A Word from the Director......

Dear Friend of Cross Road,

“Is honesty overrated?” This question was posed recently to President Obama by a sympathetic reporter who wondered about the discrepancies between statements by various presidential candidates and the facts. To his credit, the president defended the importance of honesty in gaining the trust of the American people.

Truth-telling however seems to be a custom more honored in the breach than in the observance by politicians. This is less their fault then our own. We prefer to hear pleasant promises rather than hard facts and choose our leaders accordingly. Raised in such a fairy tale atmosphere, our children inherit our illusions and have come to expect life to have a happy ending less by effort than by default.

When a young woman first comes to our center for a pregnancy test, she senses that her own dream world is in jeopardy. If the test is negative, she is often eager to return to her carefree lifestyle as if this brush with reality had not occurred. In such situations, our goal is to help her take a more sober view about the dangers involved in sexual relations outside of marriage. If the test is positive, the experience is much more challenging as the young woman is shaken by the prospect of taking on real adult responsibilities. Surprisingly, many young women would be willing to accept these challenges if they had the support of their parents. 

As one would expect, this news is usually not welcome by the parents who are rightly concerned about their daughter’s future. Unfortunately, often one of them, usually mom, recommends abortion as if this procedure would return their child to the land of innocence. Instead, parents who pressure their daughter to terminate a pregnancy condemn her to a Neverland where she will never grow up without going through tremendous psychological pain and intense resentment.  

This is where parents need to honestly face the truth about the life of their unborn grandchild and help their little girl grow up. In such cases, making an adoption plan, which takes great courage, may prove to be the best way for their daughter to become a mature, responsible young woman.

In our society, honesty is not overrated though it is undermined by euphemistic expressions that gloss over ugly truths. The real victims here are our children and grandchildren: the future generations we are willing to burden and abort to maintain our own comfortable illusions about life. At Cross Road, we encourage families to honestly assess their plans in light of the horrific truth about abortion and the inestimable value of human life. If they can make their way through the maze of distortions then no one will be more proud when the child is born than grandma and grandpa. That’s the honest truth!

Thank you for your continued support of our work.
