When core needs are met abortion not needed

Cradle My Heart Radio | Mary Margaret Gibson interview 8-27-17

Mary Margaret Gibson

Mary Margaret Gibson has a heart to save women and children from the heartbreak of abortion.

She’s turned that passion into an international ministry training pregnancy care workers to have effective conversations about the needs that drive abortion decisions.

A new curriculum, Authentic Life, accesses the work of Dr. Kathy Koch on 5 Core Needs, a framework which resonates with people everywhere to make personal conversations flow freely toward truth.

Mary Margaret joins us on Cradle My Heart Radio this week to outline the core needs and why they’re so vital to women facing an unplanned pregnancy. According to Dr. Kathy Koch they are:

  • Security: Who can I trust?
  • Identity: Who am I?
  • Belonging: Who wants me?
  • Purpose: Why am I alive?
  • Competence: What do I do well?

Gibson facilitates understanding these needs during an unplanned pregnancy and providing support to meet them through healthy faith in God, leading to a more authentic life and more genuine hope.
