It is my intention and hope that I can bring light upon a subject seldom spoken of – the fact that abortion not only kills a child, but also creates a generational culture of death within families and communities at large.
Abortion has been a part of my life since my own mother forced me to abort my unborn child when I was a teenager. Through her own pain of being coerced to abort her own ‘wanted’ child two years prior, my pregnancy made her hate my own baby even more. My mother created a generational culture of death that continues to this day.
I am post abortive; I am also a sibling to an aborted child, a grandmother to an aborted child, an aunt to an aborted child AND a cousin to an aborted child….but this is not as unique as it should be. Recent statistics show that at least 1 in 4 women are post-abortive and half of those have had multiple abortions; and many of them are a sibling or grandparents to a child lost to abortion death; and even more so, knows a friend that has aborted. Then statistically, nearly everyone has been touched by abortion. EVERYONE.
Abortion has made a generational culture of death throughout 4 generations of my family and my story is not unique. I see this all the time at the abortion facility I pray at; generations will gather like murderous vultures to bring one woman to murder her unborn child. Abortion was never a woman’s choice…it’s her boyfriend’s choice, her mom’s choice, her grandmother’s choice, etc. Make no mistake; there is a generational culture of death because abortion is available.
If my mother heard the heartbeat or saw an ultrasound of her unborn grandchild she may have relented and allowed me to have my baby, breaking the generational curse of abortion in my family. Passing prolife laws saves lives and break the culture of death; teaching our families and friends about the culture of LIFE saves lives, serving on the sidewalk of abortion facilities saves lives…..if churches would preach the culture of LIFE rather than hiding behind a pulpit that speaks a seeker message we could be in the fast track to finally abolish abortion.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9
Please come to the sidewalk, please talk to your family, and PLEASE talk to your Pastor – it could save LIVES and break the generational curse of death called abortion.
