"But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery, and their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace. For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality."
~Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-4
For more information on the Orthodox Christian view of abortion, please see this encyclical (click here) issued by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops.
This is another important and beautiful sanctity of life icon from Uncut Mountain Supply. Our hearts are broken over the scourge of abortion. Yet, in this icon is offered an aspect of our Orthodox Christian hope, in the mercy of our loving God, that the innocents are with Him.
