Jesus’ Love Covers All-Abortion Recovery

Note: This is not a discussion of the pros and cons of abortion. Both sides of the argument agree that grief after abortion is real and women must be given their voices back to process the grief.

Pro-choice woman: “Once a woman decides to have an abortion she has to try to cope with her experiences and her emotions on her own.  I wish that women could share their stories openly without fear of being judged by society.  Abortion is such a hot topic and there are many people shouting loudly on both sides of the argument.  Sadly, the one voice you never hear, and perhaps the voice that is most important, is the woman who has had an abortion.”

Pro-life woman: “I might have found healing years earlier had I not been so terrified of the Church.  Had I been able to address the pain emotionally, maybe then I would have been able to face the spiritual side of this.”

Have you had an abortion and feel like you have never emotionally recovered from it? Are you unsure about how to go about recovering from the abortion? If you answered “yes,” you are not alone. Many women have the same experience and have never worked through the recovery process. This selection of readings is meant to begin the journey or support an ongoing journey:
