To the woman that’s had an abortion

To the woman that's had an abortion

Dear mother,

I call you a mother because you are. You might be shocked. You’re the CEO of a company. You have a life. You are certainly NOT a mother. But, friend, you are. You were a mother, even if only for a few months or even weeks. So you are a mother. I believe that babies who can’t make a choice for themselves go to heaven. Not because they have not done wrong, but because they could not choose Jesus as their savior.  You might wish you didn’t make that choice. It all happened so fast. Maybe you were a teen. The thought of being a ‘teen mom’ was sickening, to say the least. You worried about acceptance. You were already not popular, so what would this do your social life? Would anyone ever accept you again? The pressure of those around you to have an abortion was so strong. It was quick and easy. Or so you thought. But here you are, still thinking about it. Still thinking about that little life inside of you. That you’ll never see again. That thought is truly sickening. Then again, you might be glad. “I succeeded because I don’t have children.” Is your thought. You might even be glad that you won’t ever know your baby.

But I’m not here to talk about the wrong that you did. I’m here to talk about my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. He loves you. That will never change. He will never leave you.

 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

-Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV

Do you trust in him? My friend, if you don’t, His arms are open wide. He will welcome you with joy and gladness. He loves you. And that’s what I want you to know.

It doesn’t matter what you say or how you say it. All you need to do is trust that Jesus died and rose again for YOU. Ask him to come into your heart and save you.

And, dear mother,

I’m praying for you.

    1. Hi Amanda! I’m sorry that you think that way, but I’m going to continue posting about abortion. I didn’t write this post to shame abortion, I wrote it specifically for some women that I know.
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I know people who would agree with you, but I’m not one of them. I hope that this doesn’t come out rude/cold sounding, but it really is easier to talk in person, don’t you think?

      1. I mean dont be sorry; do you care to share why you disagree?
        I dont think calling women who’ve had abortions “mothers” accomplishes anything other than making them uncomfortable and to say that they did something wrong is judgemental and frankly kinda stuck up

      2. Sure, Amanda!
        I understand your point. I don’t want to make a mother feel uncomfortable, but I am telling the truth. They are mothers in the sense that they were mothers, and still are mothers, because I believe that babies go to heaven.
        Again, this wasn’t to shame women. It was to give them a greater hope. I didn’t specifically address them being wrong in this post, though I have addressed that before. How does it sound stuck up to you? I’m eager to hear your response.

  1. I agree with your point of view, we should pray for, love, and give hope to people who get abortions, even though they did something wrong. Because that is what Jesus does. Thank you for writing this post Christina, it’s lovely!
