Life Quote: “What does it say to our neighbor when in our own families we care for our elderly, become foster parents, adopt children, care for the handicapped, or carry through with an unplanned pregnancy? What does it say to our community when in our churches we care and pray for each other, offering families respite care, visit nursing homes, or provide for the needs of pregnant women? It says that we are truly For Life because we are living it.” Diane E. Schroeder, president of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life · www.lutheransforlife.org
