New reality show to feature post-abortive mothers
I’ve previewed the first episode, and this show is a going to be ground-breaking. A description:
Surrender the Secret is a new reality television series that will premiere on Knock TV beginning January 22, 2013, on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. A description:
Surrender the Secret tells the real-life abortion stories of 5 women, and follows them as they go through post-abortion recovery. Together, these brave women embark upon a healing journey using an 8 session bible study specifically written for women who have had an abortion. See how they work through different healing exercises which help them get free from the bondages of pain, guilt and shame.
With an estimated 43% of women in the United States having had an abortion, and over 54,000,000 babies aborted since the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, the number of women suffering with their abortion secret is staggering
Over the ten episodes of this first-of-a-kind Christian reality TV series, the women form a close bond and trust each other as they open up and share their darkest secret, and how it has affected their lives. Surrender the Secret shows their amazing transformation, spiritually, emotionally and even physically, coming from the pain and shame of having an abortion in their past, releasing their anger, receiving forgiveness and finding peace in God’s love and grace.
It was totally surreal to watch a reality show focused not on Hollywood’s version of reality – Snooki, Kim, and The Donald – but on the secret reality of millions of women: abortion.
Surrender the Secret will help countless women who have been too afraid to analyze the consequences of their abortion, either alone or with others.
It will follow the Bible study by the same name, so I can envision many post-abortive mothers purchasing the book and following along at home.
I give these brave mothers, led by group facilitator Jill, pictured above right, mega-kudos for allowing themselves to be filmed.
Here’s the trailer…
