In October of 2018, I traveled to the Life Issues Institute in Cincinnati Ohio to film a portion of my story as a post abortive mom. This particular story was focusing on the truths and horrors of Chemical Abortion also known as the abortion pill, RU486 and chemical abortion. It was released in radio version in January 2019 and now video version February 2019. I encourage you to watch it. Three women, Me, Elizabeth ( a new friend of mine) and an OB/GYN all share the truth about the abortion pill process and its impact.
For those who know me, my story of brokenness, trauma, abuse and addiction spans decades starting in the 1970's and ending in 2004 when I had a miraculous experience with God on a short stretch of highway in South central Pennsylvania. If it were not for that encounter with God I would be dead today! God saved me for a reason. In part I believe that reason is to tell my whole story unashamedly to anyone who wishes to hear it!
Over the past 15 years as a born again Christ follower, I've walked many roads of healing and restoration. Because of the intensity and variety of suffering I experienced both done to me and done by me, I've learned that using my voice is a powerful tool to combat the lies society heaps upon us. I've also learned that my overcoming is clearly explained in Revelation 12:11.
Revelation 12:11 (NKJV)
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
This is why I've accepted every offer extended to share my story, the Testimony of the Saving, Healing, Redeeming and Restoring Power of Christ. This trip to Ohio was no different. Somehow, sharing my story whether in part or whole, God always brings healing balm to my soul. It reminds me of the amazing work of God IN ME and THROUGH ME. I've been healed from physical and sexual abuse, addiction, witchcraft, abortion, adultery, divorce, foster care abuse, rage, suicidal tendencies, perversion and many other things to many to mention now.
The facts remain that until I became a Christian in 2004, I was pro-abortion. I believed that in my particular case that a child's worst possible fate was to have me as a mother. This is the lie I believed. My heart wanted a different truth. While the 8 abortion providers I encountered never said this too me, they did say enough to make aborting my child seem much less like murder and more like a uterine ablation or heavy menstrual cycle. Never once did they acknowledge the life growing within me or the value of that life or mine.
Please don't hear me wrong, I take full responsibility for my actions and choices. Deep within I KNEW it was wrong. Yet, I also know that factual and truthful counsel, may have set me on a different course, altogether. If they would've told me during my 1st abortion what I was doing, the value of the baby, my ability to parent, i wouldn't have to do it alone, the lifelong consequences of abortion, the health risks, etc, I may have changed my mind. The truth is the ABORTION workers DON'T WANT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND! They want you to abort/murder your child.
For those of you who may be reading this and then watch the video, I want you to know that if you have had an abortion and are suffering, there is HOPE and HEALING. You do not have to suffer in silence anymore and certainly not alone.
For those of you who who scoff at my testimony, may I appeal to you directly?
Abortion is Murder. Abortion has two victims, Mom and Baby. Please watch this video with an open mind and decide for yourself if this is what those who support abortion are telling you. Are you being told the truth? Is my experience or Elizabeth's experience evidence of full medical disclosure? Would you tolerate mis-information or deception in any other medical procedure? It would be called malpractice, if truth be told. I'll pray that your heart is changed.
Thank you for reading and watching. One final word. Please do not watch this video with small children within listening range. Our stories are graphic. They are True.
