I heard it said once, “I don’t know what a woman is thinking when she has an abortion.” This I can say—she is not thinking clearly. She is in a place where she feels completely hopeless; she doesn’t think she can handle giving life to a child in her situation. There are many reasons a person contemplates having an abortion. The simple truth is, abortion kills an unborn child. Life is precious. Life is a gift. God is the creator of every living thing. God does not make mistakes. It is a fact, if something can grow, it is alive. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us God knew us before we were formed in our mother's womb. Psalm 139:13-15 tells us God knows us completely even before we are born. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us he has a plan and purpose for our lives—everyone’s life—even the life of an unborn child.
A person may think having an abortion gets rid of a problem and when it’s over, it’s over. The fact is, it never goes away. An abortion changes time forever. There will come a day when the memory of having an abortion will be faced again and when the reality of the choice of having an abortion is fully realized, it can have life-long devastating effects. The effects of having an abortion can surface even 20, 30 or more years later, all the while affecting your life even subconsciously. Statistics show that abortions are performed in this country at a rate of a million every year in the United States alone, meaning almost 3000 abortions are being performed every day in this country at a rate of about one abortion every 30 seconds, and these are only the abortions that are reported. (https://www.guttmacher.org/fact-sheet/induced-abortion-united-states). If a child is killed after birth, a moral outcry is heard around the world. Yet, killing unborn children happens every day, legally.
We are advocates for Sanctity of Life in every area of life including raising awareness of the perpetuating effects of domestic abuse that in some cases lead to abortion. The suicide rate of women who have had an abortion is almost six times higher than those women who have given birth to their children, all of which are preventable.
We invite you to join us in prayer and becoming a light in the darkness of this world where killing unborn life has become an epidemic, not only in this country but around the world. Don't remain silent. Let your voice be heard!
