ABORTION

God loves each human life from the instant of his or her conception and entrusts this gift to the protection of a mother and father. Abortion ends the life of a child  and offends God.  It also deeply wounds the women and men involved.

If someone you know is suffering after abortion, here’s how to talk to a friend who’s had an abortion. Find help through Project Rachel Ministry.
