Talking to the Abortion-Minded

Being pro-life is being pro-woman. Today was the real women’s march.

Dear Christian Sisters,

One of my dear friends encouraged me to join a radio conversation in which the host asked callers how they talk to those who are pro-choice.

I realized that my response would make a good blog post, so here is what I said.

I respond to the pro-choice by talking only about the woman, not the killing of babies. I do not say “mother” but instead “woman,” and I do not call the baby a baby but instead “pre-born” because, so far, that term does not make them angry.

I used to be pro-choice, and I’ve had an abortion. I volunteered for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and counter-protested Christians who were picketing an abortion clinic (in the early 1990s). I know how they think because I used to be one of them.

I tell the abortion-minded what abortion does to women. I tell them that I had an abortion. That usually stops all their arguments right there. But I continue to tell them statistics on depression and how even though I wasn’t clinically depressed, I had no joy, that my joy was sucked away with my baby. The word “sucked” emphasizes the horror of abortion.

I am on a quest to teach the pro-life to talk to the abortion-minded so that we can love them over the life line. I was loved over the life line.

I have begun writing the Faces of Abortion Series of books (1st one out soon), which will have many Christian post-abortive women’s stories so that the pro-life movement is equipped to talk to the pro-choice movement.

Being pro-life is being pro-woman. Today was the real women’s march.

In Christ,

Cheryl

I am an outspoken Christian, just telling it like it is. And I have a mission. My mission is to change the conversation about abortion. Perhaps as a result, Christians will think and talk differently about abortion and then accomplish the Great Commission one hurting woman—and man—at a time. Matt 28:19 AND 20
