“I’m Sonja and I’m a volunteer with the pregnancy center. I lead a Bible study called SaveOne that’s specifically for anyone with abortion in their past. I have just a few moments to tell you about it, and I’ll start with a story.
Do you remember the Biblical story of the sinful woman who came to Simon the Pharisee’s house with an alabaster jar of perfume and gratefully poured it out on Jesus’ feet? Do you remember that Jesus said that she loved much because she had been forgiven much? There are millions of alabaster jars that have not yet been poured out at Christ’s feet because too many men and women wrongfully believe that abortion is the unforgivable sin. They need to hear and believe the words Jesus said to the sinful woman, “Your sins are forgiven. Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Millions of men and women can learn to love much because they have been forgiven much, and I am convinced that the telling of their redeemed stories will eventually make abortion unthinkable.”
Abortion is a short term “fix” with long term consequences. Adoption is long term. It’s the loving option. Loving for not only the child, but also for your family, your future self, and another family waiting to love a child (and in many cases, the birth family as well). Adoption allows you the option to know your child in this life. It allows your child a life. Adoption is love.
Here’s a link to my mom’s most recent interview on my uncle’s show. They cover quite a few topics from abortion, to adoption, and even breast milk donation. It’s good stuff!
