Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), has built a new studio at her office in Washington, D.C., for the CURE America News Network.
She recorded an impromptu interview with BCN contributor Rev. Walter Hoye, founder and president of the pro-life group, Issues4Life Foundation, and Rev. Brian Walker of Everlasting Light Ministries. Zina Hackworth of This Race Will Self-Destruct made a cameo appearance.
Star talked about abortion’s impact on the black community, and Rev. Walker shared a personal experience. He sacrificed his child on “the altar of fear, doubt, and inconvenience” years ago when he and his wife — his girlfriend at the time — decided to abort their unborn child. He said he reneged on his “God-given role” to protect his wife and children. Rev. Walker and his wife healed and reconciled themselves to their child, each other, and to God.
Abortion causes physical and spiritual damage. Rev. Hoye’s goal is to help black pastors bring health and recovery to their personal lives and their congregants’ lives. He recently hosted the “Allensworth Conference” of black pastors and their wives. Among the speakers were black former abortionists and the country’s leading black OB/GYN.
“We’re setting the captives free,” Rev. Hoye told Star. “[Abortion] is no longer a secret that you can never talk about. You’re open, you’re honest, and you can be freer with your congregation. We’re helping pastors do for their congregations what they want to do. They’re shepherds. They want to meet the needs of their congregation.”
We need to provide people with a safe place to be healed from abortion and meet Christ, Rev. Hoye added.
As these three pro-lifers know, there is hope, healing, and forgiveness after abortion.
