The Choice to Heal
God knows my name and hears me when I call out to Him.
A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more. Jeremiah 31:15
God promises to heal the broken hearted and bind up our wounds. The process of healing is typically led with what is often termed, “spiritual surgery of the heart.” Healing starts when we read God’s Word (the Bible) and apply it to our thoughts so that it lines up with God’s will and grace that He so freely gives us. There will be times you want to quit but hang in there. His promises are true. He desires nothing but good for your hurting heart.
By viewing this page, we are assuming that you have been negatively impacted by someone else’s abortion. This class, or “module,” is designed to help your heart find peace with this loss and begin to heal. Each lesson in this class will have activities to help you process this healing along with questions for you to consider and answer. This process will help build an understanding in your heart of what happened, how it impacted you and then walk you through God’s healing.
Our team is always available to assist you in this process. Feel free to contact us at any time using the contact button.
If you have personally chosen abortion, please consider completing the other modules on this website if you have not addressed this pain in your heart.
How This Abortion Impacted You
There are four aspects of involvement in abortion for those that are not the parents of the lost child. These include the following scenarios:
- You did not know about the pregnancy and subsequent abortion and learned about it after the fact. The abortion could have occurred yesterday or years ago.
- You knew about the pregnancy and subsequent abortion but were not involved or refused to participate in the abortion, allowing the decision to abort solely be the pregnant woman’s choice.
- You knew about the abortion and disagreed or may have actively tried to stop the abortion but had no legal standing to do so.
- You pressured or encouraged the abortion. You may not have allowed the impacted individual any other option but abortion. You may have gone with her to the abortion clinic and helped pay for the abortion.
This class will use the four aspects above, offering two basic approaches for healing as follows:
- You found out about the abortion after the fact. You did not have prior knowledge of the pregnancy; and did not participate in any way with the decision to abort.
- You knew about or may have participated the abortion.
Healing is for you. When you are healthy, you can begin to have a healthier relationship with the individuals you know who aborted. This process will require time, thought and complete honesty between yourself and God. Without this level of truth, you may not experience all that God wants to give you or find lasting relief from your heartache and pain.
On a piece of paper, please answer the following questions:
How did you learn about the abortion and what was your involvement?
How would you describe your life emotionally, physically, and spiritually before you knew about the pregnancy and after the abortion?
What are you hoping that God will do for you through this Bible study?
Complete the following:
Read Lesson 2 – A Grandmothers Story – Cut and paste anything in this story that touches your heart and save it for future reference.
Complete Activity 2.1 – My Story – Have you ever told your story? Piecing together this abortion story can clear up misunderstandings. Even when facts are missing, some basic conclusions can be drawn. Ask God to help you in asking good questions if possible and to process this information in a healthy manner. There may be details that you are unaware of so only record what you remember or what involves you. Do not worry about including all the details. If it has been many years since the abortion, you may remember more details later. Feel free to add a list of questions that you may want to ask in the future of this child’s parents. Pray and ask God to help you remember what is most important in healing your heartache. Tell it now to God by writing out this history.
