In 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Today marks the 46th year since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the infamous Roe v. Wade decision.
Part of President Reagan's proclamation states:
"Much of the greatest suffering in our Nation's history — and, indeed, our planet's history — has been the result of disgracefully misguided attempts to dehumanize whole classes of people based on these immutable characteristics. We cannot let this shameful history repeat itself in new forms, and we must be particularly vigilant to safeguard the most vulnerable lives among us.
This is why we observe National Sanctity of Human Life Day: to affirm the truth that all life is sacred, that every person has inherent dignity and worth, and that no class of people should ever be discarded as 'non-human.'"
We strongly agree with President Reagan's proclamation. That's why Liberty Counsel is partnering with the National Pro-Life Center to hold a "Remembering the Unborn Memorial" today in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Three thousand flowers will be placed on the sidewalk in front of the Court to represent the 3,000 American babies that are killed every day by abortion. This staggering number represents not only the tragic loss of life but also a devastating number of wounded souls dealing with the lingering heartache that abortion leaves in its wake.
National polls show a steadily increasing majority of Americans oppose the Roe v. Wade decision and the so-called "right" to abortion on demand it supposedly codified, particularly regarding late-term abortions. Liberty Counsel has long been a leader in the battle to make the womb a safe place again.

+ + The case to challenge Roe v Wade
Liberty Counsel filed a powerful amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the Alabama law that prohibits dismemberment abortions of live unborn babies. This case presents a direct challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion ruling.
Although the Court of Appeals invalidated the Alabama law, it did so only because the judges said they were bound by the Supreme Court, which they noted created an "aberration of constitutional law" related to abortion. While disagreeing with the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals acknowledged it is not the Supreme Court.
The three-judge panel's decision reflected its reluctance to overturn the law, but its allegiance to its role as an intermediate appellate court under the authority of the Supreme Court's previous decisions. One judge expressly called on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Advancing the sanctity of human life is one of Liberty Counsel's core missions and we will stand in defense of every pro-life defender facing attacks by pro-abortion advocates!
