Speak Up…

As we are confronted with the tragic reality of millions of abortions worldwide, we drop to our knees and pray for God’s mercy and grace. Pray that right now women across the world would choose life for their precious baby rather than death. Pray that the eyes of abortion doctors would be opened to the value and sanctity of every human life. Pray that we would be a church and a country who values life no matter how small, old or even functional. Pray that those in our church family who have either had an abortion or supported an abortion would run to Christ and find overwhelming forgiveness and mercy that is available in the glorious cross.

We cannot expect change in the laws of our land unless we the people let it be known that we desire and demand the change. This may look different in each of our lives, but we can all use our democratic privileges of free speech and representation and demonstration to press for legal protection for the unborn. Below is a link to assist you in contacting your congressman to express to them your feelings about and stance on abortion.

You can also use Charity Navigator to help you become more informed about the financial responsibility of any non- profit or charity.

Below are links to some ministries who work with unwed and under­age mothers who enlist the assistance of volunteers.

One very healthy thing you can do for others and yourself is to reach out to women in crisis pregnancies. You can visit Choose Life Alabama to see a list of pregnancy centers throughout Alabama.

Show a watching culture that sees children as an unwanted liability that every child is wanted and loved. If God wants us to care about the orphan, whose life is endangered because his parents are dead, He clearly wants all the more that we care about the child whose life is endangered because his parents want to make him dead.
