Presbyterians Pro-Life responds to tragic shooting Print

A tragic shooting of innocent children and others took place at the Elementary School in New Town Connecticut earlier today, Friday, December 14, 2012.  While the motives of the shooter are unknown, Presbyterians Pro-Life strongly condemns this action and any underlying attitude that one person may take the innocent life of another person created in the image of God.

In response to this profound tragedy PPL is even more strongly committed to the work of creating a culture of life within our churches and in our larger society.  We believe that human life is to be protected from conception to natural death.

Our prayers are with the parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, family members and all loved ones affected by this tragedy. May God comfort them and grant them the peaceful presence of Emmanuel, "God with us" whose coming we celebrate in this season.

Events like this are further proof that a sinful fallen world needs the savior Jesus Christ.

"I am he who comforts you." (Isaiah 51:12)
