The moment after I accepted the Lord- I mean, the very instant after I gave my life over to Him- I remember my very first thought. It was a divinely given realization that washed over me as I saw the world now with clearer, brighter eyes: “Abortion is wrong.”
I hadn’t been thinking of it at all, but the Lord brought it to the forefront of my mind for reasons He and I knew all too well.
I was as pro-choice as you can get. Up to that point I had not given the subject any real thought or investigation, but like many (Dare I say most?) who believe in a “woman’s right to choose”, mine was essentially an emotional conviction. Yet, in the blink of an eye that all changed. There was no argument given, no moral or intellectual struggle, because God Almighty- the Creator of the universe- just reached down, and completely changed my heart.
The truth was revealed, and I remember being amazed that I could believe such a darkness was right.
There are things I have done during my days of youth and stupidity that I wish I could take back, but I can’t.
But thankfully, I’ve been forgiven.
