Mini epilogue

Thank you for all the comments, posted here and elsewhere, emailed, etc. I appreciate that you took time to read the post and the respectful responses.

I feel the need to clarify something. I do not in any way claim that the choices that we or others face are easy or simple to handle. I know very well that there are often situations that will not lend themselves to any "win win" outcome. We live in a flawed world; there will always be hardship and painful circumstances to watch and to live through. But that does not negate the fact that there are options, whether easy or not, that will allow life to continue when in the context of pregnancy.

Lastly, let me also make clear that having an abortion does not make a woman unlovable, forever cursed, or a bad person to the core. It is not the unforgiveable sin. There can be recovery, forgiveness, and restoration with great support and love, and we should be quick to offer it at every opportunity. I have supported and continue to support organizations who provide after-care with open and encouraging arms for those that have chosen abortion, desiring to provide help to these women AND men who hurt for the choice they made and need help letting go of the guilt they feel. These are very important entities, and I'm thrilled they exist.
