The call finally came. The one I had been waiting for to tell me if my letter would be publish in our local paper. About a month and half ago there on the front page of our newspaper were these words ”Obama: Open minds needed on abortion debate”.
After reading the article, God started to nudge me to share apiece of my story (God’s Story) with the readers in our community. So, this letter to the editor will appear in a few days in our local paper.
Open minds needed
Obama says open minds are needed in the abortion debate. So, with an open-mind, would you be willing to read my story?
Abortion not only claims the lives of pre-born babies, it devastates the lives of women who made this choice. I know because 20 years ago, I had an abortion. I walked into that clinic with an open mind, believing what they told me: This was my right as a woman. It would be be a simple procedure and I could go on with my life. I only half-believed that it was just a "blob of tissue."
Instead, my abortion haunted me for years. Shame, guilt, anger and depression had devastating affects on my family and me. I've since gone through an abortion recovery program and experienced the healing and forgiveness of Jesus. I'm no longer ashamed, but I will always regret my choice.
I pray that President Obama's girls will never face this choice.
