A Heart For God: 7 Lies About Abortion

7 Lies About Abortion

I used to work in a deli/cafe as a sandwich maker. A friend and coworker of mine was in a bad relationship at the time, got pregnant and decided to get an abortion. I tried to talk her out of it, but her situation was just too overwhelming. She got the abortion. As I look back, I can't help but think of the position of my friend. It wasn't an easy thing to find yourself with child by a guy who didn't love you. It wasn't an easy thing to find yourself unsupported and having to decide whether or not to end a pregnancy. It wasn't an easy thing to find yourself dealing with feelings of loneliness, despair, turmoil, fear ~ and anger, too. The conclusion: It's real people who grapple over the abortion issue. It's real people who need to be loved and cared for, talked to and pointed to a better way. I hope the following list is a tiny step in that direction...

7 Lies About Abortion:

#1: The 6th commandment does not prohibit abortion. (Exodus 20:13)
#2: You can be a Christian and be "pro-choice."
#3: That thing in the womb is not a human being.
#4: Abortion is not murder.
#5: A woman is not traumatized by the experience.
#6: There is not a tremendous sense of guilt that follows.
#7: God can not forgive you if you've had one.

"If we confess our sins, He (Christ) is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

"'Come to Me (Jesus), all who are weary and heavy-laden (with guilt and sin), and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you (walk in obedience to my life-enriching instructions) and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:28-29)

I was and am pro-life both as an agnostic and a Christian. My view is this:

1. A fetus is life.
2. A fetus is not life.
3. I don't know when life begins.

Positions 1 and 3 (I've held both) would not allow for abortion. If I believe a fetus is life then abortion is the reprehensible taking of a life. If I do not know when life begins, then why would I have an abortion knowing that a fetus MAY be life and I MAY be taking a life?

I don't see compelling evidence supporting the notion that a fetus is not life. Why does it need to be compelling? I either AM taking a life or MAY be taking a life if either of the other positions is true.

When I found myself pregnant, my parents were in the middle of a nasty divorce. My mom moved out with her boyfriend and I lived alone with a father I feared more than God. I made the wrong choice. I lived silently with the decision and not one day goes by that I do not think of the life I killed. Looking back, I asked a friend for advice and she directed me to Planned Parenthood. I depended on the nurse to explain pregnancy to me...she said it was not a fetus amd just a mass of cells waiting to be formed. I believed her...and my first GYN exam was an abortion. I refused any pain medication- I wanted to punish myself for my choice. I believed the lies about abortion and lived in shame and self-hatred for many years. When I finally had children by coice, I suffered post-partum depression. As my kids were growing in the womb, I realized they were not a mass of cells and I had killed a child. The depression of realizing this 20 years later was suffocating. Realizing what I had lost- a Gift from God- weighed me down with clinical depression and PTSD. I hated myself. Through faith, I learned that God forgave me and Jesus covered my sin. Yet I was unable to forgive myself. Satan held power over me- reminding me of my shame and my loss. When I truly fell in love with Jesus I was able to accept forgiveness and let go of the lies.

I have never told anyone about the two abortions that I had,the second one was the hardest still is I look at kids that were born the same month as I was suppose to have my kid and feel so much pain.I have grown to love kids so much that I will lay down my life for any kid I meet.I will never advice anyone to abort.I pray everyday that God forgive me and my weak moments.When anyone speak of abortion being a murder I feel so much pain in my heart.I wish I can find healing

God has always loved you. He forgave you after the act was done. Do not let anyone tell you that God isn't a forgiving God he is. Now you need to forgive yourself and live for him. May you find peace in the words I have written.

When I was 17 and living at home with my five siblings, mother and dad a girlfriend asked my parents permission for me to go to the mall with her and her boyfriend.
While in the car we were joking, laughing and just having a good time. When we drove past the mall I questioned what was going on? I was told by Jackie that her and Richy had another errand to run and I could save the money my dad gave me.
When we drove up toward this building, I saw women and men carrying signs that abortions were murdered. I recall making a comment that I agreed and how I would never condone that. Well, Richy parked the car there. He, Jackie and I got out and went in. When I saw her sign in and go to the back with a nurse, I lost it. Knowing a lie had been told to myself and both of my parents I knew I was in trouble. I remember seeing clear trash bags being brought out and waiting for hours. Then the quiet ride home. I said nothing.
A month or more later I walked home from school. I saw Jackie. I planned on ignoring her. She wanted to stop and explain what happened. I snapped. Accused her of murder and I wailed on her. Injuring her. I never asked her forgiveness and I never forgot .
I prayed the lord to forgive me and I prayed that the both of them would find God. Abortions effect us all.
