RESPECT LIFE CORNER
“The devastation of abortion brings with it many challenges. Often, the people who have participated in an abortion are unaware of the countless ways it is affecting their lives. It is scary to tell someone about a past abortion. It requires great trust in that person’s love and trust in God. But with the help of an abortion healing ministry, people can successfully work through abortion-related challenges. God’s grace can bring true healing to those who trust in His infinite mercy.” 2019, USBBC, Washington, D.C. respectlifeprogram.org/healing
