If you are about to make the fatal mistake of ending a life given as a gift of God (Psalm 127:3), then I beg you to reconsider. Please don't do something that

you will regret for the rest of your life. Don't destroy something that isn't yours. That baby belongs to God, even though it may be in your womb. If you do not feel equipped to raise a baby at this time, I urge you to take another look at the situation... maybe there is a way... pray about it. If you still feel that this is an impossibility—then BE A GIVER, NOT A TAKER.

There are many families who have been waiting and desperately praying for years for the chance to adopt a child. Your child may be the answer to their prayers! Adoption is a reasonable and caring thing to do if you don't feel you can keep your baby. If you are unable to raise your child yourself, then you have the chance to give the greatest possible gift of all—the gift of life! In fact, you can give it twice... once to your baby and then, if you decide, again to a hopeful family somewhere. You can be a life-giver, or you can commit a crime that will remain on your conscience for the rest of your life! ABORTION IS MURDER—and no matter what anyone tells you, you will not "just forget about it"

You may feel cornered... like things are hopeless, and I want you to know that I am in no way insensitive to your situation or think that your problems are trivial. I simply say that abortion is not the answer. God commands us not to murder (Exodus 20:13), and going against Him will only make matters much worse. Everyone you know may be telling you you'd be a fool to have this baby—but they don't have to live with the guilt and pain of murder... you do. That baby is half yours no matter who the father is. The choice is yours. But don't forget, you are responsible to God for your actions—and after reading this, you certainly are not ignorant of the facts. You will be held accountable for your decision... I earnestly pray that you make the right one. Even though I don't know you, Jesus does, and we both love you (and your baby) very, very much!
