"Surrender the Secret"

With an estimated 43 percent of women in the United States having had an abortion, and more than 54 million 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.

Surrender The Secret tells the real-life abortion stories of five women and follows them as they go through post-abortion recovery. Together, these brave women embark upon a healing journey using an eight-session Bible study called Surrendering the Secret (authored by Pat Layton, LifeWay Press, 2008), specifically written for women who have had an abortion.

"Surrender The Secret" will premiere on on January 22, 2013, the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade. During the 10 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.


Robert RoganCMDA Member, Psychiatrist and Family Medicine Robert Rogan, DO, JD: "The abortion issue is prominent in today’s news. The 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Russia’s banning of all U.S. adoptions and our teetering economy all serve to remind us of the tremendous cost of abortion. Did not our Master Himself say, 'See that you do not despise one of these little ones...' (Matthew 18:10, NASB)? Or in Exodus 23:7 say, 'Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty' (NIV 1984). Deuteronomy 27:25 adds, 'Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person' (NIV 1984).

"Now as we in medicine realize the painful effects of abortion on every woman involved and many of the men, a new TV program is coming on the scene. Premiering on January 22 on the internet from Knock TV, 'Surrender the Secret' will guide us through the potential steps to begin understanding and healing. The viewing audience follows the healing and restoration of women who underwent abortions as they go through a Bible study. After reviewing the pilot episode, it is exciting to see that truth about abortion’s physical and emotional carnage is finally visible for all to see. The PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) of these women is more subtle than that from wartime combat, but just as real.

"Only available initially on the internet, the program can be viewed at will in private for those only now willing to admit the pain. I pray word will spread and this new entry can lead to release and healing for those so long bearing the scars hidden from our view. The pain of these women is palpable, but now so is the hope.

"As doctors, let us get the truth out so that the outcry itself can stop or at least slow the slaughter of the innocent."
