Sadly, there are so many stories of celebrities admitting they’ve had an abortion, and talking about how much heartache it caused. These stories are sad, but important to let people know how devastating abortion really is! This is the last of a series of blog posts I did about some of those stories, hoping we can all learn from their mistakes and pray that God would heal their heartache… and that people will quit seeing abortion as the way to handle an unwanted pregnancy.
I can’t say I’ve enjoyed reading so many sad stories, but I hope we’ve all learned a lot from hearing them. Abortion IS a big deal. It’s murder of an innocent baby, and it causes regret, guilt, and heartache for the mother and the father. Not to mention physical problems that can come later.
I so appreciate the courage of all these people admitting to their mistakes, so others can learn from them. And I loved seeing the healing that several of these celebrities have been able to find in God’s forgiveness. There is hope even after abortion!
