A Good Man

We often complain on this blog about the men who send, bring, drag, cajole, bully and beg their girlfriends into aborting.

So just for once I thought I would pay a few dues to the good men we see, not often enough, but occasionally.

So here's to Damian who "colluded" with me regularly to encourage his girlfriend to trust us and seek the help she needed, even after she had rebooked her abortion for the third time. They now have a beautiful 5 year old son.

And here's to Jim who tried every means to stop his wife of 2 years, who had been desperate to have a baby, from aborting their baby - within a week of finding out she was pregnant, because she went into a sudden unexpected depression. He offered her his total unconditional love and support - not the fake variety that would have walked her round the abortuary. We don't know the outcome.

But my all-time favourite is the gentle Australian builder, Joe, who went out to have a smoke after seeing what an abortion involved. "come back" said his girlfriend, "I know we disagree on abortion, but we have to discuss everything. I want you to understand why I feel abortion is right."

"Discuss?" he replied "Did you just watch that? If you don't see that that is wrong there is nothing to discuss." And he simply wept for her, and for her moral view of the world and for their baby." We continue to pray for Joe, his girlfriend and their baby.
