How the Pro-Choice Movement is Actually Limiting Women

Linkedin Share

Eight-hundred thousand abortions happen every year, and while many people in the world today say abortion is the easiest, safest, and most beneficial option for women, Natasha Smith, author of “Unplanned Grace,” shares how the opposite is true, and talks about the important balance of knowing the facts about abortion while cultivating relationships with women in need of support on an episode of The Dr. Jeff Show.

Throughout this conversation, Dr. Jeff Myers, President of Summit Ministries, and Smith highlight the financial, relational, and health pressures surrounding women contemplating abortion, and the all-too-common phrase influenced by the culture “I didn’t have another choice” running rampant through their minds.

When these lingering voices make them feel like the victim of their own circumstances, it isolates these precious women from debunking the lie “you can’t be successful if you have a child right now,” says Smith, even though women are capable of so much more.

Caring for and supporting a woman who is scared, alone, and fearful of what the difficult road of pregnancy ahead looks like means treating her like she has intrinsic value because she is made in God’s image.

Because the pro-choice movement limits women’s options, leaving them to figure out the aftermath of an abortion on their own, Myers emphasizes, “I need to not just be against abortion; I need to be for people.”

Smith pinpoints the importance for Christians to back up a pro-life stance with proactive gospel-centered actions.

Smith also urges the three-hundred thousand churches in America to get creative with problem solving the pro-choice agenda and to be a safe place for the 4 in 10 women who attend church for the first time after choosing abortion.

During this time in history, there are more pregnancy centers than abortion clinics across the United States, swinging the door wide open for Christians to be more informed and step in to be an integral part of the change they want to see in the world.

The more equipped and involved pro-lifers are, the more like Christ they can defend their stance to those on the other side of the aisle.

Myers and Smith’s conversation calls every Christian to tell and show women they are worth fighting for and limitless, because with their Creator by their side, walking through the unknown is always possible.
