She Gets It

Today I had the pleasure of working with a client who had a ready and refreshing answer to the question of what she planned to do with her pregnancy. When I asked she what she wanted to do, she said: Well, I'm pregnant, so I guess I'm going to have a baby. Just that simple. Pregnancy=baby, that's how nature works.

Choices are what make us free and they are a blessing. But sometimes there are too many "choices". Sometimes these "choices" don't increase our freedom, instead they open opportunities for us to distort things and make us slaves to our own convenience and desires. Many clients come to us confessing they feel they have no choice about their abortion, that it is the only option. They feel forced by family, friends, and their own situation.

The abortion option doesn't introduce more freedom, it introduces an unnatural way to force a situation to suit the conveniences those involved. When we take it out of the equation and look at the reality of the pregnancy (a baby is going to be born), we have the freedom of choices that will decide how to incorporate this change into our lives and continue to move forward.
