Can I be Forgiven for Having an Abortion?

 
Ron & Cindy Sutton

November 05, 2008


Some wounds cut so deep that only one thing can begin the healing process: receiving forgiveness. Countless women cry out, "I didn't believe what they told me at the clinic. I knew better. I knew it was a baby-not lifeless tissue-in my womb, but I went through with it anyway. Even if God can forgive me, how will I ever forgive myself?"

Many others try to bury the pain: but they can't. The wound cuts too deeply--to the very core of a woman's being. Living in denial never helps; it may temporarily dull the pain but it can't take it away. Pretending not to know, denying what you do know, will ultimately only intensify the emotional trauma. The pain must be honestly acknowledged, brought to the surface, and released in order for the wound to be healed.


Abortion is contrary to all that is sacred to womanhood and true femininity. There is nothing this side of heaven that compares to the wonder of conception, the development of life in the sanctuary of the womb, and the miracle of birth. It is a woman's nature to give life. Abortion violates her most intimate instincts.


Some women say that the aftermath of abortion is worse than that of rape. In fact, in many ways abortion is akin to rape: abortion is a brutal assault on innocent life, on a woman's body, and on the dignity of womanhood. But in the case of abortion the victim consents to the "rape" and even pays the "rapist" for the assault. (I will draw parallels between rapists and abortionists in a future pamphlet. You may conclude that the comparison is faulty because a woman consents to abortion. But don't forget the other victims of abortion: not one unborn baby has ever consented to an abortion.)


Something sacred, something precious, is taken from a woman in both rape and abortion. In one case it Is taken by force; in the other, by consent. Because consent is involved, true healing can only begin when the wrong is acknowledged and forgiveness is sought. That's why pretense and denial are so devastating: forgiveness can only be experienced by those who honestly admit they need it.


Have mercy upon me, 0 God according to Thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me" (Psalm 51, The Bible KJV)


The preceding verses are a portion of King David's repentance and confession for committing adultery with Bathsheba, and for arranging the murder of her faithful husband, Uriah. Several passages in Psalms record the deep sense of guilt and grief David experienced after his sin. He suffered physically and emotionally until he confessed his sin.


At first he tried to bury it-cover it up, but the internal pressure was too intense. Relief came only when he broke the silence and acknowledged his sin.


"When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long .... I acknowledged my sin to Thee and my iniquity I did not hide, I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord; and Thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin" (Psalm 32:3,5 The Bible, NAS).


David not only received God's forgiveness; he was able to forgive himself. He knew that the mistakes of the past could not be erased. All he could do was receive forgiveness and get on with his life. The past is over; you can't change it. But you can move away from the pain of the past and face the future with hope if you will do what David did: Repent of your sin, accept God's forgiveness, and forgive yourself


Can God forgive you for having an abortion? Yes. He forgave David for adultery and murder. He can forgive you for having an abortion.


I have shared the story of David's sin, repentance, and confession with many women who thought they couldn't be forgiven. The response of one woman inspired the pamphlet titled "Empty Arms." Upon hearing how God had forgiven and restored David, this woman was able to receive forgiveness and also to forgive herself After praying together, she told me, "This is the first time I have felt peace inside since I had my abortion 15 years ago. Now I can believe God has forgiven me."


God wants to do the same for you. he loves you-cares for you. You matter to God. He wants to help you-to heal you. He wants you to receive mercy and forgiveness through repentance and confession. The Bible says that God actually delights in mercy (Micah 7:18 KJV). He wants to be merciful to you. God loves you. He paid a great price in order to help you.


"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16)


Your aborted baby has already passed into the hands of a loving and merciful God. You can't bring your baby back: but you can move away from the pain of your past by placing your life in God's hands.


You don't have to fear One who loves you so much. You won't see condemnation in the eyes of the Savior who died on the cross for your sins. He knows your pain and He is willing to share it: if you will let Him. He knows your sin and He is willing to forgive it: if you will acknowledge it and seek His forgiveness.


"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but who so confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy" (Proverbs 28:13 The Bible, KJV).


Jesus died on the cross that you might be forgiven, healed and restored.


"Surely He hath born our griefs, and carried our sorrows...He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:4-5 The Bible, KJV)


Do you want to be forgiven? if so, pray the following prayer, or pray in your own words, if you prefer


"God I come before you in the name of Your Son Jesus who died on the cross for my sins. I acknowledge my sin of abortion. I am truly sorry. Please forgive me….


"By Your grace I will never repeat the sin of abortion. With Your help, I will endeavor to influence others to choose life. Now I ask you, Lord, help me to forgive myself. The hurt I have held in place of the baby I once carried, I now release to You. Please heal my heart and help me move away from the pain of my past. Amen."


Once a person sincerely repents, confesses a sin, and asks forgiveness, God not only forgives; He forgets the sin.


"I even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins:  (Isaiah 43:25, The Bible, NAS).


You may not be able to completely forget your sin as God does, but you can believe that you are truly forgiven- if you believe what the Bible says.


"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (I John 1:9 The Bible, KM).

I almost lost my life when I discovered that my husband was seeing another woman because I couldn't give him a son for 5 years of our marriage. It broke my heart and I started surfing the Internet in search of a solution and found out about dr John in an article written by (Miracle). I contacted dr John through WhatsApp at +2348147766277, and told him all my pains. Dr John gave me his word that my husband will return within 24 hours and that I will be pregnant within a month when my husband returns. I paid the sum of 345 euros to Dr John for some (spiritual items) and I got the result as he said it and today, my husband and I are back and unbreakable with our girl we call (JOY). You may be going through hell now, but I tell you it won't last forever, because is here to Dr John help us all. You can chat with him on his WhatsApp line at +2348147766277 to get a permanent solution.

What more can i say. Am over joyed and filled with so much happiness as i am talking about this man that i was almost deceived not to contact online because of the people online that are telling lies against his work all just because he ask them to send money down to get materials needed to get the spell casted or they should send the material themselves. To be sincere with all of you that really need a spell caster online or that wish to meet with this Best spell caster in the world face to face, Dr Kuq Ya the chief priest to Kuq Ya Spells that was named after his temple is the best and most powerfull spell caster online i have come across in my entire life. Because all he do is real and he is so upfront and sincere with his customers that came for his help and not to play and joke with them and there emotions and if you go to his temple to joke with him he will not respond to your emails again as he is too busy responding to serious people all around the world. Three months ago i was confused, As my lovely husband was telling me that he do not think if our marriage will work again after given birth to 2 boys and 1 girl. The moment he told me that i was shocked and i thought he was joking with what he said,As the reason for what he said was because i challenged him of going out with another lady. Because during when he said that i was thinking everyday about my Job that i lost due to the fact that the company that i work with said they do no longer need my services because they can pay for it and also his attitude lately by cheating on me. Only for the father of my kids to also come and tell me that he thinks our marriage is over and do not think if it will work again. I was so frustrated and confused during that particular period in time as i do not know were to turn to for help. The next morning after my domestic work, I got to my computer and i was just browsing through my face-book only for me to meet with my friend called Pena that we went to school that was online and i narrated all i was passing through to and she said to me that it is just a little problem, That she has passed through same situation before with her husband two years ago, That she could only get her help from a spell caster that is so trustworthy and dedicated in all he do, That this spell caster that she is talking about really saved her marriage and she went further to tell me not to be afraid as the spell casting process is harmless and do not also have any side effect that is just to get this my problems in my family rectified and back to normal. Because the moment he made mentioned of spell caster i was afraid but she has to make me understand and also to know that this spell caster is reliable and good to deal with to avoid all this fake spell casters online. Really she gave me the email address and phone number of the spell caster and i found out that many people has talked good and bad about him as the bad things they said about him almost discourage me but i listened and followed the advise of my friend and i contact him. After just two hours that i sent him an email that contain my problem and with a phone number and country that i am from he responded to my email and ask me to send some of my personal information's and that of my husband which i also did and after then a mail came that contain the materials needed to get my spell casted. On the email he said if i can get the materials over here in this country called United Kingdom that i will send it down but if not that i have no any-other option than to send down the cost of the materials to him because the materials that was requested was spiritual materials that will not be easy to get on my own. I followed all he said and with no doubt and fear. To cut the long story short, am here to recommend this great spell caster to every one because after bringing back to me my husband with his spell casting, i think saying thanks to him online by spreading his name everywhere is the best. So am recommending this great spell caster to you all out there that has been confused and has been facing one problem or the other to contact this spell caster and get all your worries solved and be happy as there is noting he can not do for you as an individual. Send your complains and seek for help from him via his both emails that is as follows: great.spellcaster@yahoo.com. Note: He is a busy man and this message is for only serious people that really require help to get any form of problem in there life solved. I Gloria Kifita a Citizen of the United Kingdom say contact this spell caster and you will not regret it at all as i am not trying to place fake testimony about him like so many fake and lies about the so called fake and scam spell casters online. AS THIS IS A TRUE LIFE STORY.

My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found Dr.Todd website online and i ordered for a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 24hours. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.
