Lutheran theology is deeply and thoroughly a message of Life! Not only is God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — the Creator of life, but He has redeemed all life and made it Holy through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore, we take a standing for life and preservation of it at every stage.. We stand against abortion and euthanasia regardless of the circumstance, and we work toward the improvement of our neighbor’s life.
Every year, on the third Sunday in January, we observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, remembering the landmark Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973. Since then, there have been 62 million abortions in the U.S., according to www.numberofabortions.com. Lutherans for Life of Michigan's "Lifelines" states, "Life Sunday is a day to celebrate life and educate on life issues and the value of life from conception until natural death.” In 2021, we will observe Life Sunday on January 17.
