For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Pop star Nicki Minaj told Rolling Stone about her abortion: “It was the hardest thing I have ever gone through….It has haunted me all my life.”
Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler talked about his girlfriend’s abortion: “It’s a major thing when you’re growing something with a woman, but they convinced us that it would never work out and would ruin our lives….You go to the doctor and they put the needle in her belly and they squeeze the stuff in and you watch. And it comes out dead. I was pretty devastated. In my mind, I’m going, Jesus, what have I done?”
Steven’s onto something.
God forgives with such unfathomable mercy. Thank you, oh Lord. As more parents acknowledge pain and regret over their abortions, I remind them that God can life that burden. Mothers and fathers wounded by abortion can accept the grace and forgiveness of our loving Father God.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Pray for unwed mothers; encourage them, if you know them personally; and support programs that help mothers realize that there are much better alternatives to abortion, alternatives that offer life, love, and freedom from guilt.
