If you are pregnant and seeking help in your situation, we are here to offer you real help in any way that we can.
ASSISTANCE: Helping the helpless; Caring for the abandoned and fatherless; Practicing “True Religion”; Showing compassion for those caught up in the culture of death; Helping to restore those who have committed the sin of abortion to find forgiveness, healing, and redemption in Christ.
Abolitionists must not simply stand-up and speak-out against the injustices they seek to abolish. They must also give their lives to helping those caught up in the culture that contains those injustices. This means caring for the numerous children who were not destroyed by abortion yet born into a life of maltreatment, neglect, abandonment, and abuse. This means opening our homes to the fatherless, and our hearts to the forsaken through adoption and foster-care. This means assisting women with financial, emotional, physical, and spiritual counseling and care. This means doing to others as you would have them do to you.
If you need help, call our Assistance hotline at (855) 310-HOPE (4673) to speak to one of our facilitators. We will talk with you, pray with you, and help you find real, practical resources in your geographic area to help meet your needs.

Abortion is not simply a “social issue” or controversial hot topic. It has become so rampant in our culture, though, that most people don’t even think of it as it really is. Abortion is a process in which a pre-born child is killed inside the womb, and then pulled out of his or her mother’s uterus. More importantly, however, abortion is a serious sin before God, and causes a mother to become guilty before Him for killing her own child.It is very similar to- if no different than- child and infant sacrifice that took place in ancient cultures, where children- in and out of the womb- were brutally and bloodily sacrificed to false gods. (Leviticus 18:21, 2 Kings 17:17-18, Psalm 106:37-38).
There are different types of abortion procedures, from surgical to chemical, but none of them are ever a solution to any problems the mother might be facing. In fact, abortion will always make any situation far worse. Our culture likes to present abortion as a basic right or “option” for a woman who feels she is not ready to become a mother. However, the truth is that a woman is already a mother as soon as the baby is conceived! Furthermore, the reasons that make a mother feel she is not “ready” for a baby usually consist of things like her own future plans, her financial position, her family life at home, a relationship she is in, etc., but none of these things can ever actually force a mother into a corner and make her choose abortion. A mother never has to kill her baby- especially since every single child was created on purpose, and is a gift. (Psalms 127:3).
We live in a dark culture that is enslaved to sex and in love with death. As abolitionists of abortion, we must oppose this. A large part of this is assisting and loving our neighbor, as we are called to. While we are dissidents in this culture of death, our primary aim is not to shut down grimy abortion clinics through protest. While we actively seek to rescue children being carried into these clinics by the thousands, we do not consider “clinic ministry” to be the front lines of the battle against the evil of our age. It goes further than that. As abolitionists, we have asked ourselves “What does Christianity look like in a culture that kills its children?” Our defining purpose is to put the answer to this question into action in our daily lives. In short, we are just Christians who love our Lord and long to be doers of His word and not hearers only. That being said, we long to love the woman who wants to kill her child. We long to tell her the truth, plead for her to turn away from sin, and then meet her physical needs in order to show her that, no matter what her situation looks like. She NEVER has to kill her baby. Furthermore no matter what her situation is, we, as the Church, are called to run fervently to her side, and assist her.
If you have committed abortion, whether recently or in the past, you may be feeling many conflicting emotions.Society tells us that abortion is acceptable, even good in some cases, and yet you cannot help but feel sad and guilty.Your feelings of remorse are appropriate, as committing abortion offends God, and is a serious sin against Him. But there is hope for all sinners, no matter what we have done. They key is true repentance, a turning away from sin. God tells us in His word that human beings are created in His image. We are human beings from conception. Killing an innocent human being is wrong; it is murder. The Bible says this:
“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in His own image.”-Genesis 9:6
Because we have broken God’s Law, we deserve eternal punishment in hell. But God provided a way for us to be forgiven through Jesus.
“Since, therefore, we have now been justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God.”-Romans 5:9
This is the good news, that God showed mercy upon us by providing a way for us to be reconciled to Him. To do this, He came to earth as an “unplanned” pregnancy. Jesus was born to an unwed, poor mother. He was born without sin and lived a perfect life, ALWAYS making the right choices. He never sinned.When the time was right, Jesus took the sins of His people upon Himself and bore the wrath of God on the cross to pay our debt. After three days, He rose from the dead, conquering sin and death and applying His perfection to us.
“For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”-2 Corinthians 5:21
If we fall at the foot of the cross, submit to Christ as Lord, turn away
completely from our sin and from our wicked ways, believing that Jesus paid for our sins, then we are forgiven and are made a new creation in Christ.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
-2 Corinthians 5:17
True repentance is completely necessary, and unless it happens, we are still enemies of God. Repentance means completely turning away from sin in every single way possible, so that your heart is completely submitted to God, and so that your lifestyle is not one that is against Him. We
would love to help you figure out exactly what repentance looks like for you, and walk you through it in love and prayer.
If you have committed the sin of abortion, the harsh truth is that you have done something that God hates. However, you don’t have to carry that guilt and shame any longer. Fall at the foot of the cross, repent from sin and trust in Christ.
