The president of the oldest and largest pro-life organization in the United States hopes pastors will pick up the mantle and lead Americans in taking a moment to think about abortion.
Before leaving office, President Trump proclaimed January 22 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day, pointing to the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that overruled the laws of all 50 states and legalized abortion on demand nationwide.
"Since that time, more than 62 million unborn children have been killed by abortion, and millions of women have been wounded and are grieving the loss of their child," Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee tells One News Now. "Millions of those women have sought refuge in alcohol and illegal drugs and [have] developed other psychological problems, some of them not surfacing until 10 years after terminating their child in the womb."
Even so, some churches fail to proclaim the sanctity of human life. But stressing that every human life is a creation of God, Tobias hopes that changes soon.
"Every single life is known by God and is celebrated by God when [a child] comes into this world at the moment of conception or fertilization," the pro-lifer asserts. "It would be entirely appropriate, and it would be very, very helpful if pastors and churches would talk about the sanctity of human life."
Tobias hopes pastors and the public in general will recognize that abortion is the greatest holocaust the world has ever seen, and certainly the greatest holocaust America has ever seen.
