On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God’s gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protecting human life at every stage.
This year for Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, Redeemer Church captured the stories of people right in our own community who experienced abortions. While each person’s story is different, all were able to find healing and freedom through Jesus Christ!
To commemorate last year’s SOHL Sunday, Redeemer’s film crew created the award-winning video, Kailee’s Story.
When Kailee found out she was pregnant at the age of 18, she was addicted to drugs and dating a drug dealer. Today she is free and serving God with victory and great joy right here at Redeemer Church. She has shared her captivating and moving story with hundreds of people in many venues. It is her dream to glorify God and be a voice in this pro-life generation; exposing the lies women and men believe about abortion for such a time as this!
