Ann Voskamp writes powerfully about abortin and the changes needed in the attitude of the church to make life a more powerful option than death
When I get the message that Sozan wants an abortion, it feels like all the air got vacuumed out of my lungs.
But I get it.
I once sat in a doctor’s office and the atomic blast of my own pregnancy test ripped through me and I’m telling you, it was impossible to breathe through the shockwaves, the thermal heat.
I’ve sat with Sozan in Iraq, in the windowless, no-plumbing shipping container where, she, her husband, her children slept on the floor through the winter. I’d watched her rock her sick baby. I’d watched her eyes howl, heard the raw ache in her as she told me how ISIS began the blood bath genocide of her people.
