Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
in Your Church

SAVE THE DATE: Sunday, January 21, 2018



On Jan. 22, 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated the third Sunday of January as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Churches and pastors utilize this day to raise awareness about what the Bible teaches about the sacred gift of human life, how life is under attack, and what the church can do protect the sanctity of life.

Because the Jan. 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision falls on a Sunday this year (it is the fourth Sunday), the Southern Baptist Convention has chosen to honor the Sanctity of Human Life on that date.

Louisiana Right to Life encourages your church to participate in Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. We have provided resources on this site to make your observance of SOHLS even more special. Please take advantage of these materials, especially by requesting and distributing our free SOHLS Cards.

Scripture Verse

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart."
- Jeremiah 1:5a


The sanctity of human life in Louisiana is in grave danger. All in the name of profit, abortion facilities right here in our state extinguish the lives of thousands of unborn babies each year. And Planned Parenthood, caught on video discussing its practice of selling baby body parts after abortion, has expanded in Louisiana.

But we know the truth: God has a plan for every life.

Together, we can take a stand for all life, from conception until natural death!
