Keep your baby! Don’t let anyone persuade you otherwise

by | Feb 4, 2015


Editor’s note: Last week we posted our annual request for responses from our readers to this question. What would you say to someone who is not hostile or belligerent (that’s a whole other topic) but who simply has never engaged the abortion directly?

What could be said out loud in one or two (at most three) minutes?

Periodically I will be running responses. If you would like to contribute, please email me at Just to simplify matters, I will use the respondent’s first name and the initial of the last name.

The following is from Chris R.

unbornbaby25Don’t do it! I know it’s hard…. I was first-time pregnant, single, fearful, ‘alone’, no money to take care of a baby, etc. At the dr. appointment, 4 months along (maximum time to perform the abortion the dr. said, at the time), I just couldn’t do it (abort the baby), holding my stomach. I went home and carried my baby full term; and am I glad I did!

The wonder of holding my child for the first time was so beautiful. And then, he became the greatest blessing in my life, my right-hand man (even at a young age), and a leader in school, church, and in the community, and even to his younger siblings, ‘til an auto accident took his life at 22 years.

It still bothers me emotionally to think I could have taken his life, but I am so thankful for the years I did have with him. Keep your baby! Don’t let anyone persuade you otherwise. He or she will be a special blessing to you. And even in tough times, God will take care of you both, too, in unexpected ways!
