Proclamation on National Sanctity of Human Life Day, 2021

… Every human life is a gift to the world.  Whether born or unborn, young or old, healthy or sick, every person is made in the holy image of God

… The Almighty Creator gives unique talents, beautiful dreams, and a great purpose to every person

… we celebrate the wonder of human existence

… our resolve to build a culture of life where every person of every age is protected, valued, and cherished

… has resulted in the loss of more than 50 million innocent lives

… a powerful movement to awaken America’s conscience

… today, more than three out of every four Americans support restrictions on abortion

… took action to protect the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, and organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor

… When each person is treated as a beloved child of God, individuals can reach their full potential, communities will flourish

… we promise to continue speaking out for those who have no voice

… I ask every citizen of this great Nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen
