A young girl gets pregnant. She is not married. She has no safety net. She suddenly fears the future. She feels the burden. The stigma. She wants to end the pregnancy. She does not have access to an abortionist. She takes matters into her own hands. She finds a crude instrument. She ruptures and bleeds and dies. A doctor witnesses the horror. She tries to save the young girl. She feels the weight of the travesty. She wants to do something. She fights for the pro-choice movement. She becomes an abortionist. She performs thousands of abortions. She feels she is on the right side of history. She comes on a podcast and defends her profession. She tells her story. Her message goes out to thousands. It spreads. And reinforces. And influences. Unto untold ends.
Sin compounds. That is part of its cancerous nature. And this is displayed with terrible potency in the July 15th episode of Unbelievable. It is entitled, “An ex-abortionist and pro-choice doctor debate.”
You should listen, if for no other reason than to be reminded not only of the blight of abortion, but the compounding nature of sin.
