“The Bible doesn’t say anything about abortion.”
“It’s not a person.”
“My body, my right.”
“If it’s illegal, women will die.”
“Don’t legislate morality.”
“You can’t force rape victims to bear their attackers’ children.”
“We shouldn’t judge those poor women.”
Let’s look into how we can share God’s grace sensitively, eloquently, and winsomely in response to these and other invitations. Featuring Rev. Michael Salemink, Executive Director of Mission and Ministry at Lutherans For Life.
