Abortion Sermons

Yesterday, as I was walking out of Food4Less, I had a thought, “I wonder how the Planned Parenthood controversy has been affecting women who’ve had abortions.”

When I first heard about the whole thing, I wondered if any of my babies had been sold: I had three abortions, but that’s as far as my wandering-through-the-past went because I “know” that’s not a part of me any longer, but are there some women out there who feel condemned, dirty, filthy for what they’ve done? If they’ve come to know Jesus, they’ve been cleansed.

I’ll never forget when I was a baby Christian. I went to a church service and, for the very first time, heard a sermon on abortion. I could barely stand to sit there. I felt awful but didn’t know how to move to leave. Finally, the emotions were unbearable, so I fled the sanctuary, crying, and lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of sermons about this clinic and about abortions, but there’s always one thing missing.

When pastors and the like speak on this subject, it’d be good for them to mention something like, “If you’ve had an abortion or abortions, God has forgiven you through Christ.” I’ve never heard that. They only speak of life, of judgment…but never mention about if someone had already caused death. It’d just be good for them to speak to that.

When I had the abortions, I didn’t know God, and I didn’t know “Jesus” was the answer. Obviously, I thought “abortion” was the best answer to three life questions, a decision that can never be undone.

If you’ve come to the heart of Jesus, you’ve been forgiven, and every abortion has been nailed to the cross. If you don’t know Jesus, meet Him. He will erase the pain from your past and transform your life into wholeness with the cleansing of His Love.

Forgive them, Father, for they did not know what they were doing.
