Why We offer SaveOne - an abortion recovery Bible study

May 18th 2018

My initial introduction to the abortion issue was not intentional. It began with an early morning phone call from a friend whom I knew very well. However, that morning she was crying so hard I did not recognize her voice. I had never guessed an abortion choice could cause deep, palpable, out of control pain. I was stunned and from that day to now have never agreed abortion is ever a wise choice. Time and my experience since has served to solidify my position.

During the conversation, after some very long silences while she tried to gain some composure, she told me the day was the anniversary of an abortion she’d had several years before. She didn’t share details, but she did reach out to me for something I was unable to give.  I could not fully understand the depth of her anguish. I say with gratefulness I’ve never had an abortion. However, I have experienced unrelenting grief because of the death of my son. I do know what a grieving parent feels. Still, I did not cause nor arrange for my son’s death. Therefore, my ability to fully grasp the needs of a post abortive parent is limited.

Sonja Bates and Cynthia Mossman both understand. They’ve experienced the devastation abortion causes in a life. Their stories are redemptive, because each uses her experience to reach out and minister hope to those who need supportive help while they seek healing from an abortion.

Why is SaveOne valuable? The study offers truth about God’s character and His unconditional forgiveness. Those who go through the study learn one sin is not necessarily more damning, but there are those decisions which come with greater consequences because the losses are catastrophic.  The SaveOne study addresses the unique needs of one who desires to fully embrace God’s forgiveness and begin to live in restored freedom.

I have seen lives transformed in those weeks of challenging study and discussion. It has always been a joy for me to observe the last meeting when parents are able, maybe for the first time to honor a child while they shed bittersweet tears knowing he waits in Heaven. It’s a beautiful time.

If you need to experience a new beginning after an abortion, think about SaveOne. Sonja and Cynthia will welcome your questions and provide confidential information.

I am finally ready to share my abortion story. It’s true what they will think about it every single day. Just as I think about my living children every day. I know now that I will never stop thinking about the baby that I aborted. . Read this chemical abortion story >
