With due high respect I've got a deep problem in my family, I hope you are able to help us. My wife and me have a unwanted embryo. She had a pregnancy test and unfortunately it was positive. Our embryo is 3 weeks old. In my country, Iran, "pregnancy abortion" is illegal and even if it is possible it will be very expensive. We are not ready for have a baby and both of us hate this. What should we do? We are looking for medicine and easy way for clear it. We are impatiently waiting for your efficent way to save us and improve our life with your guidance.
I'm not sure how you found us, but we are against abortion because it is the murder of an innocent human being. I know it is distressing to find yourself pregnant before you are ready, but you and your wife do not have an unwanted embryo, you are growing a BABY who is in an early stage of development.
I don't know if it will make any difference to you, but I want you to know I regularly talk to women who had abortions, and it traumatized them. The guilt and shame they carry is a huge burden. They can't get away from the fact that they murdered their own babies. Please reconsider your position.
There is no easy way to "clear" an unwanted pregnancy because it is a serious matter to take the life of another human being. This baby could not have been conceived without God's permission and blessing; He means for you to have him or her, love him or her, and trust Him to help you care for this precious life.
I pray God will give you a peace that will enable you to trust Him to get you through this time without doing something you will regret for the rest of your lives and for which you will have to answer to Him.
