A Life Quote From Lutherans For Life...

”Witnessing to the Sanctity of Human Life Based on the Word of God”

“When we are faithful to our calling, people will learn through the work of the Holy Spirit that the best choice in any life crisis is to know what God says in His Word and then make a decision that is God pleasing. Christians need to trust God and choose life. But if we don’t talk about it, how will they know?”

Diane E. Schroeder, president of Lutherans For Life
