Washington DC, Jan 16, 2009 / 05:08 pm (CNA).- In what may be his last declaration as U.S. president, George W. Bush has announced that he is establishing January 18, 2009 as "National Sanctity of Human Life Day."

President Bush writes that "All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique, and worthy of protection. 

"On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our country recognizes that each person, including every person waiting to be born, has a special place and purpose in this world.  We also underscore our dedication to heeding this message of conscience by speaking up for the weak and voiceless among us."

Quote
In a reference to biomedical advances, Bush described America as a "caring Nation" which must never abandon its "fundamental morals" in its "zeal for new treatments and cures." "We can achieve the great breakthroughs we all seek with reverence for the gift of life," he added.

The president closed his declaration by saying that "the sanctity of life is written in the hearts of all men and women" and that National Sanctity of Life Day should be dedicated building "a society in which every child is welcome in life and protected in law."
