Protestant churches in over forty communities across Canada will observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS) on May 5, 1985.

 

This second annual Sanctity of Human Life Sunday has been coordinated by Christians Concerned for Life Calgary, in cooperation with the Christian Action Councils of Ontario.  On May 14th, 1969, the Canadian Parliament gave third reading to Bill150, legalizing the destruction of the unborn under certain conditions

.

The observance of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday on the first Sunday of May is to culminate in the celebration of Mothers’ Day on the second Sunday in May (May 12, 1985), with May 14 set aside as a special day of prayer for the unborn

.

The aim is to see SOHLS observed on a nation-wide scale in this country; to see justice restored in Canada for the unborn; and to spur on the growth of ministries to mothers with crisis pregnancies.
