Dear Precious Women and Mothers,

I am writing this letter to you at God’s request to tell you three important things:

1. Your baby is alive in Heaven and with the Lord. When a baby dies, he or she goes to Heaven.

___Jesus said this in Matthew 18: 3: “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.” This implies that little children are in the Kingdom of Heaven.

___Jesus also said this in Matthew 19: 14: “Let the children come to Me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like little children.”

From these verses, you can see that your baby is alive and in Heaven with the Lord.

2. God loves you and wants to heal you.

___The Bible says this in John 3: 16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

___In Exodus 15: 26, God says this: “I am the LORD Who heals you.”

3. While what you did was sin, God is greater than your sin, and He wants to forgive you.

___In Romans 3: 23 NLT, the Bible says this: “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”

___Romans 6: 23 says this: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

___And 1 John 1: 9 GWT says this: “God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, He forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.” 

I urge you to get right with God and to ask Him to forgive you and to let Him heal you. The only way to get right with God is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior, the One Who paid for your sin by dying on the Cross and rising from the dead. Accept Him now. If you need help to do so, go here:

And now . . .

To the Dear Precious Men and Fathers who were forced to remain silent . . . 

I am writing this letter to you at God’s request to tell you three important things:

1, God knows your pain, your anger—rage, even–and your frustration.

___Here is God’s promise to you from Psalm 34: 18 NLT: “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” 

___In Psalm 147: 3 CSB, the Bible says this: “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.”

___In Revelation 21: 4 NLT, the Bible says this: “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”


2. God is asking you to forgive the woman who had an abortion against your wishes. Yes, forgive her. Only if you forgive her will you be set free from your pain.

___Listen to what God says about forgiveness in Matthew 6: 15 NLT: “But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sin.” That’s a pretty sobering thought. Remember this: Forgiveness is not a feeling; it’s a decision.

___When we pray the LORD’s Prayer, we ask God to forgive us in the same way that we forgive others (Matthew 6: 12). That means if we don’t forgive others, God won’t forgive us.

3. If you do not have a relationship with God, start one now. Jesus said in John 3: 3 that unless a person is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. Do you want to see the Kingdom of God? Do you want to see your baby in the Kingdom of God? Then get born again. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.

Ask Him to come into your life, to cleanse you of your sin, and to heal your broken heart. If you need help to do this, go to

Dear hurting mothers and fathers, I will be praying for all of you. Nothing is impossible with God. Trust Him. You will be amazed at what He will do for you. You will be amazed at how He will heal. You will be amazed at how deeply He loves you!
