A newly-discovered personal blog by yet one more post-abortive Christian woman:
How could I dare to go into a church with all I've done? The very first one I went to, I found myself sitting in the parking lot crying. I just couldn't go in. I cant even tell you how many times I did this. I will never forget driving down the street one day, and seeing this church on the side of the road with this huge sign that read....abortion is murder. You can only imagine how I felt. This sign kept me out of church for quite a while...Satan used our own church against me as a weapon to keep me away, and he is still doing this to millions of women world wide.Which is the exact trouble with this use of such signs. They alienate countless women who feel they themselves are being "damned for all time" by those inside that church-- instead of the act of abortion they may have chosen, or may not have chosen personally themselves, but was "chosen" for them.
Doesn't the world, and especially the Christians in this world, think that, once we grieve and regret our abortions, even privately, that we already know exactly what it was that we've done??
Hate the sin, not the sinner, Christ's every action taught us.
