Forty-seven years have passed since the US Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand on January 22, 1973. Since the Roe v. Wade decision, over 59,000,000 innocent human lives have been aborted in our nation. That means every 24 seconds, for the last 47 years, an unborn baby has legally been killed in the womb in the United States.
That statistic is so shocking it’s mind-numbing; what can we do about it? One thing many churches do is recognize the third Sunday in January as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. In 2020, the date will be January 19, next Sunday. Help your church out by suggesting ways they can commemorate the day and proclaim the biblical truth that all human life is sacred from the moment of conception.
Though, praise the Lord, the number of abortions has been declining in recent years, as long as there is even one innocent life that is taken by abortion, the Body of Christ cannot rest. As believers, there is much we can do to soften hearts and change minds about this crucial issue, and Living Waters offers several resources that make it very easy for you to share the truth, and the gospel, with those who need to hear it.
Please make use of these resources—not just in observance of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, but all month long. And then don’t stop there; they’re sharable every day of the year, and you never know whose life you may touch by simply sharing a link, a DVD, or a tract.
If you have more time, show this very powerful, 33-minute video. And then share it around the world, where it’s been seen by over 5.8 million people. Also available on DVD, ideal for handing out to students at malls and on school campuses.
This life-changing, two-part DVD study will teach you effective principles to change the hearts of the lost toward abortion and toward God.

“Life in the Womb” Booklet
Perfect for handing out at high schools and colleges as well as outside abortion clinics, this tract presents the facts of fetal development from a secular source, which the lost may find more credible than a typical pro-life brochure. It also includes the gospel, and a QR image so readers can immediately view “180” on their smart phones, and testimonies of pregnant women who decided not to abort after viewing “180.”
Show this moving 5-minute “spoken word” poem video in church services, classes, and small groups, and share it on social media.

“Abortion Mill Posters”
We have been very encouraged to see that people have been using our “Life Is Beautiful” sign and have expanded to add a Spanish version (with Spanish text and a beautiful Hispanic baby), and have also added a second poster. The new poster says, “We Will Adopt Your Baby! Please Talk to Us” (we have versions with a black, white, and Hispanic baby). These engaging signs encourage those heading toward an abortion clinic (and anyone else) to pause and really think. It also invites them to speak with you. This simple tool can lead to a life being saved and is available as a no-cost download.
Please consider forwarding this page to your pastor. Many of these resources may be useful in next weekend’s “Sanctity of Life Sunday” service.
