Parent Minute

My daughter just told me she had an abortion.

Posted on 5/17/2019 by Greg Yoder

I can’t imagine a more painful conversation. Knowing that your own flesh and blood aborted your grandchild. There are many ways you can handle this. I love what John Piper at Desiring God says: “Jesus offers forgiveness for women who have aborted a child. He offers it to men who have encouraged their girlfriend or wife to abort their child. He offers it to employees of abortion clinics. And he offers it to those who are apathetic and doing nothing about this great evil in our society.”1 As parents who find themselves here, we MUST extend forgiveness and unconditional love. This is a time to be Jesus. Maybe God will use this to do an amazing work in a daughter’s life.
