What Do I Plan To Do About It?

I have gotten many comments asking what am "I" doing to help the situation of abortion and those involved. At the present moment my husband and I only have one vehicle and he takes it to work with him, so I can't volunteer at our local Women's Crisis Center, we don't have the funds to donate to the National Right To Life, and Josh and I can't adopt because of finances. So, I am doing what I can by talking to those that have come to me (Yes, I have personally dealt with ladies considering an abortion) and praying for those that have the means to donate their time and money. I would really do more about this if I could.

While I have never been put in the position of having to make a life or death choice for a child, or the people and the circumstances they may be in, I have seen what an unwanted pregnancy is and what it will do to that person...I've seen it first hand. I've seen when it was a wanted pregnancy, but the Lord saw fit to take it home to be with him before the baby even came out of the womb. When a woman miscarries, did she miscarry a BABY or just some blob of tissue? I must admit that it's not easy, and they have A LOT to deal with...but that baby inside of them is still a human life that was created by God and whether or not the parents of that baby wanted that pregnancy, God has a purpose for each person created, and He has a reason for that pregnancy.

I know that rape is a vile thing and that it is very hard and very, very stressful and an emotional tragedy to deal with. I have a very close friend of mine that was raped and I saw what it did to her, I have seen the affects of it. But God is there for all who are willing to turn to Him for comfort and support. (1 Peter 5:7 Casting all our cares upon him for he careth for you)

Just because I speak out on abortion and how I believe it's wrong and that it's the murder of an innocent baby doesn't mean that I have no compassion for the ladies in those situations. And I am in NO way judging the person, but rather what they are doing. I have never been called out as one who judges others. I want to offer help to these ladies, and show them that there are other options out there, and that while He doesn't condone it and He hates what they are doing, Jesus loves them no matter what!
