Hope After Abortion

Project RachelWe understand that feelings of grief, anxiety, guilt and anger are common not only for the woman who underwent the abortion, but also for the man involved, family, friends and even medical personnel.

The pain of loss is often buried initially, but may be manifested by relationship difficulties, depression, or other emotional and spiritual problems.

We understand that the pain caused by involvement with abortion is often not recognized by our society.

We offer compassion and mercy to those who are hurting emotionally and spiritually after involvement with abortion. We recognize that all of us have made choices that we later regret.
