We’ll be having our annual reminder of the Sanctity of Human Life this coming Sunday.  Those of us who are pro-life often talk about the babies whose lives have been taken and the tragedy of their death.  That message should be proclaimed because abortion is an assault on the image of God!  But, what about the women?  What about the loss they have experienced?  What about the regret?  What about the shame that accompanies the aftermath of their decision?  Some women have been publicly outspoken that they have no more shame or regret than they would for having their appendix removed.  I am sure there are some of those women that are telling the truth but they are not representative of all women.  I have heard and read testimonies of many women that wish they could reverse their decisions.  (Surrendering the Secret is a wonderful Bible Study for post-abortive women.)  And, to the woman who comes to Jesus, may she hear…”Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more…”  The gospel must be as loudly proclaimed as the evils of abortion.  Reardon wrote, “The greatest tragedy of abortion is that it separates women from God.  The despair which drives women to abortion is also used by the enemy to make them doubt God’s mercy.”  Please pray that we will be more enthusiastic about the life offered to sinners through Jesus than we are about highlighting the evils of our society.
