Trump declares January 22 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day

Tuesday, January 19, 2021



This is the fourth consecutive year the president has recognized National Sanctity of Human Life Day in January. January 22 is the 48th anniversary of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which declared abortion a national right.

In the proclamation, Trump called the ruling "flawed" and praised those who are leading "a powerful movement to awaken America's conscience and restore the belief that every life is worthy of respect, protection, and care."
