The numbers may be deceiving....
I was watching the news the other night and the news anchor announced that abortions have dropped to the lowest level since the Roe vs Wade decision. At first, I thought, YES!….then I wondered WHY? Has there been a fundamental shift in our society that is the cause? Sadly, I had to say no, I have not seen any indication the Cultural Revolution is waning, in fact, the evidence is it is getting more blatant and radical. Then what is causing the recorded drop, my suspicion is medical abortions had dropped, however, total abortions are most likely not dropping with the advent of the chemical abortion – the Abortion Pill. This was reinforced when I was speaking with the Sanctity of Human Life leadership at Focus on the Family. We both came to the same conclusion; chemical abortions are taking off and now account for a projected 30% of all abortions, which paints the results in a wholly different light.
What does that mean for us who are working to save the lives of the unborn? I see there is both good and bad news. The bad news is Abortions are more readily available and can be done privately with minimal involvement of others and we need to find ways to be more involved and connected with these women who are considering the chemical route to the death of their baby.
The good news is the Abortion Pill process opens the door for a change of heart and change in the decision to have an abortion. The Abortion Pill is not like the medical procedure, as once it is started the decision is not easily reversible. The Abortion pill takes days and can be reversed if treated in a timely manner. We in the pro-life movement that are working to save lives need to be educated on the options we can offer. Many of the women taking the Abortion Pill question if they are doing the right thing and we need to be ready with the answer in a loving way to say there is another option – Life! The Abortion Pill can be reversed if the decision is made in a timely manner. The process is not new or uses special chemicals, but uses hormones that have been around for years and used to support a pregnancy. The folks at Heartbeat International have an Abortion Pill Reversal protocol that is proven and works (https://www.abortionpillreversal.com ) Whether you are operating a brick and mortar or mobile pregnancy center we need to be prepared to support the woman who has started down a path she now wants to walk away from. God has given us this knowledge and we can use it now with women who have time to change their minds before they lose their baby.
