Forgiveness for Abortion

In response to last week's edition of Weekend
Encounter one reader wrote, "What I am concerned about
is that those who read your article who have had an
abortion might be put into a deeper depression because
of what that article said. I agree with it, but you
didn't mention that there is forgiveness of this sin.
I know the point you were making and I agree, but I am
concerned that some might read it and not know that
they can be forgiven of such a sin as this. I know
women that have had abortions who live in a great
depression over their sin. I just want them to know
that they can seek forgiveness."

Dear W.E. reader, Yes, of course, a woman who has had
an abortion is forgiven by God if she confesses her
sin and asks God for forgiveness just as he forgives
any and all other sins which have been confessed. The
important thing is that she then learns to forgive
herself, which people who have perfectionistic
tendencies find very difficult to do. If this is so,
their problem has more to do with this tendency rather
than finding forgiveness.

God's Word says, "If we confess our sins, he is
faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and
purify us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
