Healing After Abortion
God’s Mercy Is for You
The turmoil women experience after having an abortion is sometimes called “post-abortion syndrome.” But you don’t need a technical term to describe what you are feeling. The guilt, regret, depression, and grief are the honest struggles of a woman who’s had an abortion and takes to heart what happened. In Healing After Abortion David Powlison shares that whatever reactions and emotions you experience, God is committed to entering into your struggle. He sympathizes with you in your weakness, but he offers more than sympathy. Jesus steps into your life with mercy, hope, and healing. Read this booklet and take to heart the tenderness of the God who promises to redeem your life.
