January is an important month for those who are passionate about protecting the sanctity of human life! There are many opportunities at the local, state, and national level to stand for life. January 22 marks the 45th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that forced the legalization of abortion in all 50 states. Pro-lifers use this tragic anniversary month to celebrate the lives of the unborn and to pay tribute to the millions of unborn babies who have been taken by abortion.
You can participate “virtually” or in person at the local, state or national levels through the following events taking place in January.
