The abortion debate divides us into two camps…
One focused on the needs of the woman, the other focused on the needs of the child.
The result? We think we have to choose between either supporting one or the other. But when we approach the issue with this mentality, we find ourselves believing a message of scarcity. We have an either/or mentality, and actually limit our Christian influence in our culture.
We need a third option.
One that reflects God’s heart of compassion for both the women and the child. His desire for both of them to thrive during – and after – an unplanned pregnancy.
Since many women feel shame and isolation during an unplanned pregnancy, they are choosing not to turn to their local church. Worse, some women are even ostracized by their own church. They feel their only options are either abortion, or overwhelming struggle as a mom.
Why is this happening?
Churches are often not equipped to come alongside women as they make decisions about unplanned pregnancy. They often find themselves stuck in the middle of the polarizing debate, feeling angst about the position they’re supposed to take.
This is why ProGrace exists. We believe there is a better way.
