Abortion and Urban Ministry

The World Magazine blog had an interesting post about abortion and urban ministry this week at http://online.worldmag.com/2008/09/24/abortion-rate-at-30-year-low/. The post emphasizes the need to reach "da hood" and "the trailer park" in efforts to reduce the abortion rate. (Just a side comment: Having grown up in a trailer park, I did not even realize at the time that people might look down on me for where I lived.)

At the Contact Church, Mary Lasarsky leads a great ministry for pregnant girls and young women as a part of the urban ministry. More information can be found at www.contactchurch.net/contact_life. She has been making a difference for years now.

I think this is where we need to see a vast amount of information going out. People need to be talked to and shown the facts.

You're right, Mike. Some misinformation has confused the situation. Truth can change many minds and hearts.
