I Set Before You Life And Death and Less Jesus

We proclaim the Word of life. The life appeared. We have seen the life. We testify to the life, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. (1 John 1:1-3)

In Him was life. – Jesus (John 1:4)

“I am the bread of life.” – Jesus (John 6:48)

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” – Jesus (John 14:6)

“I came that they may have life, and have life abundantly.” – Jesus (John 10:10)

We call on federal and state legislators to act to protect the lives of women and girls by codifying their right to abortions.” – Harriett Jane Olson chief executive officer of the United Women in Faith’s (formerly United Methodist Women)

“The thief comes only to kill and destroy.” – Jesus (John 10:10)

“As a leading Christian women’s organization committed to the needs of women, children, and youth, United Women in Faith must voice alarm at the possibility of women losing the Constitutional right to legal abortion guaranteed by the Supreme Court’s precedent-setting Roe v Wade decision. Overturning Roe could also endanger the right to privacy that should also protect women from being prosecuted for a miscarriage and affords women access to widely used, safe, and legal contraceptives.

“Over the years, The United Methodist Church has crafted a carefully nuanced position on abortion that calls us to respect both the sanctity of unborn human life and the well-being of the mother, while supporting the legal option of abortion by certified medical providers in cases of “tragic conflicts of life with life.” *

“It is for this reason that, as the nation awaits the Supreme Court’s ruling on this issue, we express our concern for the lives of women and girls as more than 20 states are posed to effectively outlaw abortions in the event that Roe is overturned.” — UMC General Secretary and CEO Harriett Jane Olson

I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19)
