Cradle My Heart Today | Catherine’s story 10-3-17
Abortion is often discussed as a woman’s issue. Listen now:
Finding unbiased research on the impact of abortion on women is difficult enough, but research into abortion in the lives of men is nearly nonexistent.
Catherine Coyle is working to change that.
Through her clinical work, research, writing, and conferences, she is asking tough questions no one else has troubled to ask:
- What about men?
- How many men are impacted by abortion?
- How do their needs differ from the problems women face?
- And, how do men resolve their disenfranchisement–where is the reproductive justice for men who have no legal standing in the lives of their unborn children?
With caring and compassion, Dr. Coyle brings men to the table. Yes, to hold them accountable, but to honor and respect their need for healing too.
Pro-choice rhetoric says abortion is only a woman’s issue. But every pregnancy involves a man. Their needs, especially for repentance and restoration after abortion, matter too.
Whether a man pressed for the abortion or deeply desired to parent his child, few men escape a woman’s abortion without emotional fallout to some degree.
In every case, men need the healing mercy and grace found through faith in the love of Jesus Christ.
But Lord, be merciful to us,
for we have waited for you.
Be our strong arm each day
and our salvation in times of trouble. Isaiah 33:2 (NLT)
