I am frequently contacted by people who have friends and family working in the abortion industry. They are so distraught…wondering how they can reach these people that they love. What will they say? What if it doesn’t go well? What then?
Several weeks ago, I began a conversation with a mom through Facebook. She told me that her daughter is an abortion doctor. When I saw her last name, I immediately knew who her daughter was: Cheryl Chastine. Cheryl is a beautiful, articulate young woman who unfortunately takes innocent human life in her medial practice. People first heard her name several years back when she took over the practice of infamous late term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller.
Cheryl’s mother explained to me how heartbroken she and her husband are over their daughter’s work. Not only that, but Cheryl has cut off all contact with her parents. They decided that they wanted to write a letter to their daughter, in hopes that it would maybe open up the lines of communication. That got me thinking…
What if we started a campaign where people could write letters to their loved ones in the industry? What if abortion workers could see how their work deeply affects the people in their lives? So that’s exactly what we have done.
Our new campaign is called “Love Letters.”
We want to give you an opportunity to reach out to the people you love who work in this industry. You can put your name on it if you want to, or you can leave it anonymous. You can also choose to put your loved one’s name on the letter. How you write your letter is completely up to you.
You can go and write your letter by clicking on this link. http://abortionworker.com/loveletters/
Below is the letter that Cheryl’s mother wrote to her. Please pray for a radical conversion in the life of this abortion doctor, and for healing in their family.
To Cheryl, my daughter
“I have so much to say to you, my precious child. I’ve loved you since before you were born. You were the culmination of my dreams and hearts desire for 8 years before your birth. We were so proud and joyous waiting for you to be born. I had such great dreams of you being a doctor to help heal people, deliver babies, and treat the many ailments of mankind.
Your dad and I sacrificed so much for you to become a doctor. We were so proud when you graduated from medical school and finished your residency in Chicago.
Then our hearts were broken and our spirits were slashed by your choice to perform abortions. We cry everyday, I don’t think we will ever feel a greater pain than on that day we learned of your decision to be an abortionist. Your dad and I are broken people because of your decision. Your desire to do exactly what you want has had deep ramifications on all of us who love you so much. You family has been so deeply hurt. It kills babies, the most vulnerable of all life, and hurts these mothers who have chosen to have the abortion…her life will be forever impacted by her decision.
You may ask how we, as parents, survive knowing the child we’ve borne is an abortionist? Every morning, with sadness and tears, I am greeted with this reality. Yet I am comforted by my Savior who suffered much for me. I am comforted by prayers of friends with whom I’ve shared my agony. Many scriptures give me strength: God is sovereign over all and that includes my woes… We walk by faith and not by sight… Sight will always defeat me but faith is strong in the Lord’s word… To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.. I’ve not put my faith in something that is not able to deliver me from my circumstance… When, I am broken, He heals me and calls me His own and I am made whole… My grace is sufficient for thee, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Our sweet daughter, we still love you even if though there is this searing pain in our hearts. We pray constantly for your eyes to be opened so the light of truth may flood your soul. We know that God is the only One who can reach you. Please stop performing these abortions, and return to us, your mom and dad, who ache to see you and hold you close again. You don’t need to explain or apologize to us. Just stop and you will be received with open hearts and open arms waiting to hold you. We will never hold this against you.
Anyone considering being part of the abortion industry, I know you have good intentions, but good intentions can be used by Satan to do evil. The results of your deeds are death and destruction of family relationships. Many are impacted by your choice, their pain is deep.
I so wish this nightmare would end.”
Until there are none,
