Steps of Healing


Everything broken by abortion can be made
whole again in Christ, who says:

“See, I make all things new!”

The steps of healing are simple.  You will. . .

  • Hear the special word of God’s love.

  • Share stories, thoughts and feelings.

  • Learn about the abortion as a decision, a loss and a wound.

  • See its influences and effects.

  • Let go of the past and stop condemning yourself and others.

  • Reconcile with God and with the child (and with yourself).

  • Witness and commit to a new life of joy and peace in God’s love.

In short, you will make a New Choice!

Hope over despair

Honesty over denial

Understanding over self-hatred

Love over rejection

You can’t heal alone.

Abortion is primarily an act of rejection and separation, and so the work of healing is primarily of acceptance and reconciliation.

You will be accepted by others, learn God’s acceptance and you will learn how to accept others.  You will come together again with the Lord and with your child.
