Life After Abortion

Deciding to go through with an abortion is a very difficult decision. There are many short term and long term effects. Abortion often effects a woman physically, psychologically, and in her relationships with friends, family, and her spouse. Though in a different way, men are very much effected as well.

There is help for those that seek reconciliation and healing. Below are some local resources. Many are available free or at low cost.

The Rabboni Institute for Learning and Healing (RILH) is a full-spectrum healing ministry combining traditional medical and psychological services with the healing power of prayer and the Sacraments. As our society faces a significantly higher physical and psychological disease burden, the RILH aims to effect change by discovering the root cause of the disease and severing the hold it has on the body, intellect, and will.

Where traditional medical and counseling practices may stop at the surface, offering only medicines and coping strategies, the collaborative staff of the RILH discerns if deeper healing is necessary. Ultimately, the connection of the Body, Soul & Spirit are acknowledged so we may offer…Complete, Integrated & Holistic Health Care.
