How Does This Initiative Help Women?
First, if you've experienced losing a child, or been victimized by those profiting off taking the life of your child, we care, and there is healing available through the loving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the ultimate life giver, and He wants you to have abundant life through the sacrifice He made willingly for you by laying down His life for you. God loves you! "If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness."
Many mothers would not have taken the life of a child had it been illegal. It is better for women to understand the reality of what they are doing before the doctor starts violating the sacred space of their body than realize during or afterward what they have done and having to live with that reality that they cannot change for the rest of their lives. Even women experiencing the forgiveness and freedom of Christ still regret that decision and miss their child. Many women feel victimized by those who profited by that decision. Many women wish it had not even been an option for them, because in reality, it should not be an option for a mother to kill her own child. There is always help and hope for mothers, for with every temptation, God promises a way out!
Billions of advertising dollars have been spent to convince us that women cannot reach for our dreams and also be pregnant or have children. And that simply is not true. Women can reach for our dreams and experience the joy, motivation, and accomplishment of nurturing a child. More than a career or education or our lives going as planned, is the full life and legacy of having children. And that's true even if the timing or circumstance isn't what we would choose. That child has only one life to live, and as mothers, it's our job to protect and provide so that our children will live! There is help available through Pregnancy Centers across the globe that empower women with information, emotional support, parenting classes, and infant clothes and items so that every woman can enjoy reaching for our dreams while holding our children safely in our arms.
We want to help women like us avoid the pain of losing children by those who profit off taking them from us, and the trauma it causes. We want to confront the lies we've believed that killing children helps women, or that tearing a child limb from limb, or poisoning a helpless babe is better for a child than living the one and only life they've been given. Whatever life they have, it matters to them. And it matters to us. As long as a child is alive, they have a chance to overcome the circumstances or lifestyle of their parents. Parents have a chance to mature in love. And adoptive parents have a chance to give love to a child!
We want women to thrive! Women cannot thrive if we are killing our children. The emotional, mental, spiritual, and often physical damages of losing a child is not something to wish on any woman. There is nothing empowering or liberating about sacrificing a child. It's not good for women. It's not good for men. It's not good for our communities. It's morally wrong to allow it to happen. Taking the life of any child is a crime against humanity. It is inhumane of us.
Please join us in helping women choose life for their children, men protect women and children, and Colorado to take a moral stand for justice against the murder of children at any age or stage of development. Children love their mothers and depend on us to protect them. Every child has a heart. Let's show children that we have a heart, too.
"For if you really correct your ways and deeds, if you act justly toward one another, if you no longer oppress the foreigner and the fatherless and the widow, and if you no longer shed innocent blood in this place or follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever. But look, you keep trusting in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal, and follow other gods that you have not known, and then come and stand before Me in this house, which bears My Name, and say, ‘We are delivered, so we can continue with all these abominations’? Has this house, which bears My Name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Yes, I too have seen it, declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 7:5-11)
