Our Ministry Leaders

SAUNDRA DECKER grew up as an extremely competitive child. Each weekend of her life was spent at a competition or a pageant, striving to win her next trophy, crown or title. Saundra finally reached her ultimate goal as she was crowned 1987 Miss West Virginia and competed in the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City. A few months after crowning the new Miss West Virginia, Saundra discovered that she was pregnant. Afraid to tell anyone, she chose abortion. A whirlwind of depression, low self-esteem and consequences led her to choosing abortion a second time. Miss Decker struggled for over 20 years emotionally until she finally gave her life to Christ in 2003. She found specific healing in a post abortion bible study, Forgiven and Set Free. The Lord has guided Saundra on a journey to help women who are hurting from their abortions. She has been active in leading Surrendering the Secret, sharing her testimony and ministering to post abortive women. Saundra recently founded Abortion Hurts God Heals! – a ministry of The Justice Foundation, where she resides as the Executive Director.
VIRGINIA LANGE found herself at the abortion clinic in 1981, on her twentieth birthday, making a choice that she knew was wrong. Having been raised in a stable family with Christian parents who set high standards and had high expectations for her future, she was deeply afraid of the shame that exposing her pregnancy would cause. She was a sophomore in college, had just been accepted into nursing school, and was in a budding romance with the man who would eventually become her husband. He was not the father, however. Fearful of losing this new relationship and the approval of her parents, Virginia fell for the lie that she had no other option but abortion. She kept her secret for 10 years before confessing to her family and church. God continued to work in her life until His perfect timing was revealed. A sister in Christ encouraged Virginia to attend the Surrendering the Secret (STS) bible study ,where she found the spiritual and emotional healing for which she had been yearning for over thirty years. She has become an STS bible study leader and serves as Financial Director for the Abortion Hurts.God Heals! ministry.

Get Connected

Abortion Hurts. God Heals! would love to hear from you. If you are facing a crisis pregnancy, need adoption resources, or are suffering from a past abortion, please contact us directly or visit our Resources page for a wealth of information.

Our ministry offers post-abortion healing groups led by other women who have gone through a post-abortion healing program. After experiencing God’s healing and going through a leader training program, they are now helping other women walk through the healing process.

AHGH also does panel-style events for churches, women’s treats, conferences, and student organizations, which are available free of charge. We hope to bring awareness and truth about how abortion hurts but give God the glory through our true stories of hope and healing through Jesus Christ.

You can hear these and other testimonies on our AHGH Radio program each Sunday evening from 7-8 PM (CST) on KSLR AM 630, the Word in South Texas.

When he had finished washing their feet,
he put on his clothes and returned to his place.
“Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.
“You call me Teacher and Lord, and rightly so,
for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher,
have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
John 13: 12-15
