Are the Souls of Aborted Children with The Lord?
I have always felt as though I have an army of souls of unborn babies supporting me in my work, interceding before God. I pray to them always to obtain the graces I need to do this work of leading souls to Christ and healing. In the beginning, it was just my own son whose presence I felt, but as the years have passed, I know there are millions of souls, a whole army, behind the work, constantly interceding and praying for the healing and reconciliation of their families.

St. Therese: Trusting to the Point of Folly
She gave me the tools to deal with the darkness that enveloped my life because of abortion. Those times when I felt immersed in a darkened well unable to see or feel anything like hope because of my grave sin, her words were more than a little comforting.

A Pro-Woman Response to an Abortion Doula
Iwish Alex could spend some time listening to those of us who also believed they had no choice and who have since, by the grace of God, survived the aftermath of their abortion. The mothers who mourn, and suffer anxiety, depression, guilt and shame.

The Delusional World of Late Term Abortionists
Most couples given adverse diagnoses are never offered alternatives to abortion and report that they felt pressured into the decision by their OB or genetic specialist. In the traumatic situation of learning that their unborn child—whom they expected to be healthy and “perfect” in every way—parents are given little time to recover from the shock and explore other options.

After My Abortion, Why Can’t I Feel God’s Forgiveness?
Aleteia, Seekers of the Truth, July 14, 2014
There is a beautiful Eucharist Prayer in the Roman Missal that says this: “God of love and mercy, You are always ready to forgive, we are sinners and You invite us to trust in Your mercy.” He does not force us. He invites us. He tells us that his mercy is there for us, and it is up to us to accept his invitation.
Hope and Healing After Abortion: Mother’s Day Mercy & The Mother of God
“As Mother’s Day approaches, I know there are countess women out there whose abortion connectors are going off like fireworks. It seems on Mother’s Day there is no place to hide from the pain of having participated in an abortion whether you were coerced or it was what you perceive as freely chosen. The accusatory voices inside and outside of your head scream at you a little louder as the world celebrates the gift of being a mother, a gift you refused to accept.”

Speaking Out About An Abortion
Theresa Bonopartis • Catholic Exchange • 8/23/2010 – The pain of abortion is often shrouded in silence and shame manifesting itself in unhealthy ways on many levels for those who are post abortive. In John8:32 we are told, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” The truth about our abortion experience is no exception. Sharing our story with others is both healing and freeing, but does this mean you have to go public to be healed?
