Women who have had abortions, and are willing to talk about it, have a huge influence on those who are pregnant and considering the procedure themselves. Of course, the influence can go either way, depending on the stance of the woman doing the talking.
The March issue of Glamour (on newsstands now), features a large article on the subject of abortion. Please know that I am not a supporter of Glamour magazine (or similar publications), as I feel they put a huge focus on issues that lack moral substance and leave women feeling empty and wanting. However, they have a very large readership and, thereby, a large influence. In this month’s article, they are discussing abortion as the “serious health issue that women aren’t talking about”. You can find the main article here. There are also interviews with eight women who have had abortions, and an FAQ section featuring the “most asked questions” about abortion.
While, to their credit, they did publish interviews with some women who claim to have experienced guilt, emotional upheaval and remorse over their decision, more prevalent is the slant to show abortion as a “safe medical procedure”, and to remove the “scary stigma” surrounding it by speaking openly and getting out the “truth”. This is an article in a magazine that, according to Glamour.com, reaches “more than 12 million readers each month and outsells more than 98% of all magazines on the newsstand”. It’s readership target is women, ages 18-49.
This is why our prayer team is so important. With an administration standing behind freedom of choice, our media will have a much wider latitude with what they publish on the topic and will feel much less restrained with how far they go (or perhaps I should say that any shred of restraint that they were showing will be gone!). Further, not only must we pray, but we must speak out to contrast the media; certainly, those women who have been healed from their abortion experience will bring further healing and hope with their transparency, but the truth – the REAL TRUTH – from EVERY ONE OF US, must be spoken through both word and deed.
Wow. Very interesting, and heart breaking article.
Praying praying praying for this nation and our President. It’s a very scary time right now.
I agree! Heavenly Father let our voices speak truth and open the ears, hearts and minds so the truth will be received. The truth shall set us free and He who the Son sets free is free indeed.
Be Blessed In His Love
I stand in agreement with this prayer and that many would be drawn to pray and to act.
I found the article very informative. The questions that need to be asked are good ones.
What bothers me about this article is the one doctor recognized one of her patients as one who had been picketing outside the clinic.
We really do NEED to pray.
Amen, Lord. Open President Obama’s eyes to see Your Truth.
Praying for the children of the world this week from my knees and from my bench.
Thanks for all you’re doing to keep the fires burning on behalf of the unborn.
I’ve got two red envelopes ready to go out this week. Praying with you all, J
I saw this article on the newsstand and my heart broke as I briefly read.
Because of my experience with a abortion,I’m always asking God to allow me to share His truth about this subject.
About 3 weeks ago,a student from the University in my area contacted me. Her teacher is looking for someone to share their thoughts on the prolife issue for her class,Women’s Wellness.
I haven’t yet heard from the teacher. But I got a email this morning from the student,wondering if I had been contacted yet by her teacher.
Please pray that I would be able to share my story with these young college students.
Praying in Oregon.
Continuing to pray — and praying for you, too, Melinda, as you help care for your MIL in the coming days. God bless!

Wow..this is so 2 Timothy 3: 6-7…
Weak women who are captivated by people who really are only taking advantage of their naivete.
Still praying and still hoping but mostly still waiting til the day Jesus splits the sky and puts and end to all this.
