Psalm 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (New American Standard Bible)
Psalm 34:18 If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath. (The Message)
This is a neutral, nonjudgmental place to talk about the effects our abortions have had on us. People don’t agree about abortion, and that’s okay. It is our choice to agree or disagree; hopefully we personally do our own research and get all the facts before we make that decision.
This is not a place to discuss or argue for or against abortion. Nor is it a place to discuss or argue about whether abortion psychologically damages women. It hurt me, and it has hurt many, many other women. The trauma was real. I did not suffer trauma because I am a weak person. I suffered trauma because one day many years ago I chose to end the life of my unborn child. But beauty has arisen from the ashes. I now walk with women and men as they seek healing from the trauma abortion has caused in their lives.
My heart’s cry is to see healing in all who have been hurt. Whether you were the one who underwent the abortion, or you are the father, friend, grandparent… you were affected. There is hope and there is healing.
