Is My Church Pro-Choice?

A fiery message of truth.

Your silence, says yes...

Over the past few years I have been blessed by God's grace and forgiveness. 30 years ago, I had an abortion. Something that is not only hard to admit but even more difficult to talk about. God has healed me and He has given me the wisdom and courage to be a voice for those that can not be heard. Obviously I am speaking of the 4000 innocent lives that are taken everyday in my county, the USA, but I also am a voice for woman that are or have been faced with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. So many forget about us, the other victims of this holocaust, the moms.

I spend apart of everyday focused on the issue of abortion. I reach out and desperately try to warn others of the mental, physical, and spiritual consequences of this "choice". I surround myself with pro-life Christians that keep me positive and they hold me accountable to God's word and to myself. But I am also surrounded by hate, pain, and the uncertainty of Pro-Killers. I have been accused of hypocrisy, I have been told that I hate woman, and I have been called every terrible name imaginable. None of which detours or discourages me from speaking out on be-half of the voices that cannot be heard. I do not speak out in hate, but all that oppose God's word and law, perceive it as hate. I speak out of love, love for God, love for woman, love for children, love of life, LOVE. Pro-life individuals have been called to this ministry, a tough tough ministry. We speak to people that don't want to listen, people that don't want to see, people that want us to be silent. What do we get in return? Jesus Christ, we get Jesus Christ! I can't even begin to express the oppression and destruction abortion inflicts on a post-abortive mothers and fathers. I know that when faced with an unwanted pregnancy, the world has but one answer, abortion. "If I end this pregnancy, I will erase the despair of my future." That was my thoughts 30 years ago. My despair was not erased, but it was magnified to the point of anger, self-hatred, depression, shame, guilt, pain, suicide attempts, and most of all lack spiritual peace.

When going through the healing "recovery" of post abortion, you desperately seek understanding, a listening ear, encouragement, and support. I was starved for anyone to hear my story, to wipe away the tears, to guide me to forgiveness. I sought support from my husband, my family, my friends, my Church. The issue of abortion is taboo, nobody want to face the fact that it exists. Most don't want to think about the killing of an unborn child, let alone discuss it. Most people have an opinion regarding the woman's choice, but they don't want to know the destructive aftermath of that choice. Don't show them pictures, don't tell them your story, don't judge others for their choice. Just give them a choice and walk away, sweep it under the rug, or lock it up in a closet. The most frustrating aspect of our society on the issue of abortion, is the lack of reality. Most people that defend the non-medical procedure, have either experienced it's devastation first hand and are trying to justifying their action/s. Or they are ignorant non God fearing evil doers. My husband is my greatest support, my family could care less, my friends are supportive, so where is my Church?

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" —1st Peter 4:17
The Church that I attended was there, every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning. They have office hours and Stephen Ministers available before and after services. I utilized the Stephen Ministers on a couple of occasions, they were very loving and understanding. They told me that I was forgiven and that God loves me. They prayed with and for me, I found comfort in speaking with them, but it just wasn't enough. I then sought the advise of a new friend for other issues in my life, she guided me to her Church. I began attending with my family and found great comfort in their very active pro-life stance. So much love and support was offered to me by a married couple that are both post-abortive and very active in the pro-life movement. I advanced into the next step of my recovery journey with the help of my new friends and all the exposure to people that didn't judge my past choice. There was something missing at that Church as well. I'm not sure if it was a shock going from a submissive pro-? Church to an active pro-life Church. The only way I can verbalize the transformation is that it was like sticking my hand in extremely hot water and for a few seconds the water seemed extremely cold. I was able to really start to understand God's love and forgiveness by attending Denver Bible Church, and I am so thankful for them. I was finally able to understand that many of the choices and failed relationships I faced in life, had a great deal to do with the aftermath of murdering my child via abortion. Under circumstances not related to the new Church's pro-life position, I made a decision to return to my previous Church.

"Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?" —Psalm 94:16

I knew that the Church was not active in speaking about the horrors of the abortion industry and how it is terribly wrong. I found out that a couple of years ago while a concert was being performed at the Church, a group of people that had gone to get signatures for the Personhood Amendment where told to leave. I wasn't expecting any sermons, prayers, or explanation that abortion is a sin when I returned. I was however very happily surprised that the Church was offering an abortion recovery group. In my minds thought I hoped the Church was going to address the abortion issue and begin speaking against it. Nothing more has been done to offer help to woman with unwanted and unexpected pregnancies. No discussion of any kind. It is signature collection time again for Personhood Colorado. I feel that my Church should support and encourage signature collection. The Church support the Feed The FutureOperation Christmas Child, and others. Why wouldn't they allow signature collection to put in place an amendment that would save one out of every 4 babies conceived, from a horrific death of being dismembered inside it's mother womb? God creates life and man kills it, The Church is a place of God a place of spiritual enrichment and guidance, abortion offers the opposite of that. How does God feel about a Church that does not address the 54 million unborn babies killed since 1973 after Roe Vs. Wade? In my State of Colorado abortion was legalized in 1967.

Lead me to the Cross - Hillsongs

All Churches, it's time for you to make a stand against abortion, you need to stand up for the God created lives that are destroyed at the hands of man. Even if you are personally against the murdering of innocent children, yet remain silent, your silence speaks louder than words. People, your brethren, comes to you to learn how to walk with Jesus, your silence on abortion, justifies it's acceptance! I can only imagine the tearful pain in my Lord and Savior's eyes. I truly love my Church, but if they don't step up, I believe God is calling for me to move on. I hope this doesn't happen!

 I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me. ~Psalm 119:8

It's great that the Church is there to support woman after an abortion, but why not offer support before that choice is made. Think about the number of lives you could save if you reached out prior to the murder. How many woman you could save from a lifelong of regret, pain, and possibly suicide. Think about the praise from God. Start a crisis pregnancy team, talk about the sin of abortion, be a Church of God not a Church of the World. You have opened the door to the suffering of abortion. I know that you see the blood on the hands of this nation. It's time to walk through that door and STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, use your influence to help us put an end to America's Holocaust...PLEASE!

If you or someone you love is facing an unwanted pregnancy and don't know where to turn, there are hundreds organizations and individuals that will help. Please e-mail me Kimbery Kay. Please don't murder your child!

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5
My Abortion Testimony: Never The Same 
We must go out to where the sinners are. We must go to those who would never come into our churches— to the atheists, to the religious, to the self-righteous, to the God-hating and win their souls to Christ.

For the Holy Scriptures declare in Romans 10, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?”

For so long, we have allowed Satan to invade our communities through abortuaries, the entertainment and pornography industries, religious institutions, sexually perverse establishments, homosexual parades and other sin celebrations, without a word from the Christian therein. God has called us to “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” Isaiah 58:1

We must lift up our voice like a trumpet. We must go out into the world and declare the WORD OF GOD in front of the abortuaries and sexually perverse establishments, and at the homosexual parades and other sin celebrations and call them to repentance. Our light must invade the darkness!

Jesus said, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” If we love God, we will obey his commandments, and if we love our neighbors, we will go to them with the WORD OF GOD, so that they may be saved. For, “…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”  -Michael Marcavage
