Liberty Counsel is partnering with the National Pro-Life Center to hold a “Remembering the Unborn Memorial” on Tuesday, January 22, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Three thousand flowers will be placed on the sidewalk in front of the Court at 12 p.m. to represent the American babies that are killed every day by abortion.
January 22 is designated as the National Sanctity of Human Life Day and marks the 46th year since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, the infamous abortion opinions that opened the doors to killing pre-born babies for any reason and at any stage of development. Since that tragic day in 1973, approximately 60 million innocent children have been brutally killed by abortion.
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Part of the proclamation states: “I call upon the citizens of this blessed land to gather on that day in homes and places of worship to give thanks for the gift of life, and to reaffirm our commitment to the dignity of every human being and the sanctity of each human life.”
“January 22 is a tragic day in American history and the ‘Remembering the Unborn Memorial’ honors those precious babies that are brutally killed by abortion every day,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “We cannot escape the consequences of this human genocide unless we stop the slaughter and repent of this terrible sin. Abortion is outright rebellion against God, the author of human life. Abortion kills innocent children and leaves emotional scars on mothers, fathers, and families. We will continue fighting the battle to make the womb a safe place again,” said Staver.
