Sharing your personal journey of an unplanned pregnancy and your decision to choose life for your child is a beautiful praise to God's grace, and can serve as an encouragement to other women making a decision about their own unplanned pregnancy.
Sharing testimony of your abortion experience can also help a young woman with an unplanned pregnancy to consider the impact of an abortion choice. God's healing and restoration are always available to those who repent and seek God's forgiveness for their abortion. Stories of his healing mercy and grace give evidence of the amazing God we serve! We encourage you to share your stories through our blog. Carmen Pate will be interacting with those who share, and so she shares her story with you:
