'Sanctity Sunday' adds another cause to life issue
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is coming this weekend, when churches are asked to focus on two issues of the life movement.
Life Matters Worldwide is the primary sponsor for the annual event, and LMW president Tom Lothamer says it's a call for the church to pray to end the termination of preborn babies, estimated to be 60 million since abortion was legalized in 1973.
"Some churches unfortunately don't even bring it up but many, many churches do," he says. "And it's through a message, maybe special music, a special testimony - that kind of thing - where they really want to highlight the sanctity of human life as children in the womb are image bearers of God."
