Join us in praising God, we are now living in a post-Roe America!
But even with Roe gone, that DOES NOT mean abortion is.
In the wake of this historic decision, Blue Ridge Women's Center has more work than ever to serve the women and men in our community with life-transformative services. While many other states have taken action to outlaw abortion, Virginia remains one of several states still allowing for legal abortions. With this in mind, there will be women and men in our community seeking help with their unplanned pregnancies, and we want to be the ones who stand in the gap with support.
Esther 4:14 reads, "For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
As we look to scripture for how to act in this cultural movement, we reflect on Esther, and how she rose to the occasion to rescue the Jews from death. We do not want to keep silent at this time while others are crying out for deliverance, and we trust in the faithfulness of God that he will deliver families in bondage to walk in abundant life. We pray he would choose to use us in our standing in our community, just as he used Esther, to help take part in that holy work.
As one of our industry supporters, Care Net, so eloquently said, “The courts can make abortion illegal, but only God through His church can make abortion unthinkable.” Through the outpouring of support already, we are so grateful for our supporters and donors like you who are helping make that mission possible.
The work has just begun. We hope you will join us through your time, talents, and prayers.
