Abortion can be difficult to deal with in the days, months, and even years after the procedure.
There are many obstacles when it comes to after abortion healing.
“I used to lie awake in bed at night wondering how old that child would have been or even the gender…”
“I never talked about my abortion to my friends because I thought they would judge me.”
“My boyfriend and I broke up because we couldn’t face each other after the abortion.”
The affects can be so subtle.
“I would get infuriated when I would see billboards with a Pro-life message…they have never walked in my shoes.”
“It is hard to be around women who are pregnant because I terminated my pregnancy.”
“Even though I thought I was doing the right thing, I feel so guilty about having an abortion.”
And many times debilitating.
“My depression just keeps creeping back. I have moments that I feel ok, but lately I haven’t been able to shake it off.”
“Every year, on the due date of my child, I cry all day.”
For decades both men and women have been gripped with isolation of the abortion experience. In many cases:
- Some can’t pinpoint the reason why they find it difficult to move ahead.
- Or they have a constant current of sadness regardless of where they are.
- And even memories or ideas as to what it would have been to have raised those children.
Pregnancy Care Clinic offers a 10 week post abortion healing Bible study for women and men, ‘Forgiven and Set Free’ for women and ‘Healing a Father’s Heart’ for men. These classes are lead by women and men who have been through an abortion and have found peace and healing through this class. They are there to facilitate the study and help each person find forgiveness and peace. Both classes are offered in both English and Spanish. “This ministry is a life changing experience”.
