Taboo Topics: Abortion [intro]

the purpose of Taboo Topics is dealing with some life issues that affect a lot of people but that are rarely if ever spoken about or into… and this topic, ABORTION, must be one of the hugest of those…

what to a lot of people might seem like a black and white, right or wrong kind of topic suddenly becomes a lot more tricky and entangled when you talk about decisions that have to be made to save the mother’s life for example, and other possible complications, but even when it was a wrong decision that someone made when they were in a tight spot and perhaps felt like they had nowhere to turn ours is not to judge… the purpose of hearing these Taboo Topic stories is not to figure out if the person was right or wrong but to really try and listen to their story and walk alongside them in their pain or questioning where that is a result, to love on them and be praying for them and remembering that we serve a faithful God who is amazing at bringing beauty out of ashes, at restoring the years the locusts have eaten and in all things [good, bad, and hideously ugly] working for the good of those who love Him [Romans 8.28]

so to the people who are bravely sharing their stories here, i thank you, and trust and believe that for many out there who have been suffering in silence and in some cases holding on to this secret and trying to continue walking all by themselves, that they will be a source of encouragement and hope and at the very least the knowledge that someone has walked a similar type of story before…

    It is good to provide a forum where people express that which they cannot express to anyone, I pray these stories make someone do the right thing every once in a while, in so doing not travel the road of depresion… Smart people learn through experience but the wise ones learn through the experiences of others…

  4. […] Please, don’t get me wrong, I recognize that, for some people, having a child is more than just inconvenient.  There’s a lot of complexity behind the decision, some of it systemic making it so that, for some people, unfortunately, they see no alternative (even if the alternative does exist).  I commented on this with a quote from Bonhoeffer.  And I cannot disregard the emotions and stories of the very real women who make the choice.  You can read some about this Taboo Topic on my friend’s blog here.
