Alissa Bjorn is a good friend of mine from my homeschooling days. She asked me to help with a cause very close to her heart and in turn, I asked her to write something to share with you.
I want to share with you today about something very close to my heart. It is about life, about tiny lives that are lost. Sometimes a life is taken from us when we would give anything to keep it, yet sometimes we give up that life without even giving it a chance.
Since that time my heart has been heavy for all the mothers that choose to give up their child. Did you know in Canada you can abort up until 9 months? In fact, only in Canada and one European country is this even legal. Check out this very sad but clinical overview.
So many young mothers have been lied to, told that each baby is simply cells, without a soul until an undefined time, usually thought of as birth. Pregnancy Care Centers around the world are trying to change that. They are trying to help new mothers understand the incredible gift they have been given by counseling them and encouraging them.
The Kamloops Pregnancy Care Center has helped over 300 women in the past 3 years, and all except for three girls have chosen to carry to term. This is an incredible ministry, changing the lives of so many women and infants! To do this requires money, however… but I am not asking you to give any. The Kamloops PCC has been nominated for Joey’s Only Community Revival Contest, and if they receive the most votes by the end of November they will win $25,000!
Can you imagine the impact that money could make? Anyone can vote from anywhere in the world. The life of a small child is bigger than a city, bigger than our country! So in memory of my daughter Grace I am asking you to vote, and share with those around you. Right now our votes can seriously save lives. Not often you get that chance. Thank you so much for your time, and thank you KBW for allowing me to share.
God Bless, Alissa Bjorn
What a burden of sorrow you must be carrying, Alissa, after losing your daughter. My son died after a full term pregnancy. In those months while I was waiting for his birth (and probable death) I constantly begged God to heal my baby. I couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t heal a child that was so loved and wanted when other mothers were aborting their bsbies. It is all a mystery but I trust in God’s ways totally and no longer question. Sometimes I think mothers must turn to abortion because of fear. It is a terrible thing to be frightened. I am sure the support of a pregnancy centre would mske all the difference. Thank you for sharing your story. God bless.
