Who's Talking!

So statistics show that 78% of women who abort claim to be from a religion. By the time we reach 40 they say 1 in 3 women have aborted. Since 1973 there have been 50 million abortions. Let's say that 1/3 of them have aborted twice ( I don't have the actual statistics)...well then there would still be 15-20 million women out there who have aborted. Having come out of the closet through intense prayer recently, I am seriously aware that women do not talk about their abortions. And the women in churches would have you believe that you are the only one. I am in a church with 2000 people. So far I am the only person who has come out of the closet to talk about it. I will tell you that the abortion i had was 27 years ago. I swore i would never talk about it with anyone but my husband (who was not the happened 6 years before we were married). I also really know that I am healed through Jesus. So, when I decided to 'come out' i didn't really expect to still have intense feelings on the subject. But I will say that it is cathartic to talk about it. I have found further healing ...And next week I start a bible study called 'Tender Mercies'. I will say though that along with further healing I am also experiencing further disappointment. It is very lonely out here being one of the few of the 15-20 million women to actually be talking about their experience. It is also disappointing to find out that so many women are so locked into the lies of the abortion movement. I have learned being pro life and speaking out about your bad abortion experience is the equivalent of being a whistle blower in a very corrupt company with a favorable reputation. I cannot help but tell the truth but also have to understand the power of the 35 years of lies regarding abortion. I believe if more of us would talk about our disappointment, regret, depression, guilt, anger....we would have the potential to drown out the voices of the prochoice movement arguing have the right to choose to kill. No one should have the right to rip a baby out of their womb. Not many people are talking and we should be hearing the shouts of the women who have now seen the light after being hurt by abortion....not many are talking and some will never talk...some may never be healed because they can't even cry out to anyone....we have to fess up to our sin and move on to reveal the truth. The truth will set you free and the lies will continue to kill. We have to scream out when we hear women like Michelle Obama say 'women want abortions." MOST WOMEN DO NOT WANT ABORTIONS... they want their babies but make bad choices based on speaking out, in talking we can help to erase the lies and begin to shed light on the truth...let's talk....scream, shout out...THIS IS WRONG ....HELP US TO GIVE OUR BABIES LIFE...
