Abortion – For Our Readers

Posted on July 16, 2021

By sharing our stories of hope and healing, we offer an exceptional gift to another. So often, in times of suffering and pain, we benefit from knowing we are not alone. Our words can make a significant difference to someone who needs to hear a Biblical perspective of hope.

You may have heard the statistics, “1 out of 4 women by age 45 will have had an abortion.” And of those women and men, so many have not experienced God’s grace, forgiveness, and love. And of their families, friends, and loved ones, they may think they don’t have permission to grieve the loss.

If you have not experienced abortion personally, I ask you to pray for God’s wisdom in how you can become a safe person for those you may know or come into contact with who are suffering from abortion. Being a safe person is vital, and it grants the Lord the opportunity to use you as a healing vessel. Unfortunately, the abortion-minded and those who have chosen abortion often hurt and feel isolated. However, there are several ways to pursue education to help those who grieve their decisions.

If you have been affected by abortion and have not sought after abortion care, I ask for you to pray for discernment and guidance from the Lord on your next steps. You may think you need to wait for the “right time.” But the reality is, the enemy will never allow that feeling to come. If you would like more information on care after an abortion, please reach out to us. No judgment, only help to hope. — Tanya and Tricia.
