A Message from the Gospel of Life
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope...
You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child, who is now living in the Lord. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone's right to life."
-Saint Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae
You are not alone.
Many women experience trauma after an abortion: here are a list of the symptoms. You may think that no one else who has had an abortion feels this way, but you are not alone.
You may not feel that you can talk to anyone about the way you are hurting. There are many others like you, longing to rid themselves of the pain inflicted by their abortions. Simply acknowledging this pain is the first step toward healing.
