Life is valuable from womb to tomb! The unborn. Those living in poverty. The black man pulled over by the police. Adults and children sexually abused in human trafficking. The immigrant escaping gang violence. The terminally ill. The old and broken in the nursing home. Every life!
On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (In 1973, January 22 was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.)
And during his presidency, George W. Bush proclaimed, “Every life is valuable. Our society has a responsibility to defend the vulnerable and weak, the imperfect and even the unwanted. A generous society values all human life. A merciful society seeks to expand legal protection to every life . . . not just the healthy or the strong or the powerful.”

We’re pro-choice when it comes to grand larceny!
