We are called to love our children and to let them see that we will love them even if they sin and conceive a child out of wedlock.
The number of abortions that happen because a either one of the parents grew up hearing
“I always told you that Johnny so and so or Sally thus and such would end up like this.”
“I cannot BELIEVE that such a fine young Catholic man/woman would do such a thing!!!”
“If you ever knock a girl up/come home pregnant I would simply die of embarrassment” or " Don’t you ever think I am going to raise a baby you make".
“Don’t they know what causes that, I mean, it is IRRESPONSIBLE to have that many kids if you cannot afford them/when they are so young/before they graduate collge!”
Growing up with those messages, the pressure to abort is overwhelming.
What about when you hear that someone is pregnant, let your kids grow up hearing you speak of the gift of a child regardless of how he was conceived. Let your kid hear “I heard that Sally is pregnant. Let’s say an extra rosary for her today, this is not going to be easy for her.”
