Remembering the Unborn
Pub. Date: Jan. 01, 2005
Hope and Healing for the Suffering and Tears of Past Abortions
In 1993 Chattanooga, Tennessee became the only mid-sized city in America to close the doors of its neighborhood abortion clinic. Three years later the National Memorial for the Unborn was begun to offer peace to post-abortive parents, to remember their babies who have been lost to abortion, and to offer the hope of salvation.
Many women have kept their abortion a secret-not telling their parents or even their own husbands. Their good intentions to solve a crisis pregnancy have left them with deep wounds and unresolved emptiness in their heart. The National Memorial has stepped in to bring hope and healing for these multitudes of hurting people.
Within the National Memorial are plaques that have been erected by hurting parents to remember and memorialize a lost life-a young daughter or son given up through abortion. Behind each plaque is a story that needs to be told. Through God's tender mercy, these stories are shared in this book for the first time.
The books concludes with several stories of adoption, to show that this life-giving choice is happening all over the world.
Healing is possible through claiming one's child, naming one's child and honoring one's child.
Empty Arms is intended to share the painful reality of post-abortion and its affects on families.
* Read real-life stories from people who have faced the serious consequences of their "choice"
* Learn the ramifications of abortions-infertility, drug abuse, divorce, heartache.
* Come face to face with the reality that an abortion does not fix a problem pregnancy, even though one out of four women have an abortion.
* Find hope and healing-even in the midst of despair.
