RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that January 22, 2021, be formally acknowledged as National Sanctity of Life Day.

Whereas the dignity of every human life, both born and unborn, must be protected as reflected in our Nation’s core founding principles, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness;

Whereas Congress must continue to morally object to the establishment of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973, and mourns the over 60,000,000 lives lost since the legalization of abortion in the United States; and

Whereas 70 percent of Americans, including nearly half who identify as pro-choice, want significant restrictions on abortion: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives—

(1)

recognizes the heroic work of pregnancy care centers in our communities in their endeavors to support mothers as they choose life, and the child after they are born;

(2)

supports the designation of National Sanctity of Life Day; and

(3)

reaffirms the commitment to safeguard the precious gift of life at every stage, from conception to natural death.
