I write for young adults and young girls, especially; because how they are treated and what happens to them concerns me. This world is not exactly tuned into them.

This article is based on the question about Christian women having the most abortions.

The thing that was amazing to me in the responses of this question; is that Christian adults - especially women - seem so naive about the 'normal' lives of other Christians they know. This is the story of my five Christian friends who chose abortion. It IS a far more common choice that young (and not so young) Christian girls make without their parents; and OFTEN for wrong reasons that should be at the bottom of the list.

See results without voting

You don't have to believe me or any statistics, you can discover the reality of things for yourself. I implore you... Cut & Paste the questions below into handouts for your congregation.

This survey is directed toward Christian Congregations. If you belong to a different religion, please adjust this survey to suit your religious beliefs. In fact, this questionnaire is solely for informational purposes within any given congregation – there ARE NO JUDGEMENTS that come with this. As such, feel free to insert, delete or edit questions that your religious community would be the most concerned about.

This is not to create a way to point fingers at anyone. No sane woman - Christian or otherwise - WANTS to have an abortion. They are not murderers. They are your Christian daughters; and many of their hearts break to choose abortion - because they DO 'believe'...

So why do they choose it?

Hopefully this survey will help shed some light on that question and others. We all want fewer abortions to be happening all over the world.These questions are so that everyone can see just how REAL life really is for individuals within any given religious community.

God is love seems to be the big loser here. If you were an alien, observing humanity, you might think just the opposite were true.

God seems to be hell fire and judgement...not much love AT ALL.
