Pre- Abortion Counseling at Iganga!

Caring guidance preserves life!

Although Uganda has abortion restrictions, they are performed daily.

[1] 1.2 Million Ugandan woman face unwanted pregnancy each year, in which 26% lead in abortion. Woman living in rural communities are at further risk of having complications during an abortion procedure. Many clinics refer woman to pre- abortion counseling before they agree to perform the procedure.

David Kisaame, of Iganga Crisis Pregnancy Center, fills this need with gladness!

In a recent testimony, David shared how he counseled an unnamed couple, who sought an abortion of their seventh child. Being a pastor, David went to the Bible, and shared how sacred life is to God. Many who come to the pregnancy center, know nothing about God or the Bible. David reads scripture that shows, life begins at conception. The worries that this couple faced, is shared by all the others who came before them. This couple felt that one more mouth to feed, would be far to difficult. David shared many events of hardship from the Bible, and how the Lord gave them all strength to gain victory. Using wisdom like Solomon, David asked the question, ” Having six children, and one in the womb, which brings you more burden to sustain”? They replied “the six”. Jokingly, David said ” Then why not get rid of  the six, and keep the one in your womb”?. Of course, they refused, yet understood what David was implying.. If it is impossible to kill your six children, why kill the one yet to be born.

Ultimately it is the mothers decision, but David aims to be sure they are fully aware of what is to come. Many times, when someone knows there is an another answer, they feel more at peace keeping their child.

This story ended well! after counseling, the couple decided to keep their child. Months passed, and a man entered David’s office to share the news of how grateful he was to receive harsh reality.. in essence, he had asked his wife to have an abortion, since they had six daughters to care for. In tears he related how his wife had just given birth to their only son!.  Good decisions end well, and together they prayed for the existence of the counseling center, and Gods gift of a baby boy.

Iganga reaches out to those seeking an abortion, and provides aid to those who struggle after giving birth to a child. Parenting education, and childcare often lead a family to finding sustainable income. Since finances are the leading cause of abortion, this is a wonderful resource. David invites all those with a heart for life, to join him. If you are considering a mission to Uganda, please contact me.

Uganda Iganga Saving Lives!

If you believe in preserving the life of the unborn, please consider supporting this pro-life group, who desires to make a greater impact!

David Kisaame, of Uganda accepted Jesus Christ in 1994,and immediately became actively involved in Church planting in local communities.

After graduating and receiving ordination in 2001,he began his pastoral call and has planted churches in Kenya, and his Native Country of Uganda under the name Greater Grace Ministries. It is here that he also teaches Bible college to those who are eager to learn. And runs an orphanage that provides care and schooling of the children.With love and moral teaching it gives them all a better chance in life.

In Uganda,abortion laws are too weak to be implemented and many young girls,and woman abort. This fact troubled Pastor David Kisaame and caused an aching in his heart. After prayer he formed a ministry to save unborn babies in his community.

Abortion is prevalent in Uganda for the following reasons.

1.Poverty- many young girls from the ages of 13-17 abort their children because they can not afford the care for them. Many are expected to work instead of attending school.

2. Young girls are not taught proper sexual education such as abstinence, or prevention.  National statistics show that only 9% of adolescents are using some form of contraception.

3. Teens are often pressured in school to become sexually active without considering the consequences.

4. Young girls are thrown out of their homes when they become pregnant, and are forced into an abortion to avoid chastisement.

5. Married woman are taught through Planned Parenthood to abort children as means of child spacing. They keep some children and abort the others.

An average of 800 abortions are performed daily,meaning about 300,000 babies annually. On average 1,200 will die from abortions performed locally in unsafe conditions.

Pastor David Kisaame works to prevent these unfortunate circumstances, and preserve life by operating a crisis pregnancy center.
This is their program outreach at Iganga Pregnancy Center.

To educate the community about the dangers of abortion, and the sanctity of life.

Take in the young girls who are rejected by their family, and care for their needs.
