His life hung in the balance on a car ride to an abortion clinic

Cradle My Heart Today | Mary Lynn’s story 12-15-17

Mary Lynn drove with two friends to an abortion clinic over the Mexican border. Listen now:

US Rep David Schweikert (R-AZ)

However, while on the drive she had a change of heart, and sometime later gave birth to a healthy baby boy at a maternity home in Los Angeles.

Congressman David Schweikert shared the story of his birth with lifenews.com, saying, “My life hung in the balance on a car ride to an abortion clinic.”

Several years ago Mary Lynn and David were reunited, and through tears she told him about the hope and pain she felt every year on his birthday and that she prayed for him daily.

He says, “People often ask me why I am pro-life. I tell them my story and about the wonderful love I experienced from not only my adopted mother, but my birth mother as well.”

It can be shocking to learn that our parents had abortion plans. And many of us are shocked at our own behavior when the full impact of having made that choice comes into focus.

Author Gary Thomas once said that abortion is the fulfillment of our soul’s enemy’s plan to kill, steal and destroy; it kills the child, steals our peace and destroys relationships.

Yet Jesus reassured us that His purpose is abundant life. Maternity homes are still saving lives and supporting women like Mary Lynn today. That’s abundant life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 ESV
