Whatever the case, you are likely to be scared, confused and depressed. In most cases, one option comes to mind. I would be surprised if abortion never crossed your mind. You wonder if you should get an abortion. You know that if you get one, you need to do it early. They say that if you wait to get that abortion, it will be more painful and risky. It’ll cost you more bucks. If you love someone in this crisis, you are likely to want her to abort. Your culture has told you that because it is legal, it is okay. Your daughter or girlfriend or wife can go on as before. No one need know! Why put her through that? Why should she bear the stigma? Right?

I know that many of you identify as believers. Still you may still be severely tempted. You may know that your family, pastor and others from your local church family are prolife. You sense that they would strongly disapprove if you get that abortion. You’ll be going against all they hold dear. What about the nearest Planned Parenthood in your area? You can do it secretly, can’t you? No one would ever know. They would keep your secret. If you are a Christian mom, husband or boyfriend, you may have identified yourself as prolife. Now however, someone you love is facing this situation. You know that your pastor would not approve of what you are tempted to do. You are considering driving her to the Planned Parenthood facility to get it done. No one need know, and all of you can go back to what you were like before, right?
