The need for support is at the heart of most abortion decisions today. The great majority of women who abort say they can’t afford a baby according to guttmacher.org.
Laura wondered what if someone were to give pregnant women support and even a cash payment to carry them through the short-term financial crisis of pregnancy and giving birth?
She started the nonprofit Save Unborn Life to do just that.
Working through referrals from pregnancy help centers, SUL contracts for a payment of $3000 to women who agree to care for themselves properly during pregnancy and give birth.
Laura says, “Over 100 groups offer cash to women to pay for abortion procedures—imagine if everyone against abortion would fund this effort to help women financially.”
It really is that simple.
Laura’s challenge to outgive those supporting abortion echoes the exhortation in Hebrews 13:16: And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
