Cradle My Heart Today | Lisa’s story 12-20-17
Protecting reputation drives many young women to abortion. Listen now:
So, it’s always surprising when a public figure risks their reputation to reveal a past abortion.
Al and Lisa Robertson of Duck Dynasty opened up to Cradle My Heart Radio about how Lisa’s abortion as a teen reverberated through their marriage many, many years later.
Lisa explained that she tells her story including abortion because “there are people out there who have also had this happen who are suffering,” she says, and who have regretted it for their lifetime.
She says, “I want them to hear from somebody who is in our position to say, ‘Look, I did this. And you can find healing and comfort from Jesus in it.'”
There’s no guarantee that we’ll find acceptance from people when we disclose abortion in our past. We may have to admit to a lack of sexual intergrity, lying to protect reputation or relationships, selfish pride, and accountability for our part in breaking God’s law regarding the shedding of innocent blood.
But we all need to confess and receive God’s cleansing. Many women and men have found a safe space to do just that through abortion recovery groups in a local pregnancy center. When share our abortion experience with people who understand the mercy and love of God in Jesus Christ, the Bible says we are truly coming clean.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us oursins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1: 8-9
