Sanctity of Life/ICU Mobile history of their work
“On this day, National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, we mourn the lives cut short, and the tremendous promise lost, as a result of abortion. As a Nation, we must resolve to protect innocent human life at every stage.” – President Donald Trump
President Trump made this statement in his Proclamation in 2019, and it’s incredible to think of all the ways we’ve seen victories and defeats in the fight for life over the past year. Our country is blessed to have a president who believes in the sanctity of life and who proclaims a day set aside for acknowledging the need for protection of unborn babies.
We are constantly reminded of the individuals, groups, and evil that work against us around the clock. The very fact that we have the freedom to create a mobile medical unit through which we provide pregnancy services and ministry is a testament to the greatness of our nation, but even more so, to the greatness of our God.
When Sylvia Slifko founded ICU Mobile in 2003, she had responded to call from God to go meet women right where they are to provide them the opportunity to see their child in the womb.
“It took nine months, not a coincidence in my mind or heart, for the first ICU Mobile to develop – truly a gift from God. We believe God has great plans for ICU Mobile and we want to be ready and willing vessels through which He fulfills His plans,” Sylvia has shared.
Opposition to abortion is one of the greatest stances to assert in the world today. As more countries are legalizing abortion and states are extending limitless access to abortion, it’s not enough to be simply against abortion. We must oppose it, we must be more than pro-life, we must fight for life. The very way every innocent child of abortion fights against the weapons used against them, we must fight for them before they have to fight for their life.
ICU Mobile has deployed weapons in the form of mobile medical units, ultrasound technology, and people who are willing to be brave enough share the gospel with women they’ve never met before. Our calling to fulfill the vision God provided to Sylvia Slifko is one we are honored to say “yes” to protecting human life at every stage.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. – Psalm 127:3-4
