Dear supporters of ______ Right to Life

On January 17, 2016, we will celebrate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SoHLS). SoHLS is a day for Americans to focus on the value of each and every human life. It is celebrated every year on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decisions Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which legalized abortion in every state for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.

President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation creating the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day in January 1984, and it included these words:

"We have been given the precious gift of human life, made more precious still by our births in or pilgrimages to a land of freedom. It is fitting, then, on the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that struck down State anti-abortion laws, that we reflect anew on these blessings, and on our corresponding responsibility to guard with care the lives and freedoms of even the weakest of our fellow human beings."

We invite you on Sunday, January 17, to remember the loss of more than 56 million unborn children since 1973 and help ______ Right to Life celebrate the precious gift of life for all.

Please join us (insert information about local events happening in your area)

For Life,

Today is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Today we remember the value of every human life, and also the tragic Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973 that stripped the legal protection and lives of 56 million children.

43 years. 56 million lives. This Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, commit yourself to doing something about the unimagineable loss of life in the womb. Every human life has value.
