How do you know you need healing?

Hello, I’m Sydna Massé, author of the book, Her Choice to Heal: Finding Spiritual and Emotional Peace After Abortion and the Founder and CEO of Ramah International, an outreach organization designed to offer the hope of healing to abortion’s wounded around the world. 

Perhaps you are thinking, “Okay, so I had an abortion. But that is in the past. Do I really need healing?” 

Some women seemingly never need to work through any kind of healing process. But for most of us the memory of abortion lies hidden within, like an infection, weakening and impairing us in ways we never thought possible. 

If you are one of the millions of women who have experienced abortion, you know that the memories associated with this experience can be difficult and even painful. Yet months and years may go by without any memory of the abortion. 

Then suddenly you find yourself recalling deep memories of this choice. Triggers like seeing children that are the same age your child might have been, or the anniversary of the abortion or the due date of the child, may leave you feeling anxious, scared, and fearful. 

Is that true for you? See if you recognize yourself in some of the following questions: 

Do you feel reluctant to talk about the subject of abortion, or do you feel guilt, anger, or sorrow when discussing your own abortion? 

Do you tend to think of your life in terms of “before” and “after” the abortion? 

Do you have lingering feelings of resentment or anger toward people involved in your abortion decision? 

Have you found yourself either avoiding relationships or becoming overly dependent in them since the abortion? 

Have you begun to increase the use of drugs or alcohol since the abortion, or do you have an eating disorder? 

Have you felt a vague sort of emptiness, a deep sense of loss, or had prolonged periods of depression? 

Do you sometimes have nightmares or flashbacks relating to the abortion? 

If any of these points relate to you, it is possible you could be experiencing Abortion PTSD. Take the Abortion PTSD Assessment Test on If you score 2 or more on this test, you may be struggling with Abortion PTSD. 

If that is the case, is designed to help you begin to address this pain and find God’s healing.
