In part two of this informative discussion, Dr. Lile and Dr. Clinton discuss the life-long effects that abortion will have on a woman, equating it in compassionate terms to a miscarriage. They shed light on the damage, pain and psychological scars that this single decision can have on the unassuming person who is seeking to rid herself of a “problem.” Often times postpartum depression, shame, guilt, and in some cases, even suicide, can accompany this traumatic event in a woman’s life. But there is hope. Drs. Lile and Clinton discuss God’s healing grace and the promise of forgiveness that can cover even the most egregious sin. They close this interview by reminding listeners they are not alone. There are resources and understanding people ready to help a frightened girl or woman who is struggling with an unplanned pregnancy. The program concludes with a sorrowful acknowledgement of the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and a thank you to Dr. Dobson for staying in the fight and leading the stand for righteousness since the Supreme Court rendered its wicked decision to legalize abortion.

Family Talk’s regular contributor, Dr.William Lile, the “Pro-life Doc,” sits down with Dr. Clinton to discuss the increasing threats facing the pro-life movement, due to a new administration entering the White House. Dr. Lile describes the dangerous new trend of increasing prescription “abortion pills.” He elaborates that it’s not just “the morning after” pill, but rather abortion on-demand, and it can be used up to 10 weeks into a pregnancy. This horrible drug, which is sold in a simple capsule, could soon become a mail-order prescription, easily accessed without any true medical supervision and becoming widespread across the country.  Dr. Clinton draws on his expertise to explain the psychological effects that abortion has on the mother and father who choose to abort their baby. This conversation is for mature listeners, but is vital content for all people of faith. Dr. Lile and Dr. Clinton close part 1 of their discussion by revealing the worst culprit to this tragedy—Planned Parenthood, and explain what listeners can do to express their outrage to their representatives at the state and federal levels.
