I am reaching out to those on this site who share the feeling that life is beautiful. It isn't easy and for some, our cross is heavy and we help Jesus carry His cross. At times, we feel we are Simon , as we should be and are called to do so...my friend shared she wants to abort her baby because it doesn't fit into her ten year plan, she doesn't want to "derail" the father. She claims the baby would have a terrible life. I spoke to her about it, options, what is 9 months, the aftermath, but she doesn't want to listen. She has desensitized the choice but for me, I feel everyone has a purpose, they just have to be open to it. Life is a gift and her baby could be a gift to a family. I am reaching out to those who will help storm Heaven for this life.
Thank you

Elizabeth I sent you this message privately but am sharing it online in case it may be helpful to someone else in a similar situation:

Monsignor Philip Reilly, founders of Helpers of God's Precious Infants, an International Sidewalk Prayer / Counseling outreach ministry, told me the following one time to try and help me reach an abortion-minded woman. You can retell this to your friend if you think it will help:


"A woman has a real problem. She may think that ending the pregnancy will make their problem go away and everything will be alright again - just like it was before - but in fact - after ending the pregnancy nothing will seem right again - it will only make things worse. Here's an analogy: A woman is suffering from an extremely sore throat and a high fever. She takes two pain pills. The fever goes down and the pain subsides - for a short time - but then the pain and fever are back even worse. She chose the wrong solution to a real problem - she chose a "quick fix" - but it didn't really solve the problem - things only got worse. She goes to a doctor and gets antibiotics. In about 7 days she will be completely well again. Right choice. Just like the pain pills, abortion is a wrong solution to a real problem. Things will not go back to the way they were before a pregnancy is discovered - everything will in fact become worse.
"

Abortion is an incredibly selfish act, and many times the women are only thinking of themselves - what they think they need - what they think they want, etc. Sometimes it may be helpful to appeal to them by trying to present ways in which the pregnancy will actually end up benefiting them. They will have a little person who will love them unconditionally. They will have a little person who may one day bring a cure to Cancer to the world. They say Life is what happens while we are making plans - and God always gives us exactly what we need for our happiness. God has given her this little baby - precisely becuase He knows this will bring her great happiness. Just some ideas. Counselors at a Pregnancy Resource Center can no doubt give you more and better ideas. AND IF YOU CAN GET HER TO GO TO A PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTER AND GET AN ULTRSOUND -- GO! Ultrasounds have changed the hear and minds of many a woman - and they are always free at Pregnancy Resource Centers! Keeping you both in prayer...Jan

I am reaching out to those on this site who share the feeling that life is beautiful. It isn't easy and for some, our cross is heavy and we help Jesus carry His cross. At times, we feel we are Simon , as we should be and are called to do so...my friend shared she wants to abort her baby because it doesn't fit into her ten year plan, she doesn't want to "derail" the father. She claims the baby would have a terrible life. I spoke to her about it, options, what is 9 months, the aftermath, but she doesn't want to listen. She has desensitized the choice but for me, I feel everyone has a purpose, they just have to be open to it. Life is a gift and her baby could be a gift to a family. I am reaching out to those who will help storm Heaven for this life.
Thank you

Elizabeth,

That is so kind of you. I'm sure you could take steps to become an adoptive parent for a child who may have been aborted.
