Join FCWS & churches across the First Coast in praying and spreading awareness for LIFE this upcoming January!
What is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday?
President Ronald Reagan issued a Presidential proclamation on January 13, 1984, designating Sunday, January 22, 1984, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. The designated day was in opposition to the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which the Supreme Court issued a ruling that gave women the option to abort their unborn babies.
Though we are joyful that Roe was overturned on June 24th, 2022 the fight is still very active as decisions on abortion have now become a State issue. Abortion is still legal in Florida until 15 weeks, and we ask you to continue to join in us prayer for abortion to end in our lifetime in Florida.
Want to Get Involved?
First Coast Women’s Services is partnering with pastors like YOU to help save lives in North Florida by continuing to offer services that support women, men, and families facing unplanned pregnancies.
