For You To Think About 

Every week, Birthmothers receives phone calls from women who face an unplanned pregnancy. They asked to be matched one-on-one with a volunteer Friend for support.

Now homeless, she was contacting us from a stranger’s house. She had nowhere to go. But that’s not all. Just that morning, she had been treated at the hospital for dehydration.

This woman had physical needs (housing), medical needs (dehydration), relational needs (a toddler to care for) and emotional needs (a pregnancy with no support). She was trying hard to carry the baby to term in the face of overwhelming adversity.

“If we are to encourage women not to have an abortion,” says Ruth B. Graham, author, speaker, and daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, “then we need to be there for them.” Jesus doesn’t call us to judge hurting women. Rather, think of how He must smile when we show them love and help meet their needs.

For You To Pray

Give me a special burden to help meet the needs of hurting women.

Did U Know?  

83% of women who struggle after an abortion say they would have changed their decision if they’d had support from a partner, family member or special person during pregnancy.
