Many Christians, who have experienced an abortion, will experience freedom in a fresh way. Experiencing this freedom can be strange to some. Our culture is not ready to give freedom to people who have experienced an abortion. Casual and insensitive words can hurt sometimes, but freedom is yours, and does not belong to those who speak without wisdom. The reason there is heavy condemnation regarding the issue of abortion, is because our society feels responsible for the act that is going on. For most people, the best way to feel like they are not responsible, is by putting the entire burden and blame onto those women who (quote) made the bad choice. But this label does not belong to you anymore. You are free in Christ. For many, you know in your heart that it was not even your choice. The best way to live is by safeguarding your freedom from people who are suffering from their own guilt. People, who have their own guilt, will make others feel guilty. Their own debts are not reconciled. In other words, they did not receive the grace, which was given to us freely. Like Paul said, I urge you as well to exercise your freedom. Do not live like a fugitive anymore. You are free, by the blood of Jesus.
Jesus answered them. Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever, the son does remain forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:34-36)
