I was just watching a video online where a woman was talking about her abortion and it seems like she was severely manipulated into the decision which she regreded immediately after going through with it. For those who find themselves manipulated by a loved one into sin, doesn’t that lessen their culpability? As a person who has experienced severe manipulation by a loved one, I think these type of people tend to be codependent and can’t separate their self-worth from the relationship, so turning their partner down in any request can be excruciatingly difficult. What does the church teach about this?
Also, please pray for this woman she has left the church because of her guilt/ shame. My heart breaks for her.
