Bulgaria.........7.5 million people........160,000 abortions per year.

Bulgarian girls can receive abortions as young as age 13 and view the "procedure" as a form of birth control rather than the destruction of human life.

Granted, fewer abortions occur annually in Bulgaria compared to the million or so performed in the United States, but we need to open our eyes to these alarming statistics in other countries, rather than focus solely on America.

Heartbeat International already has an affiliate on the ground in Bulgaria, educating women and encouraging abstinence before marriage. She has even opened a pregnancy center to provide support and counseling to those facing an abortion or the aftereffects of one.

Keep Bulgaria in your prayers this week, especially the young women who are considering abortion. Pray that God will bring older women alongside these girls to guide them through their decisions.
