Pro-life supporters should not just protest. There is need
for Advice centres to counsel all women contemplating abortion if they request
it. This should also include those who have had abortions, because many of
these have not been able to come to terms with themselves either through guilt
Christian counselling can assure such of God's love for
them, the offer of forgiveness and the chance of a fresh start. All advice
should be given in a sensitive and compassionate way realising the emotional
turmoil they may be going through.
The pro-life lobby should not be silent. They should clearly
show their members of Parliament their concern, and use the Press and other
media to press the argument. Church-goers should seek to enlist their ministers
to support them. Women should be made aware of all the options open to them
when considering abortion. To borrow the Prime minister's slogan (when getting
active in pro-life work) it's "education, education, education".
