Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is coming up January 18. The day is set aside to recognize the sanctity of human life, from conception to natural death.
While we usually think of women who suffer guilt from having had an abortion, men do, too.
What can you do to uphold the sanctity of human life?
“When I was just 15, my girlfriend and I got sexually involved—and in spite of so-called ‘safe sex,’ she got pregnant. We couldn’t see a baby—just a problem. So, my girlfriend had an abortion. Then, grieving and angry, she broke up with me. My guilt was so terrible that I turned to alcohol to shut out thoughts of suicide. But four years later, I woke up one night knowing it was time to deal with what I’d done. All night long, through prayer and searching the Scriptures, I wrestled with God. Finally, freedom came: I knew He had forgiven me. But I will never forget the pain—or the baby I couldn’t see.”
The Lord wants men like Steffen to receive His forgiveness and healing. But He works through His people—people like you.
Will you be a voice for compassion?
