Life Quote: “[W]e make a grave mistake if we think just electing leaders whom we label ‘pro-life’ is somehow a pro-life mandate that will bring sweeping changes protecting the unborn from the daily slaughter of abortion. That did not even happen when all three branches of our government were ‘pro-life.’ We don’t need just pro-life politicians. We need pro-life champions who will promote the priority of protecting innocent children even over the priority of protecting pocketbooks.” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life ·
