Forgiveness Is God's Message

My colleague Janet Morana, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and author of "Recall Abortion," recently responded to an article entitled “Contraception Saves Lives” published in Christianity Today.

Janet’s blog and this article remind me of conversations I’ve had over the years with members of my family and other Christians. Out of concern for our fellow brothers and sisters, we struggle with words like compassion and tolerance.

Before my aunt-by-marriage, Coretta Scott King, the wife of my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. died, we had a series of conversations about “misplaced compassion.” By this I mean that Aunt Coretta was very concerned that I hated certain people groups; like members of the abortion community, members of the gender debates community, and members of the what’s the best education for families.

At first, Coretta thought that I had become hateful and judgmental. When I reminded her that I am just as human as anybody, and have made choices in my life that others didn’t agree with or understand (including abortions and moral laxity); and that when those choices were against the word of God, I couldn’t hide behind the truth that I had needed to pray and accept God’s truth and forgiveness for my own life; after we had our “come to Jesus” moments together, we got up from our respective positions and agreed that “people need the Lord.”

Having said this, in reading the Christianity Today piece, I remember asking God: What happened to Margaret Sanger? Who hurt her and confused her?” This article gives a bird’s eye view into the young nurse, Margaret Sanger, who was overwhelmed with the woman’s plight of pain and threat of death in childbirth.

The soon to be Dr. Sanger chose the wrong path in her attempts to serve women. She chose what would become millions of deaths by chemical, oral, and surgical contraceptives and abortions, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of women by strokes, heart attacks, breast and cervical cancer, depression, and countless other ills.

She chose what would one day lead to the deaths of over 55 million babies by the 21st Century. This is the story of that path.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father’s church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
