Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Did you know that every 26 seconds an abortion occurs in the US?  This accounts for more deaths than heart disease or cancer, yet the church largely remains passive. The world has silenced the church on the subject of abortion by making it political.

As Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS) approaches, I'm saddened that so few churches step up to acknowledge this travesty.  I recognize that you have many vital issues that must be addressed, and this topic can be polarizing. Yet, the reality is this battle of life and death has been set before the church.  Proverbs 24:11 states, "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter."  Real Options for Women is a vehicle that can be used by the church to meet this need.

So, my challenge to you and your church is this:  Make a bold stand for the unborn on January 15th, 2017 (SOHLS) in remembrance of the 55 million lives lost since the court's decision regarding Roe vs. Wade. 

Some of our supporting churches choose to run our baby bottle campaign along with SOHLS.  All funds from this campaign will be used to continue the work of Real Options for Women. 

To request inserts, bottles, videos and speakers, click HERE. These materials will bring awareness to those in need and how the church can meet that need. Please let me know if we can do anything more for you as this important date approaches.

And thank you for being BRAVE!

Post-Abortion Recovery Bible Study
Sep
1
to Sep 30

Post-Abortion Recovery Bible Study

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Nearly half of all pregnancies to American women are unintended; four in ten of these end in abortion.

  • 1 in 3 women will have an abortion by the time they reach 45.

  • Over half of the women who have had an abortion have had more than one. 

This means there are many dear sisters in Christ who are struggling alone with a decision, sometimes made decades ago.

Real Options offers a bible study called Forgiven and Set Free.  This study will allow women who have gone through an abortion the opportunity to overcome guilt and shame and live in the FREEDOM God has called them to.  

Sara Hamilton, our Post-Abortion Recovery Director, leads the groups and keeps confidentiality as her utmost priority.  Because of this, we will only announce publicly that the next study will begin in September.  For more information, please contact Sara.  

And welcome to a life of FREEDOM
