Jan. 22, 2023, is a special Pro-Life Sunday here in America. There is a voice in the abortion debate that normally is unheard, and that is the voice of the unborn children.
Claire Culwell is an exception. I recommend her book “Survivor” to all on both sides of the issue to read. Her mother (Tonya) was pregnant with her (Claire) at age 13 and forced by her mother (Tonya’s mother) to have an abortion. Claire’s mother, Tonya, unknowingly was pregnant with twins, and Claire survived as her twin was aborted. Her mother’s (Tonya’s) pregnancy continued, and to make the story shorter, Claire was born to a 14-year-old mother who put her up for adoption. As a 21-year-old adult, Claire sought out her birth mother for the “rest of the story.” Her story, “Survivor,” is a fascinating true-life story that she, now the mother of four children, has written down.
Abortion for birth control is bad for all unborn babies. Their fate is made without their choice. There are over 200 abortion survivors, Claire notes in her book, and she mentions two of them.
Her book is available through Answers in Genesis as you seek to grasp her story. We need to encourage adoption, not abortion, in the new year. If anyone would like to borrow my copy of her book, let me know. Thanks for listening.
