Project Rachel

 "The church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision [to have an abortion], 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. 

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." ~ Pope John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, #99

Project Rachel is a ministry of the Catholic Church that offers help to women and men suffering from an abortion experience, regardless of age, religion or connection to the abortion. Designed for those who are struggling after abortion, Project Rachel provides a safe place where specially trained staff can help you overcome grief and loss and give hope.
