Forgiveness after an Abortion

All mothers of conscience will suffer feelings of guilt and remorse. There is only one permanent solution for a grieving mother: a solution based on reality, not on denial or pretense. This solution is FORGIVENESS.

Our merciful God loves us and wants to forgive us and help us find peace. However, forgiveness is a gift that must be received to take effect. Just like any other gift, we do not receive forgiveness until we choose to receive it. God does not want anyone going through life punishing themselves for having an abortion or being part of an abortion.

Women who have had an abortion can accept God's gift of forgiveness and if more help is needed, seek professional help. Attending a retreat like Rachel's Vineyard and Project Rachel (which are very active in our nation) can be very helpful.

Many women who have had abortions carry understandable bitterness toward men who used or abused them, toward parents and friends who were insensitive to their predicament, and towards those who misled or pressured them to abort. God wants women to take the forgiveness He has given them and extend it to others. This frees them from the awful burden of resentment and bitterness. .

After accepting God's forgiveness, a wonderful way to heal and give something back (for a woman who has had an abortion) is to commit herself to the pro-life movement in defending life and reach out to other prospective mothers in crisis pregnancy situations. In this way, God uses us to help others and share with them His love and guidance.
