Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Abby Johnson and Eileen Smith Sunday 4-7-13
[UPDATE: podcast posted 4-8-13]
What really happens inside an abortion mill?
Women who have had abortions know, and many of us are speaking out because of our experiences there. The world is also now hearing the horrifying answer to the question of what abortion is and what it does to women and children as the Kermit Gosnell trial unfolds in Philadelphia. We’ll bring you the latest news on the trail coming up on Sunday night. We’ll also introduce you to two women who bring a unique perspective to these current events.
Abby Johnson was both a victim of abortion as well as one who sold it to other women. Abby is now dedicated to helping others leave the abortion trade.
As troubling as it is to hear from former abortion workers, it’s worse to know that some women didn’t live to tell.
Eileen succeeded in her legal action against the doctor who performed the abortion. You’ll hear her heartbreaking story of the loss of her daughter which has inspired her work to bring about the end of legal abortion everywhere.
Abby and Eileen are brave women. They are truth-tellers who have risen above the pain of the their circumstances and the grief of the past to help shine the light on the ugliness of abortion–and the true risks at stake with every abortion whether legal or not. Trauma is embedded in the past for each of them, as it may well be for you. I hope your heart will find healing and that their pain would help ease the losses in your life.
When our Lord said that our obedience to truth sets us free (John 8:32), I believe He had in mind women such as these. It would be easier in many ways for both of them to keep their stories hidden. But their silence would have only aided and abetted the industry that had hurt them both so deeply. For them, finding God’s love after abortion has been a journey straight to the heart of God’s mercy and being fully dependent on his great grace. He has truly cradled each of their hearts–just as he will cradle yours.
If your hurt is deep, I hope you will plan now to listen. You will be inspired and motivated to let your voice be heard as well.
Join us Sunday at 9 p ET for Cradle My Heart Radio with Kim Ketola and our guests Abby Johnson and Eileen Smith.
