Take Action

Each month we will offer a list of action ideas so you can defend, honor, and celebrate Life in your churches and communities. This month, we are looking at abortion doctors and providers.

C rossing denominations and theological differences, we generally consider regular church attenders to be “good” people–law-abiding, put-together, and of good moral integrity.  But while, yes, Christians do seek to become more like Jesus, we know enough of the darkness in our own hearts to see that we aren’t “good” people—we are sinners redeemed by God.  And our God is so amazing that He forgives us! But do we really believe He can forgive anyone?   Do we stumble at the thought of Him offering forgiveness to perhaps the most egregious of sinners and sins, abortion doctors and providers, those who kill the unborn in the womb?   And can we not only accept that God can redeem them but celebrate their repentance and welcome them to our churches?  My friends, if we don’t believe this, we don’t believe in God’s forgiveness.  No, we don’t have to rejoice in their past horrible needs.  But can we show the love of God to abortion doctors and providers who need to know that they can be forgiven?

Action Ideas:

  1. Find the names of abortion doctors at your local Planned Parenthood or abortion clinic and pray for them.
  2. Talk to abortion providers you may know about what they do.  Listen to them without condemnation and share God’s gift of salvation.
  3. Have former abortion doctors share about their experiences and salvation at your church.
