“National Sanctity of Human Life Day” was announced today by president Bush. Reagan, Bush father and son made these annual proclamations, while Clinton did not. Will Obama? I doubt it.
All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique, and worthy of protection. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our country recognizes that each person, including every person waiting to be born, has a special place and purpose in this world. We also underscore our dedication to heeding this message of conscience by speaking up for the weak and voiceless among us.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 18, 2009, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies and to underscore our commitment to respecting and protecting the life and dignity of every human being.
This is a statement of consciousness, truth and allegiance to God, who is the giver of life. This is powerful.
We will have three very dramatic days this week:
Jan 18th, National Sanctity of Human Life Day
Jan 20th, Presidential Inauguration
Jan 22nd, March for life (on the Mall, Washington, DC)
