Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.

President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation on January 13th 1984, designating Sunday, January 22th 1984 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day, noting that it was the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion.

In the years since some presidents have issued a declaration, and some have not - based on their personal beliefs.

In the case of Roe v. Wade , the US Supreme Court struck down state laws restricting abortions during the first six months of pregnancy. In the following decades, the debate has continued to rage between those who believe a woman has a right to choose whether to continue a pregnancy and those who believe that aborting such a pregnancy is the murder of an unborn child.

The day is traditionally marked as a holy day by the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
