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 stand for life and preservation of it at every stage. We stand against abortion and euthanasia regardless of the circumstances, and we work toward the improvement of our neighbor’s life.
Every year, on the third Sunday in January, we observe the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, remembering the landmark Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973. Since that decision, there have been over 64 million abortions in the U.S., according to www.numberofabortions.com. We also prayerfully protest with other Christians as part of the Life Chain in October and hold an annual ingathering for our local pregnancy care center on Mother’s Day.
