I’d like to begin by reminding you about our pro-life event this weekend, September 26. See Life 2020 will be streamed at 6:00 p.m. MT on Focus’ Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram channels, as well as at focusonthefamily.com/see-life/. This program will feature powerful pro-life stories, compelling commentary from dynamic Christian leaders, soul-stirring music from award-winning artists, and will culminate with a 4D ultrasound of a baby – offering a window into the reality of life in the womb. Join us!
Speaking of powerful pro-life messages, we’ve got one for you on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “A Former Abortionist’s Journey to Becoming Pro-Life.” Our guests are Dr. Anthony and Cecelia Levatino.
He was an abortion doctor who performed hundreds, if not thousands, of abortions without a second thought that he was ending a human life. He and his wife Cecelia share how God worked through a surprise adoption and a horrible tragedy to bring them into a pro-life perspective. I’m grateful for their courage in sharing their story.
In the middle of performing an abortion, the scales dropped from his eyes, and he saw the procedure for what it was. He didn’t see the right to choose. He didn’t see himself as a humanitarian helping a woman in need. He didn’t even see the $800 in cash he made in 15 minutes.
He saw body parts.
He saw a son. A daughter. A baby.
That moment opened his eyes to the value of life. Hear Dr. Anthony Levatino’s powerful journey of redemption, as he went from a pro-choice abortionist to a pro-life Christian.
This program probably isn’t suitable for younger children, so please use your discretion and occupy your kids elsewhere, or listen later on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or on our free phone app.
If the topic of abortion is a tender one for you, I want you to know that Focus on the Family has a caring Christian team of counselors, and it would be their privilege to offer you a free consultation. Call us, leave your name and number, and they’ll get back with you just as soon as possible. The number during business hours is 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
One of the best things you can do to support life is to participate in our Option Ultrasound program. Become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. What’s amazing is that it only takes $60 to save a baby’s life by providing ultrasound machines and additional resources. Visit our website for more information.
Have you considered opening your heart to a child who needs a family? There are thousands of children in foster care in the United States who don’t have a mom and dad because the courts have deemed the parents unfit and have terminated their parental rights. Even if you don’t feel led to adopt a child yourself, you can engage in other ways. If you’re wondering where to start or need more information, visit our website Wait No More. We’ll help you discover what you can do to step into the life of a foster child in the name of Christ.
