This weekend, many churches around the country will be observing Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Of course, the lives of the unborn are to be valued and defended throughout the year, but collectively setting this Sunday aside helps to make a statement about what we value as Christians.
It is fitting that this is also the weekend Americans honor Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who valued and defended human life until his was taken. The many parallels between civil rights and pro-life advocacy are stirring; but it should suffice to say, if we believe that all men are created equal and that all therefore have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we cannot ignore those whom God is wonderfully knitting together in the womb (Ps 139:13).
In the ERLC video below, Russell Moore further illuminates why it is so important that Christians stand for the unborn.
