Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS) is celebrated each January on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the fateful Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in our nation.Since then, more than 58.5 million abortions have taken place in the U.S. The human lives lost to abortion exceed the number of people currently living in our Great Lakes Region!*
SOHLS is a day to acknowledge that every life matters. Your church or group can be a voice for the unborn by partnering with us. Participate in the Bottles for Babies campaign, host a First Choice for Women speaker, hold a baby shower, hand out ministry flyers or make a financial contribution.
First Choice exists to reach people who believe abortion is their best option, to educate these young women about their choices, to share the truth about the God’s Grace, and to support them through whatever decision they make, in a non-judgmental loving environment.
We do not receive any government funding and are completely dependent upon the prayer and financial support of individuals, businesses and churches to help us provide our life-affirming services free of charge.
Over 30 years ago, a group of 18 people from the Muncie area took a stand by providing the initial financial foundation for the pregnancy resource center formerly known as Heart to Heart. Today, many church congregations and organizations take a stand by getting involved with the First Choice through volunteer opportunities, financial support, events, baby bottle fundraisers, and recognizing Sanctity of Human Life during the month of January.
As a resource, posters and bulletin inserts and videos are offered at no charge and can be downloaded from the links below. In addition, our newsletters, are available under the “About Us” section of this website. First Choice for Women will also provide a speaker or representative for your church or organization.
