Abortion issue is quiet serious in NY with the state legalizing abortion. And this prolife rally is very historic with 20000 people participating in the event. I am especially glad that a Christian foundation took the lead to organize the event. Great to have Christians shouting the name of Jesus at the times square, isn’t?
“My story is I was raised Catholic but I walked away from the church and I got married and I had a wonderful first son. But my second son, his head was small and he was challenged physically,” Pendergraft said. “He could not walk or talk.”
So when she got pregnant a third time, Pendergraft became scared and started down a path she would later regret.
“I was worried about having another son like [that]. So I had an abortion. For a long time I did not think about it. My husband and I got separated and I started seeing a man and in the process I got pregnant again. And the second time I had an abortion,” she said.
Pendergraft eventually found salvation in a Baptist church and stayed quiet about her abortions for a long time until Jesus told her this year to begin sharing her story.
“This year the Lord has laid it on my heart that I need to go tell people about this. I need to tell them the son that I had who is challenged is 47 years old. He goes to an activity center. He still can’t walk or talk. He’s incontinent but he is the light of my life,” she said.
Not everyone is pure and sinless. But repentance is what matters! Great testimony by Mary
