What is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday?
President Reagan established a National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday in 1983 to create a day to focus on the value of human life and fundamental right to life as recognized by the founding fathers of our country. SOHL Sunday is held each year on the Sunday in January closest to the day on which the infamous Roe v. Wade decision was handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 22, 1973. Many churches observe SOHL “Sunday” through a weekend or on a day that better suits their schedule.
Heartbeats provides bulletin inserts to be used on SOHL Sunday to area churches at no charge. We can provide useful resources to pastors and ministry leaders to make it easier to speak about the value of human life. Many churches do a Bottles for Life campaign in January to promote the sanctity of life. Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is an opportunity for our community to share about empowering women and men to choose life for their unborn children.
