Life is a right, not a privilege. Even our nation’s Declaration of Independence declares, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The Sanctity of Human Life (SOHL) is to be acknowledged, cherished, and protected. But for the survivors of failed abortion attempts, their lives feel hopeless and empty. Many survivors are dismissed or silenced by an indifferent society.
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is an annual event held in churches nationwide every January. For abortion survivors, SOHL is more than a one-day event. It is a lifetime of healing.
It’s time to break the silence. The silence that is held on the shoulders of nearly 90,000 abortion survivors. The secret that the abortion industry doesn’t want anyone to know: babies survive abortions.
It is time to shed light on the lives and stories of these survivors who are walking among us. It is time for our churches to stand hand in hand to support them. To pledge to continue to walk with them. It’s time the abortion industry is outted for its secrets. If it isn’t a baby then how are these survivors walking among us? They are the face of abortion. The gruesome reality that we have been taking innocent lives. Today is the day you rise up and share the truth.
They are among you and I. Walking, living, thriving. But they have a story. It’s time we share it.
The Abortion Survivor Network is like an oasis. A safe place for survivors to finally share their story, be themselves, be vulnerable, to finally heal.
I felt like such a freak for so many years. I had no idea anyone else there had gone through the same thing. And then I Googled “abortion survivor” and found The Abortion Survivors Network. It changed my life to know I wasn’t alone.
