Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

This Sunday is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday! 

Every year we recognize the passing of the Roe v. Wade court case on January 22, 1973. That was when abortion was legalized in this country. Since 1973 over 55 million lives have been ended prematurely by abortion. Many cities do a “March for Life” either on the 21st or the 22nd of January to gather and pray for God's mercy on our nation, for the end of abortion, and for healing for those who have been affected by abortion. To find a March for Life near you, type “March for Life” and the name of your city into your search engine (e.g., Google).

Norma McCorvey AKA Jane Roe is now pro-life and is working with Operation Rescue in California to overturn Roe v. Wade. Here is a commercial of hers:

My Mom, Brenda MacMenamin, co-sponsored the Personhood Florida amendment.  This is a petition to amend the Florida constitution to define the pre-born, elderly, and disabled as "persons" so that they have the right to life.  Florida needs  676,811 valid signed petitions in order to be put on the ballot.

Brenda MacMenamin on Wall Builders Live:
Guest, Brenda MacMenamin, tells us about an amazing opportunity for students in Florida to receive high school and college credit and scholarships. A Scholarship is rewarded to students who get enough signatures on a Florida personhood amendment petition. The amendment would place state-constitutional protection on the unborn in Florida. Not in Florida? There are other similar opportunities in other states. Listen to find out how you can get involved!

If you do not live in Florida check out PersonhoodUSA to find out what is going on in your state!

The Pro-Life movement has grown with the young people of America.  I would attribute that greatly to the wide use of ultrasounds and the posting of sonograms on social media networks.  Young people are seeing life in the womb on a regular basis and it has become undeniable that little ones in the womb are indeed persons.

Here's a scripture for the young people, and very fitting for those who stand for life!

Jeremiah 1:4-10:

4Now the word of the LORD came to me saying,

5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
And before you were born I consecrated you;
I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

6Then I said, “Alas, Lord GOD!
Behold, I do not know how to speak,
Because I am a youth.”

7But the LORD said to me,
“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
Because everywhere I send you, you shall go,
And all that I command you, you shall speak.

8“Do not be afraid of them,
For I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD.

9Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me,
“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.

10“See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms,
To pluck up and to break down,
To destroy and to overthrow,
To build and to plant.”
