Modern American women most likely to choose abortion, need us to listen, to understand, and to respond to their actual concerns. Science, through research, uncovers the underlying emotional reasons why unintended pregnancy, for her, is perceived as a complete loss of control over her present and future self.
Given this perspective, the choice of abortion becomes self-preservation. Her whole life is at stake. "Choice" offers her the sense that she has control over her future, and allows her to answer the question, "How can I preserve my life as I know it?"
In the consulting room, we must address this felt need in a relational and compassionate manner - openly, honestly, and truthfully, while grappling with her own inner convictions. Join us as we explore using two effective Heartbeat resources to put into practice, framed from the woman's own perspective, a new vision free from negative consequences.
