Few topics carry as much weight as ones about life itself. In this refreshingly practical conversation, we ask the hard questions to three friends with unique perspectives on life beyond the abortion decision.Over the years, we’ve heard so many people say “I would have done it differently” – if only they had known there was another way. You’ll gain insight from Sherrie’s experience as pregnancy clinic director, Norm’s journey toward healing, and Katie’s passion for adoption. As a faith community, we’re learning how to move beyond our convictions & opinions and step into action. Whatever role you find yourself in on this journey, be encouraged – you’re not alone.If you’re wrestling with the decision to have an abortion, don’t hesitate to reach out to our friends at the Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic, or find a pregnancy clinic near you at care-net.org.Featured Resources: Unprotected, By Miriam Grossman, M.D.Strength in Weakness by Andrew ComiskeyWhatcom County Pregnancy Clinic (Bellingham, WA) – whatcomclinic.com/LoveLife – lovelife.orgLight of the World Prayer Center  (Bellingham, WA) – lowpc.org— We'd love to hear from you!
