Approaching Abortion with Compassion (a discussion with my wife Chelsea)

My wife Chelsea returns to Truthspresso to continue a series discussing abortion.

We discuss what abortion advocates can miss from the pro-life movement: that we understand why people believe they need abortion. No one, including the pro-life movement, can discount the stressful and difficult situations many young people face as abortion is offered as a desperate and quick fix.

Chelsea explains different pro-life ministries from sidewalk counseling at abortion clinics to conversational displays at colleges and high schools to crisis pregnancy centers. She shares two powerful examples of how she persuaded two young women on separate occasions not to abort their baby.

We hope this episode encourages you to embrace strong pro-life convictions while showing the love of Christ.

Chelsea holds a B.S. in Nursing from Regis University, a Masters in Nursing from Pensacola Christian College, and a post-Master's certificate in Certified Nurse Midwifery from the University of Colorado. She has worked as a pediatric nurse, has volunteered over eight years of work at crisis pregnancy centers in Colorado and Florida, and has delivered over 100 babies. Chelsea runs the website www.crmidwifery.com to offer her services. She is opening her own life-affirming clinic this year to serve women in the Denver Metro area.
