The proclamation

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.

Life Sunday

The day is now commonly known as Life Sunday. Every year Pastors and people in the faith community come together to uphold the Sanctity of Human Life in their churches.

  • First Coast Women’s Services has five centers and a mobile unit that sees more than 5,600 client visits per year. Last year 1,000 babies who would have been aborted were saved.
  • An average of more than 17 babies is aborted in our city every day.
  • No matter how abortion-minded a mother is, she will change her mind and choose life 83% of the time if she comes to us first.
  • If a woman considering abortion sees her baby on an ultrasound, the likelihood of her choosing life for her baby goes from 40% to 80%.
  • If a man sees his baby on the Ultrasound 98% of the time he will choose to support the pregnancy.


First Coast Women’s Services is partnering with pastors like you to help save lives in North Florida to end abortion by helping us continue to offer services that support women, men, and families facing unplanned pregnancies. Would you prayerfully consider holding a Life Sunday event at your church during January?

What You as A Pastor Can Do:

  • Place free Bulletin Inserts in your church bulletin (Bulletin Order Form)
  • Play a video during your service, promoting the sanctity of human life. (Video)
  • Ask small groups to sponsor a baby shower for our mothers to be. (Baby Shower Items List)
  • Ask your congregation to take a life offering that would help provide a sonogram and services to help remove the barriers that would cause a woman to choose abortion. (Ways to Give)
  • Set up an FCWS life Sunday table in your church lobby or foyer
  • Promote volunteering at one of the centers (Ways to Volunteer)
  • Invite a member of the FCWS leadership team to share a message at your church.
  • Join us for our SOHL Prayer events at each center location.
  • Download and share our Recent Statistics with your congregation (Recent Statistics)

This battle for life is one that we can win if we all join together. We look forward to you and your church joining us in the collaborative effort to SAVE and change lives!
