What would you do if you faced the challenge of an unwanted pregnancy? What would you do if your daughter came to you with a big secret?
Stephen Arterburn went to college to get a Christian education, but what happened is that he got a girl pregnant – and pressured her to have an abortion.
Whenever I heard about a teenage pregnancy, my first thought was that the mother should place her baby for adoption. Let me be clear in saying that the best option for your baby is life, but teenage pregnancy isn’t easy, and acting on it was a very different story.
Our intention in adopting wasn’t to set an example or even to encourage others. Our only goal was obedience. And yet, little by little, God helped me see that He can use our obedience to further His kingdom in ways we never imagined.
It is a lie that abortion is the easy and logical solution to an unwanted pregnancy. A woman cannot abort her child and remain unscathed.
We can’t simply encourage an expectant mother to “choose life” and then leave her alone to figure it out. We must follow up and follow through.
If you or someone you know is facing an unplanned pregnancy, you should know that pregnancy resource centers are devoted to offering women alternatives to abortion, helping them make informed choices and providing a range of services to support them throughout their pregnancy and beyond.
Even if you’ve already taken the abortion pill, it might not be too late to reverse the effects of a chemical abortion.
Serving young moms is an important part of being pro-life, and we as a community need to have a heart for them. I’ve learned that helping teen moms works so much better when we do it together.
