Teen mom rejects abortion the second time around

Cradle My Heart Today | Tricia’s story 5-5-17

Tricia Goyer was 17 and pregnant. And she chose life. Listen now:

She had been pregnant before when she was only 15.

Back then she was making adult decisions, and abortion had been just one more example of her determination to have her own way.

Only later did she realize how those who sold her that abortion had exploited the naïve and ignorant girl who was looking for an easy way out.

She now says, “If I could, I’d go back and change my choice.”

So what made the difference at 17?

Tricia accepted Jesus and asked God to do something with her life.

Jesus reassures he will not shun nor shame us after abortion. He has compassion and sees us as harassed and helpless without his spiritual leadership in life (see Matthew 9:36).

Often a whole new purpose unfolds as we follow where God’s love leads. For Tricia that include work in the pregnancy help movement, supporting young women to choose life.

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37: 5-6
