Be There For Abortion-Minded Women
Abortion is totally unacceptable, and your instinct might be to talk about everything wrong with it, but that’s often not the best approach. Instead, focus on the person standing in front of you and the challenges she’s facing. She’s probably afraid. Listen to her and try to understand her concerns first. Then prove to her through your kindness that you’re ready to support her through pregnancy. Be familiar with local life-affirming resources so you’re ready to thoroughly help her.
Although we don’t support abortion, we must support both pregnant women and post-abortive women. One way to support a pregnant woman is to persuade her to reject abortion. Tragically, though, sometimes our efforts fail. If she does get an abortion, we want her to feel safe talking to us again about abortion and her experience. Don’t turn your back on friends who have had abortions. Love them. Help them recognize the true nature of abortion. Help them heal.
