St Joe Community Church welcomes abortion victim as guest speaker on Roe v. Wade anniversary
FORT WAYNE -- St Joe Community Church welcomes Silent No More’s Rochelle Bloomfield to serve as a guest speaker for Sunday, January 21, 2018. The worship service is annually dedicated to observing the 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states.
In 1982, Rochelle was 17 years old and facing an unplanned pregnancy. In the wake of her decision to abort her daughter, Rochelle struggled for years with guilt and regret. In 2008, Rochelle joined a bible study sponsored by Fort Wayne-based A Hope Center, a ministry that helps post-abortive parents recover from decisions to abort their children. That bible study helped Rochelle find forgiveness in Jesus Christ and subsequently reach out to others struggling from abortion decisions, as well as those presently facing unplanned pregnancies.
23 years later, Rochelle is now the mother of two children, and the grandmother of one. She is a healthcare case manager at Park Center and member of Pathway Community Church, which featured her testimony of post-abortion recovery in 2006.
