How do you reply your teenage daughter when she tells you she’s pregnant?
I’ve spent near 30 years standing exterior abortion mills speaking to women and men about alternate options to abortion, pleading with them to know that their youngster is a present from God and it doesn’t matter what obtained them on this state of affairs their youngster is a blessing. When I first began to have children I might deliver them with me to pro-life occasions and costume them in pro-life t-shirts. I used to be the proudest father on the planet when my children would ask me if they may protest abortion with me or ask me to assist them write a paper at school about abortion.
I typically speak to my daughters about how we should love everybody and ensure younger women who’re scared know there may be assist for them and individuals who love them of their darkest hours. I witnessed my children speak to individuals at our cubicles about how mistaken abortion is and the way each single youngster is a needed youngster and must be welcomed in love.
I can actually say that once they had been younger I by no means imagined that one among my very own daughters could be that scared teenage woman who’s scared of telling her dad and mom she’s pregnant. I simply assumed that they might develop up, fall in love, get married after which have children.
The day I walked into the hallway and noticed my treasured angel crying and afraid to inform me what I already knew was a troublesome day. Not as a result of I needed to face the fact that my daughter is pregnant, however as a result of I needed to see that worry in her eyes and listen to her say the phrases “Are you mad at me Dad?”
To be sincere, anger was the final emotion I felt at that second. I hugged my daughter tight and simply instructed her I beloved her. When she requested me if I used to be mad I mentioned with out hesitation, “NO! How can I be mad at you for blessing me with my first grandchild?”
Over the years I’ve talked to many children from Christian houses, pastor’s daughters and even pastors themselves who had been strolling into abortion mills as a result of they had been afraid of how individuals would react. I’ve heard pastors discuss how they feared what their church members would say to seek out out their youngster obtained pregnant out of wedlock. I’ve heard younger women inform me they had been afraid if their dad and mom discovered that they might be kicked out of the home and disowned. An offended father as soon as threw me to the bottom as he pushed his crying daughter into the abortion mill to make her have an abortion she didn’t need.
I’m going to say one thing that will not sit properly with many individuals; the abortion charge in church buildings is immediately brought on by those that neglect the Mercy and Grace Christ exhibits us each day. It blows my thoughts that we’d be extra frightened about hiding a sexual sin than accepting the reward of life. Instead of embracing absolutely the grace of God we reject life itself destroy His picture.
Pregnancy will not be a sin; being pregnant will not be a illness, and being pregnant will not be one thing to ever be ashamed of. Every single youngster is a blessing from the Lord and needs to be welcomed and embraced with all of the love on the planet. When we react in anger and disgrace we reject grace and have forgotten the Divine Mercy Christ confirmed us when He gave His life for us. So many individuals select to sacrifice the kid to cowl a sin that has already been paid for in full by the very God who gave created that youngster.

Many years in the past I used to be instructed a narrative by Judie Brown of American Life League in regards to the day her daughter instructed her she was pregnant. Judie instructed us that the primary phrases out of each mum or dad’s mouth needs to be, “I love you.” I discovered this lesson when my daughter was nonetheless a child herself and by no means actually imagined I must put this into observe along with her. Nineteen years later that’s precisely what I needed to do and I thank God for these clever phrases Judie taught me so a few years in the past.
When my daughter instructed me she was pregnant I used to be crammed with pleasure realizing that I’m now a grandfather. The following week I drove her to our native disaster being pregnant middle the place I used to be acknowledged instantly for my pro-life work. We had been beloved, welcomed and by no means as soon as judged within the least. The day after Christmas I met my daughter on the physician’s workplace the place we discovered she is having a bit of woman. In May I’ll maintain my granddaughter in my arms for the primary time and I can’t be extra excited.
Next week I’ll be part of lots of of hundreds on the March for Life in Washington D.C. and the next week on the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. While these occasions are a name for an finish to youngster killing they’re additionally a name for us to point out love and mercy to all and educate the world how one can embrace the reward of life and reject the lies that lead so many to abortion.
Every youngster is a present from God and each pregnant woman must be instructed how beloved she is.
