What does a failed abortion look like?
- A beautiful child, chosen by God
- A miracle
- A survivor
Most discussion surrounding abortion centers on the unborn lives that are taken, the emotional, physical, and spiritual damage the mother experiences, and the destructive toll legalized abortion has on society as a whole.
But there’s another, often overlooked, group affected by abortion—the survivors.
These are the children that came out of their appointment with death ALIVE.
Some carry the physical scars of the procedure that was to end their life, others may not even be aware of their past until the invisible scars from their birth come to light. But they all carry wounds that only God can heal.
That was the case for Robin Sertell.
Robin spent much of her childhood in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Teams of medical professionals struggled to find answers for her multitude of issues which ranged from Grand mal seizures, complete hair loss, allergies, and all manner of digestive and urinary tract issues.
In addition to her chronic health problems, Robin struggled with rejection and often wondered if there was truly a place for her in this world.
Then, when Robin was nine years old, her maternal grandmother told her she had survived three abortion attempts, shedding light on the trauma behind her physical and emotional struggle.
Like most abortion survivors, Robin thought she was the only one! This left her feeling lost, rejected, and alone for many years.
It was only after a radical encounter where the Lord miraculously intervened to save her legs from amputation and heal her heart that she came to know that she is truly accepted…in the Beloved.
Robin’s story is not unique. She is one of nearly 20,000 babies who survived their mother’s attempt to kill them.
Most, like Robin, carry their past alone, bearing the trauma, shame, and questions in silence. But now, there is a place for survivors to encounter hope, healing, and empowerment through “The Abortion Survivors Network.” This network is the only advocacy and support group for abortion survivors and their families worldwide.
As the Education Coordinator for the Abortion Survivors Network, Robin is passionate about serving abortion survivors and their families. She is an ordained pastor, author, and speaker who shares her story to help others see God’s awesome power turn what the enemy meant for harm into good that saves many lives.
During this webinar, you will:
- Gain awareness about the incidence and experiences of failed abortions and abortion survivors
- Understand the trauma and long-term effects of abortion on survivors and their families
- Discover how the voice of the voiceless is being raised to humanize the unborn, advocate for life, and change the culture surrounding abortion
- Hear Robin’s amazing testimony of God’s healing, hope, and redemption
If you desire a greater passion to advocate for the unborn and see a culture of life restored, then you won’t want to miss this powerful session!
It was very powerful to hear the personal testimony of Robin Sertell. God’s overwhelming grace and healing for any situation is so evident as she shared the details of the 3 abortion attempts to end her life. As people shared in the breakout rooms it was clear that the impact of an abortion goes far beyond the pregnant woman and preborn child. It was quite rewarding to hear that some attendees expressed they will reach out to Robin and the Abortion Survivor Network for biblical healing counsel. This organization is vital especially as pro-abortion agencies promote and attempt to increase use of chemical abortions. God’s love will prevail!
Robin did such an amazing job sharing her abortion survivor testimony and educating us about failed abortions and abortion survivors. I learned so much! What a blessing that Robin taught about the power of forgiveness, AND she prayed an anointed prayer over people too. The small breakout rooms allowed the webinar participants to share with each other what stood out to them, what action step they are going to take, and even how they or someone they knew had been affected by having an abortion or being an abortion survivor. The feedback comments from the small groups facilitators was powerful. Praising God for the healing that has (and will continue to) taken place in people’s lives and for the connections people are going to make as they contact Robin and the Abortion Survivors Network. ❤️
