First, the Bible does not teach generational curses, as some ministries believe. If that were true, then God would not be merciful but tyrannical. It is His mercy and Grace that sets us free, not binds us to old ways that we had nothing to do with. Rather, we create a culture, not curse, of generations of acceptance of sins.
Sickness moves from one generation to another because we tend to emulate past practices of our families. Children mimic what mom and dad does, good or bad…but usually bad. Really, the reason why we do this is because we will be accepted for it. Every one wants acceptance. But if we pick up bad eating habits, smoking, drug use, gambling, or even abortion, we do this because we have been slowly groomed to do these things or at the very least, accept them as normal from people we trust the most.
Abortion has touched everyone’s life at one time or another. Most often it’s from our families that we hear the stories of doom from generations ago because of an unplanned pregnancy. But what no one tells you is that a very temporary situation made a very permanent ‘choice’. In my family, it was the story of a so-called back alley abortion, which later proved to be urban legend. It was a sick tactic that was used to force my hand to kill my own unborn child.
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 mother created a generational culture of death, generational sin of abortion, that continues to this day. I don’t know about generations prior to her because abortion was till the stigma and shame and failure it should be: killing an unborn child for any reason.
Since I have personally suffered the humiliation and exploitation of abortion, I do not mince words. I failed God, I failed myself, I failed my child, and my mother failed US. We trust those closest to us. I trusted my mom. And what I found out is that my dead baby did not pay my rent, a car I needed to work, finish school – just a dead child long forgotten by my mother and family that I cannot bring back. That was 38 years ago. My temporary situation changed MANY times over, my baby is still dead, my family still aborts, TWO generations later.
Their failure can be our failure if we do not stand up and stand in the gap. If we do not, then we fail our future generations who could have been free of this horrific crime against nature, God, ourselves.
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, 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 and sin because abortion is available and accepted by those YOU TRUST.
Passing prolife laws saves lives and break the generational 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.
