What Would You Say To Laura?


Cities4Life wants the “What Would You Say” posts to be as interactive as possible. Not only is this good practice for thinking on your feet during everyday encounters you might have with people who oppose your worldview, but it is also good training for those who want to do Frontline Ministry outside of abortion mills. And remember, scripture addresses the root of these problems.

After reading these REAL-LIFE statements and questions, please leave a comment as to how you would respond if you were face-to-face with Laura.


It’s normal to wonder about the baby. I wonder about the potential children that I chose not to have & probably always will. Having an abortion can be a growing & learning experience. I look at mine as another chapter in my life. We are very fortunate to have this option. I have had regretful moments since mine, but then reality sets in and I can see the good in each one of them. It will soon be over but then the process of healing will be just beginning.” ~ Laura

    Well Laura, it is a good thing that you have been thinking about the baby. The first step for you would be acknowledging that there was a very special baby that had been given to you by God. I understand that you feel loss. That baby, that unique person made in the Creator’s image, is gone from this world forever. What exactly do you think happened to make that baby ‘go away’?? We have to be honest about what happened to your little one. Laura, another step of healing for you will take place when you acknowledge that your abortion was murder. This is hard, Laura, but your baby died a very sad and gruesome death by your own hand.

    God’s word considered that little life a precious blessing and His perfect judgement would pronounce you guilty of shedding that innocent blood. Thankfully, God’s word is also full of the grace and mercy that is extended to those who sin.

    There will be no healing until there is forgiveness; there will be no forgiveness until there is a repentance for your sin. That would begin a real ‘learning and growing’ experience! Laura, you can be born again… there is no sin so black that God has not paid the price for in full.

    It is actually very UNfortunate that you and millions of other women have had and CHOSEN the option to kill your sweet little babies. Sometimes we convince ourselves that because everyone else condones our actions that somehow that makes it ok. When I was in sin, I used lots of excuses to make myself feel good about what my conscience told me was wrong. Laura, it sounds like your conscience is trying to tell you what you’ve done was wrong since you have used words like ‘regret’ and mentioned your need for ‘healing’…turn to Christ for the Truth and set your life on a new and narrow path!

    Amen, Jeannette. I don’t know that I can add anything to the words you have given.

    This seems like a very romantic view on abortion. The term in itself covers up what you are actually doing-willingly consenting to murder. So what is a “learning experience” for you is a hellish experience of broken limbs and torn flesh for the baby. It is sickening and it is natural for you to be sickened by it. The Lord Jesus does offer hope and healing, but He would rather you not do it in the first place. Wouldn’t you rather have a healthy baby than convince yourself that you are okay with the murder?
