Trauma: A traumatic event is an experience that causes physical, emotional, psychological distress, or harm. It is an event (such as rape, sudden accidental death, natural disaster etc.) that is perceived and experienced as a threat to one’s safety or to the stability of one’s world.
How horribly ironic that one of the greatest Professional Boxers in the world is powerless after Roe V Wade to defend the life of his unborn children. Read the tragic experience of Boxer Floyd Mayweather and his former fiance, Shantel Christine Jackson…and the traumatic anger, pain and relationship implosion of a father who lost his twin children to abortion.
When couples are engaged to be married and learn of an unplanned pregnancy, there can be a great temptation to abort the child. Parents can face economic fears, professional or educational commitments, embarrassment to face the truth with family and future in-laws…or something as tragic as not wanting an unplanned pregnancy to interfere with the perfect wedding.
Couples sadly are ill prepared for the after effects of abortion. It attacks the very heart of marital intimacy. Communication and trust are often shattered by the painful, confusing and conflicted feelings which follow the procedure. Couples may surge ahead and suppress these feelings in the busy preparations for marriage…but they will catch up with them in time. We have learned from so many women and men after abortion that this procedure was a key factor in their marital dysfunction and divorce.
For other couples, the relational destruction is immediate. This is especially toxic when one of the partners, like Floyd Mayweather is given no say in the decision to end the life of their unborn children.
Please join me in prayer that Shantel Christine repent of her actions and turn to the Lord for healing and for Floyd Mayweather, that he be open to attending an abortion recovery program so this traumatic loss does not lead to further pain and suffering in his life.
