43% of all women have had at least one abortion by the time they are 43 years old. That equates to 1 in 3...actually almost 1 in 2!! (Of this population, 79% claim to be Christians.) To put this in perspective, take a church’s population of women (and to be conservative) divide it by 3. That will give you the approximate number of women INSIDE a church that daily carry the burden of at least 1 past abortion!! As quoted from Surrender The Secret website.
Why share these statistics? To let you know that you are not alone. You are not the only woman who has had an abortion. I was a Christian when I had my abortion. Like me, many women felt that abortion was their only option when that crisis pregnancy happened. I personally struggled later on in life when I wanted to get closer to God. I knew that my sin of abortion was not unforgivable, however I could not understand how God could forgive a Christian who had done what I did. I spent weeks praying at the alter in my church and begging God to forgive me.
One day I got it!! It was there waiting for me every day, I just had to accept it. Forgiveness, love and grace. To this day, very few people in my life know of my abortion. It is not something that I am proud of or boast about BUT there was freedom for me and there can be freedom for you too.
