Get Educated about Abortion

One of the biggest fear that a woman who had been through the abortion, is the constant reminder how terrible her action was. This is the first kind of reaction she is likely to receive once people learn about her abortion. Sadly to say, but this reaction can come from her closest family and friends, but also from the her church community. In the woman’s mind, she is definitely going to hell for what she has done, what you or others can do is to show her the way to heaven. I highly recommend the book written by Pope John Paul II. Yes, even if you are not catholic, I strongly recommend this book. The title of the book is “The Gospel Of Life”, and its not only educational, but this encyclical gave birth to post abortion healing ministries within the church. Here is just short quote from the book:

Evangelium VitaeI would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child, who is now living in the Lord. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone’s right to life. Through your commitment to life, whether by accepting the birth of other children or by welcoming and caring for those most in need of someone to be close to them, you will become promoters of a new way of looking at human life.

If nothing else, this book can become very educational in terms of learning what is the true teaching of the catholic church in respect to abortion. This book is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, if you cannot afford drop me a line.
