Life Quote from Lutherans For Life¬†- ¬†What if we can‚Äôt afford this baby? What if we can‚Äôt pay for these treatments? Abortion means fewer people in poverty, doesn‚Äôt it? Assisted suicide leads to less stress on limited resources, right? The Gospel dissolves every panic in sweet promises. He who sends mouths has never failed to supply their meat (Exodus 16:13; Psalm 145:15-16). Ensuring survival poses no trouble for Him who has already engineered salvation (John 6:25). ‚ÄĘ ‚ÄĘ
