOHLS? January is universally recognized as Sanctity of Human Life month and is held 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.
How can I get involved? Invite a speaker from the PCC to come share with your church the importance of SOHL. Our speakers will present the mission of this life-affirming ministry and often will share a client story. Presentations range from 3 -10 minutes and are tailored based on the audience.
