    • EI says:

      How can we help? There are lot’s of groups and resources out there to help you.

    • Kelly Emery says:

      I am doing a research paper on the physical and psychological effects of abortion and I have been astounded to learn about the damage that is caused by abortion. I am also currently sitting in with a group of post-abortive women who are working throught their post-abortion trauma after years of anguish. I feel blessed that I got to see your post and I will be praying for you to continue to search for the truth so that you will be able to move forward in your life with strength and courage and peace. There is so much help for you and your baby. No child is unwanted. And no woman deserves to face a lifetime of regret and agony that aborting her baby is very likely to cause. God bless you.
