Safe Haven is a support site, and because of that, this is not a place to debate the moral, legal, religious or ethical aspects of abortion. This site is not a forum for debate. SafeHaven is a place to learn about Post-Abortion Syndrome, what it is, how and where to find healing from it. This site does not exist to inflict guilt on anyone. We do not tell anyone how they “should” feel. Instead we are here to accept you, to listen to you, to support you and to tell you what has helped us.
Why We're Pro-Life
Why we don't believe in protesting abortion clinics
- Because God is the Creator of life: "The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life." Job 33:3
- Because we are His workmanship. Because He loves us even in the womb: "For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I Praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16
- Because He knew us even before we were formed in the womb: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." Jeremiah 1:5
- Because even before we're born we are important to Him: "...Before I was born the Lord called me..." Isaiah 49:1b
We believe that in order to best serve the cause of life, we, as Christians, must love those in crisis pregnancies as Christ loved similar people in His lifetime. He is our example. Christ did not protest or picket. He met people where they were--often one on one. He revealed their need for a Savior, then loved them as no one had before. His way was to meet them in the midst of their crisis with truth, compassion, genuine concern.
It is our desire, at SafeHaven, to let the mothers and fathers know that we don't just want to save their babies--we want to help them too. We care as much for the parents as for the children, not wanting either to be sacrificed for the other.
It is our opinion that by protesting, we (Christians) have drawn a very clear line in the sand--creating a chasm, if you will-- which makes it uncomfortable and undesirable for those with unwanted pregnancies to cross. Instead of opening our arms to give them hope we have pushed them away--even into the very arms of those who seek to profit financially from aborting their babies.
Additionally, we have given the mainstream media powerful material to use against us, enlarging the chasm between us and those we wish to help.
We respect those who follow their convictions by protesting in a peaceful manner as we believe they sincerely feel their actions are pleasing to God. While we do not agree with their tactics we respect their dedication and determination for the sake of the babies.
