It's common to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one's heart so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness. Be assured that there is forgiveness, hope and healing - many women and men have participated in diocesan Project Rachel Ministries and returned to a loving relationship with God.
If you or someone you know is suffering after abortion, confidential, non-judgmental help is available from Project Rachel Ministry. Visit the "Find Help" map on HopeAfterAbortion.org to find the nearest diocesan ministry. Spanish speakers may visit EsperanzaPosAborto.org.
Project Rachel, the U.S. Catholic Church's ministry to those who have been involved in abortion, is a diocesan-based network of specially trained priests, religious, counselors, and laypersons who provide a team response of care for those suffering in the aftermath of abortion. In addition to referring for Sacramental Reconciliation, the ministry provides an integrated network of services, including pastoral counseling, support groups, retreats and referrals to licensed mental health professionals.
It is open to all . . . people of all faiths or no faith.
