CompassCare

From CompassCare: 39 women and their babies were served at the three CompassCare locations last week ---------- Prayer: "Landry" called CompassCare and asked for an abortion appointment. When her nurse explained CompassCare does not provide or refer for abortion but provides vital health services for pregnant women, Landry saw the value in coming to an appointment to learn more about her pregnancy and health. The primary thing Landry wanted to discuss was her previous abortions, one having taken place only a few months ago. She described a traumatic experience with an incomplete chemical abortion which resulted in an emergency room visit and required surgery to complete—threatening her life. Although she feels she and her boyfriend cannot parent a third child right now, she dreads the thought of getting another abortion. "I don't want another abortion," she said, describing her experiences as "horrific and painful." Because of her circumstances, however, she did not believe that she could parent the baby. She continued to vacillate, giving many sensory details of her previous abortions dating back to her teen years. When she saw her baby on the ultrasound screen and learned she is a little over seven weeks into her pregnancy, she continued to muse out loud about abortion. "If I can just take a pill it seems less cruel to the baby. I don't want to use the machine...that would be evil." She began to cry feeling so trapped that she couldn't see how even God would love her. Her nurse took the opportunity to share the love, grace, and redemption available in Jesus Christ. God does love her! "I'm tired of doing things my way," Landry said. She prayed with her nurse to surrender her life to Christ. She was excited about the idea of connecting with a church in her neighborhood which she knows to be a loving place. Pray for Landry. She is still undecided about getting an abortion. Pray Christ fills her heart and mind with His truth and hope and her uncertainty is turned to certainty: the certainty of a mother who is looking forward to having her baby. ---------- Praise: "Lynn" is a college student who came to CompassCare considering abortion last month. She was so worried about the potential shame of a pregnancy out of wedlock in her Christian community that abortion seemed like an appealing alternative. She said the father of the baby supports her choice no matter what. Lynn's ultrasound revealed a ten-week-old baby. She said she needs to talk to her mom before she can make a decision. Weeks went by before her nurse was successful in reconnecting with her. Lynn reported she has her mother's support to continue her pregnancy and raise her child: she's decided not to get an abortion! Praise God for working in this situation to give Lynn the grace and courage she needed to say no to abortion and yes to parenting her child. Pray she remains strong through her pregnancy and beyond!
