Life Quote: “We need to provide much more support for overburdened mothers—personal, financial, social, and medical support—both before and after their child is born. We need to ensure that children who may be unwanted and unloved by their parents will be welcomed and loved by others in society and especially by the Church.” John Stott, English Christian leader and Anglican cleric – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life · www.lutheransforlife.org

Report from The Christian Care Committee: More Funds are Needed!
