Denial is a wall of protection that an individual raises to cope with the emotional impact of an abortion choice. Module 3 outlines denial’s dysfunction and several activities to realize God’s truth. Also included is an outline of guilt and shame after abortion.
Anger is a God-given emotion. How we handle it can cause problems, particular when it turns to wrath and seeks revenge. Module 4 outlines post-abortive anger and helps identify ways to process it a healthy manner.
There is no sin God cannot forgive but after abortion many struggle to forgive themselves. Module 5 outlines three separate elements of forgiveness – receiving it from God, offering it to others and forgiving oneself for making this choice.
Since abortion is a choice, society does not recognize this as a loss that needs to be grieved. Module Six introduces a peaceful way to to remember children lost through abortion and honor their brief lives which enhances God’s healing process.
When healing is achieved, many want to help others to make a better choice than abortion. This optional module is for those who feel led to share their abortion story and includes detailed procedures to prepare to share publicly or privately.
