To many young Vietnamese people today, abortion is just another means of contraception. About 40 percent of pregnancies in Vietnam end in abortion according to a report by doctors in Hanoi. The concept of the sanctity of life is not widely taught, and overall, abortion is not taboo in Vietnamese society. Though the government’s two-child policy has been lifted, the effects of such ideals still influence families to have selective gender abortions. These are sad reminders that Vietnam has one of the highest rates of abortion in the world.
Pray for Vietnamese people to learn that life begins at conception. Ask that families will cherish each child they are given no matter what gender.
Pray that the gospel would transform Vietnamese young people in the way that they think and act when it comes to sexual immorality and abortion.
