An open letter to post-abortive women
WorldNetDaily ^ | 12-7-12 | Matt Barber

Posted on 12/07/2012 5:31:03 PM PST by Woodland

I write these words chiefly to women and girls who have had an abortion. Still, it is my humble hope and honest prayer that anyone weighing this life-versus-death choice might also read them with an open mind and a hearing heart.

I share these truths in love. Some of you already know them. Others deny them.

Yet truths they remain.

It is through obedience to Christ and in the authority of His Spirit that I write you this letter. It may be difficult to read, but I pray you will read it.

Does this guy actually believe there are women who don't know, after the fact, what they have done?

I think so. I think many are conditioned to think that it was only a bunch of cells that didn’t really constitute a being let alone a real baby. You see it in many of the younger generations now ... “no soul”. They seem to be dead and without emotion, empathy or human feelings. It is strange and very sad.

A word about personal redemption:

Ms. Norma L. McCorvey is the “Roe” in Roe vs. Wade.
In 1969, two lawyers from Texas, Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee, were looking to overturn the Texas abortion statute. They approached a pregnant Norma McCorvey. In the end, Norma signed on the dotted line, making her the plaintiff in an abortion suit against the State of Texas.
This case would later evolve into the infamous Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade.
After over 28 years of guilt-induced drug binges and various jobs in abortion clinics in an attempt to justify her involvement in the legalization of abortion, Norma McCorvey did the unthinkable. As the former “poster-girl” for abortion who, in the words of a friend, “jumped off the poster and into the arms of Christ,” Norma truly began to live her life for herself.

In 1995, Norma was baptized and gave her life to God. She literally moved next door from the abortion clinic at which she was working to the national offices of the prominent pro-life organization, Operation Rescue.
Later, feeling a need to share her personal message, Norma founded Roe No More Ministry in 1997 with the mission of exposing the lie that is Roe v. Wade.
Norma’s faith journey eventually led her home, as she describes it, to the Roman Catholic Church, into which she was received in 1998.
Miss Norma is now dedicated to reversing what she was a part of some three decades ago.

Dr. Bernard Nathenson was the founder of NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) in 1968, and is personally responsible for over 5,000 abortions.

As told by Julia Duin:

One cold January morning in 1989, Bernard Nathanson, famous Jewish abortionist-turned-atheistic-pro-lifer, began to entertain seriously the notion of God. Seven years later, thanks to a persistent Opus Dei priest, the sixty-nine-year-old doctor, author of Aborting America and The Abortion Papers, is becoming a Roman Catholic.
