Jan. 21, 2018 is Sanctity of Life day, a reminder for all pro-life individuals to become more encouraged to take a stand against the killing of innocent babies in the womb.  A lot of news comes from Washington, but at this point no action.

 

If we are going to wait for the feds in Washington to make the first move, guess again. Today we have a president who has said many times, “Get a bill on my desk prohibiting abortion and I will sign it.” Some in Congress have indicated that passing a Life at Conception Act would reverse the Roe vs. Wade law coming from the Supreme Court, but still no action.

Regardless of what legislative party we support, abortion is not a political issue. It is an issue that involves everyone who believes that God created life and life begins at conception. We have to bombard our representatives and senators with calls and letters, let them know where we stand on life and hopefully get them excited about putting an end to abortion.
