For women who have had abortions and are in pain because of that choice, there is hope! Jesus loves you and wants to heal you.

There are many women who have already had one or more abortions are suffering because of their decision and often feel there is no hope for them. But for these women, and men, who have been involved in abortion, there is hope. By God's grace they can find forgiveness and healing. Through prayer and putting one's trust in the Lord, they can find peace and even joy in living again.

Organizations such as Rachel's Vineyard (, provide healing retreats for women and men who suffer post-abortion trauma. Here they find a place of compassion and understanding, and a ministry of God's mercy and reconciliation which can open doors for them which they may otherwise have despaired of ever finding again. One's mental and spiritual health need not continue to get worse. There is help, as a woman named Michelle testifies of an experience in prayer one night at a Rachel's Vineyard retreat: "I cannot describe what happened that night. For the first time, I actually pictured children in heaven with God, and with my grandmother who passed away, and they were happy. They were drawing me in to God's love and forgiveness. That night, I knew God existed and that I am not a terrible person, and that I have already been forgiven by God and my children. It was overwhelming. Never had anything like this happened before in my life. I cannot begin to describe on paper, the wonderful sense of peace and love I felt that night. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before."

Organizations such as Priests for Life ( are active not only in the battle to end abortion, but also provide help for those who are considering abortion and think it is their only alternative. They need to know that they are not alone and that for them too, there is help.

Don't despair or be afraid. God loves you, and we also love you. We care about you as much as we care about the baby in your womb. Many in the Pro-Life movement are women themselves and many among them have been through what you're going through. Don't be deceived and exploited by the lies Planned Parenthood tell you, or pro-abortion politicians. They work to further the agenda of the culture of death, while calling it freedom and a mere matter of rights, all the while denying the right to life of innocent children whose very personhood they deny.

God is on your side and so are we. Please put your trust in Him, and protect the child in your womb.

"And we know that to them that love God all things work together unto good: to such as, according to his purpose, are called to be saints." (Romans 8:28)

There is help for you. You don't have to be alone in this. Seek God's help and guidance, and Pro-Life organizations that exist to offer help.

If you have already had an abortion, or have assisted someone in getting one, it isn't too late. Seek God's mercy and forgiveness. He is waiting to forgive you and heal you.
