Key Scripture:

James 5:16 (NLT)

16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

Galatians 6:2 (NLT)

2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:3–4 (NLT)

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

Proverbs 24:11–12 (NLT)

11 Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die;

      save them as they stagger to their death.

    12 Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.”

      For God understands all hearts, and he sees you.

    He who guards your soul knows you knew.

      He will repay all people as their actions deserve.

Start sharing. These questions are to help get your group thinking and to create openness.

  • How do personal stories, like the one shared by Victoria, impact the pro-life conversation? Discuss the power of personal testimony in changing hearts and minds about abortion. (Ref James 5:16)
  • Why is it important to include men’s experiences in the conversation about abortion, and what unique perspectives can men offer? (Ref Galatians 6:2)
  • Robinson’s organization, Reassemble Life, offers support for both women and men dealing with post-abortion trauma. What does this tell us about the widespread impact of abortion on individuals and society? How can the church play a role in healing and support? (Ref 2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
  • How can we better support and encourage women facing unplanned pregnancies to choose life? Discuss practical steps and resources that could be offered.
  • Victoria discussed the importance of addressing the emotional and psychological effects of abortion. What kind of support systems can we, as a church or small community provide to individuals who are struggling with the aftermath of abortion?
  • Given the divisive nature of the abortion debate, how can we engage in compassionate and respectful dialogue with those who hold differing views?

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

  • Pray, and discuss with your group if necessary, about what your next step is…do you need to educate yourself more about this important issue by reading a book or watching a documentary? Do you need to support or participate in a pro-life organization? Take that step.

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

  • Ask God for His forgiveness and mercy over the continued sin of abortion in our community and nation. Seek His wisdom so that we can engage with culture with proper measures of truth and grace, speaking life affirming messages to all those who are in need. And ask Him to soften their hearts and give them eyes to see and ears to hear these messages.

Start digging. For further study.
