Can you recommend materials or organizations that reach out to women who are struggling with the effects of Post-Abortion Impact? I have a strong desire to help women who are dealing with this issue.
For guidance, encouragement, and material resources designed to aid you in your efforts, we suggest you visit the Pro-Life page of our Focus on the Family website. On this site you'll discover a number of downloadable resources, including our The Dignity and Sanctity of Every Human Life .You might also find it helpful to take a look at the OptionLine website. This organization provides referrals to Pregnancy Resource Centers that sponsor post-abortion ministries.
We'd also highly recommend Surrendering the Secret , a video series published by LifeWay Christian Resources. This eight-part DVD presentation (which can be ordered together with a Leadership Kit) leads participants along the path to healing by way of an honest, interactive Bible study. It includes meaningful group experiences, unique journaling exercises, and opportunities to build a confidential, caring community. This resource is especially geared for use in pregnancy resource centers, small support groups, women's ministries, and church-sponsored soul-care ministries.
Below you'll find several additional referrals and resources that should prove helpful.
