Last night I attended a benefit dinner for our local Pregnancy Care Center. I came away with some things I didn't really consider before. Before I was a Christian, I was pro-choice. Since becoming a Christian my views have changed on a lot of things and on this topic. My eyes were opened even further last night!! I am PRO-LIFE and I will stand firm in this choice. They had a wonderful and thought-provoking speaker last night that made the audience look at some things pretty hard. Here are some facts that I didn't know or consider before last night:
- Abortion is the #1 elective surgery in the US
- Breast cancer is 4-7 times more possible if you had an abortion
- 1 of every 3 African American babies are aborted.
- Abortion is legal for all 9 months in every state in the US!!!
There is also hope!
-83% of mothers who have a ultrasound while considering abortion, continue the pregnancy
-there are centers like this one throughout the US that are God loving people that provide help and hope to confused men and women.
The speaker really made me think about something I really never thought about. That every child that was aborted in this nation, that God had a plan for them and who are we to play God and extinguish that life. WOW!! What if that child had the cure for cancer, AIDS, Alzheimers?? What did we just do to eliminate that dream and that hope??
Every child is a blessing not only to its parents, but to God. I will continue to pray for these women that decide that abortion is their only choice. I will pray that these needless killings will end.
I just wanted to share something that is on my heart. The verse that encompassed this years benefit was this: "Nothing in All Creation is Hidden From God's Sight" Hebrews 4:13a
Life is Beautiful! Praise God!
