Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday recognizes the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973.  This year it will be recognized on January 17, 2021.  CPC invites you to join with us we celebrate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday with prayer, practical action, and by sharing resources of hope and help.

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is a great way to partner with CPC.

In 2021 Sanctity of Human Life Sunday will be recognized on January 17. Sanctity of Human Life Sunday began in 1984 when then President Ronald Reagan designated January 22 be set aside to celebrate God’s gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit to protecting human life at every stage – from conception to natural death. This date was selected because on January 22, 1973 – the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the United States Supreme Court, making abortion legal in all 50 states.

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday continues to be recognized by churches on the third Sunday in January – and usually the Sunday closest to the date these court decisions were handed down. It is annually commemorated by thousands of churches and individuals who want to stand for Life.

On this page, we have brought together a number of resources to help your church highlight how abortion impacts our community. Please take a look at the selection below, including our 2021 Sanctity of Human Life Video that we encourage be shared with your church during service, through your website and social media.  We also have resources available to share with those women and men in your congregation who may be facing unplanned pregnancies or hurting from a past abortion.

If you are interested in having someone speak at your church, in person or through video (pre-recorded or zoom), please contact us to schedule a speaker.
