Counseling Tips from one who is on the frontlines at abortion clinics:

In talking to a pregnant mom who seems to be receptive to the Christian faith, I have been asking them the following questions...
1. Do you believe God created the whole world, including you?
2. Do you believe God sent His only Son who was born from a virgin, to die on the cross for your sins?
3. Do you believe that Jesus was dead three days and then God raised Him back to life?
4. Do you believe God created the baby in your womb?
So...you have enough "faith" to believe all this, but you don't think God can handle the situation you are in right now?
I usually get positive results with this!

(Follow up with constructive suggestions of where they can get help.)
