When God’s Love is the Only Answer

Marcie just wanted to be loved, but after a string of boyfriends, pregnancies and abortions, she was lonely and broken. Read Transcript


Reporter: AT FOUR YEARS

OLD, MARCY SCHNEIDER DIDN'T

REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT

DIVORCE MEANT.

ALL SHE KNEW WAS THAT BOTH

HER PARENTS STARTED NEW

FAMILIES AND SHE MISSED

THEIR ATTENTION.

SHE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AS A

CHILD, BUT IT WAS HER

GRANDCHILD WHO GAVE HER THE

AFFECTION SHE LONGED FOR.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS

EVERYTHING TO ME.

AND PROBABLY SOMEONE THAT I

REALLY FELT LIKE GAVE ME

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

Reporter: HE THEN HER

GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY, AND

MARCY FOUND LOVE ELSEWHERE.

I LOST MY VIRGINITY AT A

PARTY.

I THINK IT WAS TRYING TO

FILL THE LOSTNESS.

FEELING THAT SOMEONE CARED

ENOUGH TO HAVE SEX WITH ME.

Reporter: AT 16 SHE HAD

BECOME PREGNANT.

SHE TOLD HER MOM, EXPECTING

SHE WOULD GIVE HER SUPPORT.

BUT HER MOM ONLY WANTED A

QUICK, QUIET SOLUTION, AND

ARRANGED FOR MARCY TO HAVE

AN ABORTION.

SO IT WASN'T EVEN REALLY

A THOUGHT PROCESS.

IT WAS, LIKE, WE'RE GOING TO

FIX THIS BECAUSE NO ONE CAN

KNOW.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A

DISGRACE TO THE FAMILY FOR

ANYONE TO KNOW I WAS

PREGNANT.

I THINK THAT HER RESPONDING

LIKE THAT KIND OF ADDED TO

MY EMPTINESS.

THERE IS ANOTHER VOID,

ANOTHER PLACE WHERE I NEED

SOMEONE TO LOVE ME

UNCONDITIONALLY.

Reporter: SIX MONTHS

LATER SHE BECAME PREGNANT

AGAIN.

THIS TIME SHE KEPT IT FROM

HER PARENTS AND WENT IN FOR

A SECOND ABORTION.

I FELT LIKE THERE WAS NO

OTHER WAY.

AND I FELT LIKE THERE WAS

NOTHING ANYONE COULD HAVE

DONE OR SAID TO CHANGE IT.

Reporter: LATER SHE

MARRIED SOMEONE FROM SCHOOL,

AND THEY HAD A DAUGHTER,

BRITTANY.

BUT THE MARRIAGE DIDN'T LAST

MORE THAN A YEAR.

AFTER A FEW YEARS, SHE MET

MARK AND FELL IN LOVE.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE SHE

WAS PREGNANT ONCE AGAIN.

I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO

LEAVE.

AND I THOUGHT IF HE FELT

TIED TO ME FROM A CHILD,

THEN HE WOULDN'T WANT TO

STAY.

Reporter: SO MARCY HAD

ANOTHER ABORTION, BUT THIS

TIME SOMETHING WAS

DIFFERENT.

HAD A LOT OF SHAME.

AND THEY SHOWED ME MY BABY

ON THE ULTRASOUND.

AND I DIDN'T THINK THERE WAS

ANY OTHER CHOICE.

AND I WENT THROUGH WITH IT,

EVEN AFTER THAT.

THAT'S REALLY BEEN THE

HARDEST ONE TO DEAL WITH.

Reporter: MARCY TRIED

TO PUSH HER THOUGHTS ASIDE

AND MOVE ON.

EVENTUALLY SHE AND MARK

MARRIED AND HAD A SON,

BROCK.

NOW THAT SHE HAD A FAMILY,

MARCY STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH, LIKE SHE DID GROWING

UP.

BUT THAT WASN'T ENOUGH TO

EASE THE BURDEN OF GUILT SHE

WAS CARRYING.

IN MY HEART I KNEW IT WAS

WRONG.

EVERYTHING I DID WAS JUST

GETTING ME A LITTLE BIT

FURTHER FROM GOD.

Reporter: MARCY LEARNED

ABOUT A GROUP CALLED

"CONQUERERS."

THEY HELP WOMAN WHO HAD

ABORTIONS TO FIND

FORGIVENESS AND HEALING FROM

JESUS CHRIST.

IT WAS THERE SHE FOUND

HOPE.

GOD WAS TRYING SO HARD TO

SAY, LET ME HEAL YOU.

IT'S OKAY.

I'VE FORGIVEN YOU.

Reporter: SHE

REDEDICATED HER LIFE TO

CHRIST.

I LEARNED THAT GOD DOES

FORGIVE, AND I ALSO LEARNED

THAT GOD IS A COMFORTER.

AND HE IS NOT A PERSON, AND

SO FOR ME TO TRY TO FORGIVE

IT OUT, ANALYZE IN MY MIND,

HOW COULD HE FORGIVE ME OVER

AND OVER AGAIN, I FORGOT

ABOUT THAT.

I SURROUNDED MYSELF TO THE

LORD AND SAID, DO WITH ME

WHAT YOU WILL.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

FORGAVE HER MOTHER.

SHE SAID SHE WAS SORRY

FOR WHAT SHE HAD DONE.

AND IT REALLY OPENED THE

DOOR FOR OUR RELATIONSHIP.

AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS A

LOT BETTER.

I MEAN, IT'S WONDERFUL NOW.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, MARCY HAS GROWN IN

CHRIST.

SHE STAYS BUSY WITH FAMILY,

CHURCH, AND HER NEW JOB AT

THE ARLINGTON PREGNANCY

CENTER.

SHE HOPES THAT SHARING HER

STORY WILL HELP YOUNG WOMEN

MAKE A BETTER CHOICE.

I DO FEEL GOOD ABOUT

BEING ABLE TO CONNECT WITH

WOMEN.

SOMEONE CAN SIT IN THERE AND

READ THEM INFORMATION ABOUT

ABORTION, AND READ THEM

INFORMATION ABOUT

PRE-MARITAL SEX.

BUT FOR SOMEONE TO TALK TO

THEM AND SAY, I WOULD GIVE

ANYTHING TO GO BACK AND

CHANGE IT, THAT'S

DIFFERENT.

Reporter: MARCY SAYS

NOT ONLY HAS CHRIST GIVEN

HER FREEDOM FROM SHAME, HE

ALSO GIVES HER UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE.

GOD HAS DEFINITELY FILLED

VOIDS IN MY LIFE BY SPENDING

TIME WITH HIM AND GETTING TO

KNOW HIM.

GOD IS MY SAVIOR, MY REDEEM

MORMY REDEEMER, MY

PROVIDER, EVERYTHING.
