In 1984 I  traveled to Memphis and watched Jimmy Connors win the United States National Indoor tennis championships. I had been a big tennis fan for years. In 1971 I remember watching a 16 year old Chris Evert lose to Billie Jean King 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals of the US Open. Both Connors and Evert won Wimbledon in 1974 while they were they engaged to be married. Sadly their wedding day would never come because of a selfish decision by Chris Evert. I have written before about those who has got an abortion for selfish reasons and when I read this story below about Chris Evert it broke my heart all over again.

What abortion does in relationships

Published by at 8:41 am

Studies have shown that relationship demise can be the result of abortion. The story of why famous tennis players Chris Evert and Jimmy Connor split up in the 70s when they were supposed to get married highlights this. She got pregnant and unilaterally decided abortion was the answer, telling him to “make the arrangements.” He, on the other hand, was happy to accept responsibility for what happened.

Connors claims that Evert’s decision helped to end their relationship. “It was a horrible feeling, but I knew it was over,” he writes. “Getting married wasn’t going to be good for either of us.”

I can’t imagine how getting married would work after that. It’s a pretty fundamental disagreement, and not exactly the basis for a strong relationship going forward.

On the flip side, of course I have read about men entirely and totally rejecting women who choose to have the baby. I do believe this has increased since “the choice” became so pervasive, legal and accessible. Why should the woman be the only one to be able to make the decision? Pretty much the man’s only power in an unplanned pregnancy lies in walking away.

    This was such a disappointing story to read. I remember that the Evert family are devoutly Catholic and Chris attended Catholic school. I had expected she would be pro-life, then read a quote in the 1990s indicating that she was pro-choice. Now this. I wonder what her three living children think. It would be nice if Chris would join Silent No More.

Q: There was also some controversy with him (John Feinstein) regarding your being pro-choice.

A: He said he heard I was pro-choice on the abortion issue. I said, “So?” And he said, “Well, you never said it.” Well, no one had asked me how I felt about a lot of things. The public doesn’t really know who I am anyway.

Great  quotes from “Whatever happened to the human race?”  by Francis Schaeffer and Dr. C. Everett Koop (from the shelter website):.

Summary


Francis Schaeffer and, former Surgeon General, C. Everette Koop deal directly with the devaluing of human life and its results in our society. It did not take place in a vacuum. It is a direct result of a worldview that has rejected the doctrine of man being created in the image of God. Man as a product of the impersonal, plus time and chance has no sufficient basis for worth.

In our time, humanism has replaced Christianity as the consensus of the west. This has had many results, not the least of which is to change people’s view of themselves and their attitudes toward other human beings. Here is how the change came about. Having rejected God, humanistic scientists, philosophers and professors began to teach that only what can be mathematically measured is real and that all reality is like a machine. Man is only one part of the larger cosmic machine. Man is more complicated than the machines people make, but is still a machine, nevertheless.
(Francis A. Schaeffer and C. Everette Koop, Whatever Happened to the Human Race?, Ch. 1)

We are all sinners and there is forgiveness. Jesus said to a judgmental bystander concerning a  promiscuous woman that wept at Christ’s feet, kissed them, and wiped them with her hair,  in Luke 7:47  “Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” We can all have that forgiveness today. Here is a great article from Randy Alcorn on the forgiveness of Christ that I hope everyone will take time to read. Also there is a great pro-life organization called   SILENT NO MORE that a great place to go involved if you need to recover from an abortion experience and help get over the guilt through finding forgiveness. Here is a story from a person involved in that ministry now:

Matt Clinger
Matt ClingerMatt Clinger was born in Columbus, Ohio and grew up loving sports.  With this passion, however, came arrogance and a sense of entitlement that led him down a road of destruction.  After moving to Orlando in 1999 to pursue a career in the pop music industry, he met a girl named Kelly. After quickly becoming involved with her, Matt found himself in a life of selfishness and bad decisions. Kelly had 2 abortions and Matt’s pride and arrogance turned into addictions to alcohol and pornography. Ultimately, Matt was doing anything he thought would take him away from the pain and shame he was feeling.  In 2004, Matt met Jesus and the journey of his marriage to Kelly is one that would be almost unbelievable to most.  With two abortions, pornography addictions, alcohol abuse and two affairs, the fact that Matt is still married to Kelly is only attributed to their relationship with Jesus and their willingness to do whatever it took to make it work. Today, Matt and Kelly have two children, Evin (15) and Logan (9) and have been married for 10 years.Matt now works as a PGA Teaching Professional in Georgia, as well as traveling along side Kelly (a spokesperson for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign) to speak on behalf of the men who have lost fatherhood through an abortion.
