In Part I, I discussed some of the reasons that women choose abortion and why many believe that abortion is an only option when they find themselves in a crisis pregnancy.
In Part II, I discussed the short and long-term effects of abortion including physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychological aspects.
Are you facing a crisis pregnancy?
Are you torn with making a life altering decision with the life you are carrying inside you?
Are you being pressured to have an abortion by someone?
If you answer yes to even one of these questions, then you are facing one of the most important and life-altering decisions of your life.
Abortion offers a “quick fix” to a crisis pregnancy, but abortion is only a symptom of what is really going on in your life; it is the root of your problem. Before you decide to do anything–STOP. The sky isn’t falling. The sun is still shining. The moon is still glowing. Rushing into this decision is unwise because it will effect you for the rest of your life.
There is another option...
Think about it. There are so many people who can’t conceive, and who would LOVE the opportunity to hold a precious baby in their arms, and to love that child, and to give a good life to a child if only they had that chance.
One place that you can go for help in deciding what is best for you is Bethany . Bethany has clinics throughout the US.
Consider another place: Care-Net. Care-Net, who has helped so many mothers and fathers.
Another place to consider is Texas Christian Adoptions who have helped place many babies into good homes. They offer help for mothers and fathers who feel that there is no where else to turn. Please know that being pregnant is not the end of the world. There are places you can go to receive help. Places who have the resources to help you work through your situation. People who truly do care about you. If you find yourself in this situation, please feel free to contact them Texas Christian Adoptions
Also, if you live in northern Indiana or southern Michigan, you can contact LifePlan who can also offer help for you and your baby should you decide to keep your baby. They give free ultra sounds, I believe.
Below is a list from the Heidi Group with clinics across the country who also offer help in the adoption process.
And finally, please allow me to leave you with an important final thought. There is another grave concern when it comes to aborting your baby and too little said about it.
I pray that you can understand that one of the most important reasons that I want those who are facing a crisis pregnancy to understand and consider is that you understand the strong bond between a mother and her child–a bond so strong that nothing or no one can penetrate it, break it, or kill it. The memory of your child will never go away. You will always remember your baby’s anniversary date each time it comes around every year. The memory of your child will live forever in your memory. Why? Because it is the way God planned it:
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. ” Psalm 139:13-14
If others have told you that abortion is “no big deal”, “a piece of cake”, “it will solve your problems”, or, even if you’ve been told that “there will be no lasting consequences,” then you have not been told the truth.
Abortion is not the answer to your problems. It won’t wipe away the memory of your child. In fact, the opposite occurs. If you abort your child, you will carry an even greater burden that cannot be undone.
Are you pregnant? Are you hurting? Don’t know what to do? If you believe that you will be unable to care for your baby, there is still hope. LifePlan can help you through the process if you wish to keep the love of your life. If not, then please consider adoption and give your baby a chance at life. You decide to give your baby to a loving couple, then it will be the greatest gift you will ever give to someone who wants nothing else than to love a child.
President Trump has encouraged adoption over abortion because he believes in life. This is a wonderful start to stop abortion. If we join others and encourage adoption, then we can save one life at a time. We may be the only voice in the world who can help change a mind; who can help someone choose life for their child.
If you know someone who may be helped by this series, please share the link. We can reach one heart at a time.
*Note: I’ve written these series to offer help and hope to those who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy. This is not a site for pro-abortion activists who want to vent, argue, or show disrespect to those who believe that every life is worth saving. I will not publish pro abortion remarks.
The Heidi Group offers a list of states in alphabetical order where agencies across the country to help you locate an agency near you.
My thoughts and prayers are with anyone who is facing a crisis pregnancy, including fathers.
Next, in Part IV, I will address fathers who wish that they had a voice in saving the life of their child, and who feel helpless in saving their child from abortion. As long as a woman can only conceive a baby by a man’s sperm, then a father has the right to speak his voice.
These posts are about offering help to abortion-minded women and connecting them to the right people, but they are also for those who have lost hope, trying to make sense of their life, and for those who can’t see a light at the end of their tunnel.
If you’d like to discover God’s purpose for your life, and to find the hope to carry you through, then consider my latest book, “Hurting Hearts Need a Light.”
I will be offering my book for free during the first week of December for one day. I will post the date on this site and give you a heads up on the day it will be available. If you wish to get my ebook free, you can sign up and follow this blog site.
May your days become brighter as you walk toward a better future knowing you made the right choice for you and your baby. You can do this. You just need a light to follow.
You’ve been hurting long enough. It’s time to change course and see what God has in store for your life. He loves you. He offers forgiveness and grace.
