Lutherans for Life… January 26 “The ‘right’ of abortion does not expand personal choice or freedom; it severely restricts it because it establishes the prior ‘right’ of the state to permit or to deny the right to life at will. Such a step, the legalization of abortion, is the beginning of the death of freedom and of man.” R. J. Rushdoony, theologian and philosopher.
