Reporter Insert: Eyes of Life

A November 2017 Supplement to the Reporter highlights Eyes of Life, an initiative of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to boldly give voice to what millions of others also believe: that all life, from conception to natural death, is sacred, valued and a gift from God.

By sharing honest stories on eyesoflife.org, people of the LCMS encourage each other and this world to see with eyes of life. Not every story is easy or even happy. Not every tale has a happy ending. Yet in each telling, God’s view of life encounters another person.

Life is a gift from God through His love in Christ. This precious gift is under attack in our world. In response, Eyes of Life is a proclamation of the goodness of life. Eyes of Life is a positive voice for life as God gives it.

    In the November 2017 Reporter there was an insert titled: “Eyes of Life”. Under current issues there was a quote from Carol Tobias, National Right to Life, Committee President. She was calling for support in addressing the problem of assisted suicide. I live in Oregon, the first state to make assisted suicide legal, in 1997. Over the twenty years 1,127 people have died from ingesting the drugs that were legally prescribed them under the law. I could not find the exact number of suicides by gun shoot over that same time; but for the nine years 2003-2012 I found that 3,169 Oregonians took their life by gun shoot. That means that suicide by gun is nearly six times the problem that assisted suicide is. I would certainly consider the gun issue to be a life issue. Could you find a quote from Carol Tobias that addresses the prevalence of guns in our society?
