Can I tell my pro-life friend about my abortion? Won’t they be judgemental?
They look at the aborted baby and see the death of a son or daughter.
They look at the woman and see a bereaved mother.
They look at the man and see a father whose natural response to protect and defend the vulnerable has been denied.
They look at the teen and see a child who has been taught lies instead of scientific facts.
They are speaking out to proclaim that each little life is of value. Each baby who dies deserves to be mourned.
They see women who are trying to live normal lives while society denies them the comfort for their heartbreak.
Pro-lifers understand the emotional response that a parent has at the death of their baby. We do not assume that each baby who is killed is ‘unwanted’, but recognise that for many parents there was no support, for many mothers there was coercion, for many the abortion industry rushed them on to a production line of death.
Pro-lifers give their time, stand in the rain, endure abuse, are misunderstood and lied about. For us, the important thing is to give support and help for those who have had abortions. As they look at the images and talk to the volunteers, we see them come to an understanding of the humanity of their babies. This can be painful; we stand with them as they start their journey to truth, health and healing.
