Abortion Hurts. God Heals! at the 2016 Texas Rally for Life
Abortion Hurts. God Heals! participated in the 2016 Texas Rally for Life in Austin, TX, on Saturday, January 23. At a Ministry Fair held before the Rally, AHGH handed out information and spoke to Rally Supporters about our Post-Abortion Healing ministry, our radio program on 630 KSLR – the Word in South Texas, and our Panel Events for churches, pastors, women’s ministry leaders, and retreat events.
We were also able to visit with, and gather additional information from, Pregnancy Care Centers, Adoption Agencies, and Maternity Homes in the South Texas area that provide support and resources for pregnant mothers, which helps them choose Life for their babies. We were honored to meet so many people who are courageously standing for Life and who spoke to us in support of our ministry!
AHGH Team Members then participated in the March to the Capitol with our Abortion Hurts. God Heals! banner, sharing the message that God Heals! women from the pain of abortion when they come to Him and surrender. At the Capitol steps, we stood in solidarity with Post-Abortive women from the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, sharing the message that “I Regret My Abortion”. We heard words of regret from other women and family members; some had experienced God’s healing, others had not. The most heart-warming, and tearfully joyful story, was that of a young mother who courageously gave her baby up for adoption just 3 months ago. She came up to us at the Rally, thanking US for having the courage to stand up as women who had abortions and suffered the consequences. We know the selfless love and courage it took for her to choose Life. We considered HER the heroic one. What a beautiful exchange of God’s grace, unconditional love, and mercy.
It was a beautiful day for a Rally for Life in Austin! We were blessed to be a part of it and hope to do it again next year!
