Pastor Chuck Swindoll of the radio ministry Insight for Living, has said that "abortion is the best kept secret in the church today. You are probably sitting next to someone at church who has had an abortion."

Most Christians nod their head wisely when they hear things like this, but I don't think they really believe it when it comes to their own church.

It's like those polls of Americans with respect to the public education system. Most Americans feel that the public education system is failing. Meanwhile, an unusually large number (I think it's about 80%) report that their own local school is above average.

If Christians really internalized the reality that 43% of American women have had one or more abortions by the time they reach the end of their childbearing years, and that these figures are not significantly different for churchgoers, what would change?

Would pastors talk more about abortion? Would they change what they say about it? Would laypeople be more supportive of post-abortion ministries?
