It's Sanctity of Human Life week!
The National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday 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.
I used to work at a pregnancy clinic. And I saw lots of pregnant and confused teens, single moms and parents who just weren't ready for a baby. They would walk in the doors with lots of sadness and confusion often upset and in distress. Most would walk out encouraged and hopeful that God had them in the palm of his hand and that things would be alright. So this subject is precious to me.
When an abortion minded girl comes in, sees that little beating heart through an ultrasound, and is brought to tears because she had no idea that the pregnancy was really a real living person, it's an amazing pivotal moment, usually a life-giving moment.
Life is a gift.
Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of Lights with whom there is not changing or shifting shadow. James 1:17
Take a few minutes to watch this video that I found from Valley View Baptist Church.
It's simply amazing to watch!
Ps- tell your parents 'thank you' too!
