Christian Post: The Importance of Love in the Pro-Life Movement

I grew up in a Christian home where even though my entire life we attended church, I never knew the full extent of the pro-life movement.

At 19, I discovered I was pregnant. I was the oldest of four and was terrified to tell my parents. I thought that they would kick me out, that I would be homeless, and that my dreams were over. It felt like there was no support out there for me, and the father of my baby felt the same way.

We grew up knowing abortion was wrong, but at that moment we just thought it seemed like a quick fix and we would just deal with the consequences of a broken heart later. We scheduled the abortion and paid for it, but when I went into the abortion room, I started to hyperventilate and eventually passed out. Once I came, I was told I needed to reschedule and come back another day. After returning to the waiting room, I told the father of the baby that we were still pregnant, and in a decisive moment of both fear and courage, we decided we would figure it out together and keep our baby.

Twenty-three years later, I’m so glad we made that decision. Today, my wonderful son is married to the love of his life and working in the pro-life movement. I can’t imagine my life without him or his father, who soon became my husband.
