Module 4: Addressing Anger

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.

Anger was a forbidden emotion in our house when I was young. My mother was raised in an abusive environment. When she grew up, she vowed no one would yell at her again. She was the only person in our house that was allowed to be angry.

It wasn’t that I never got angry. I just could not express it. During my abortion healing process, I prayed that God would help me express any anger emotions appropriately. It didn’t take too long for that prayer to bring back many memories to highlight the various paths of my internal fury.

My first step in healing was in acknowledging that I had the ultimate responsibility because no one had forced me onto that abortionist’s table. I came to realize that while my anger against my aborted baby’s father was authentic, it wasn’t helping me to heal.

These verses helped me let go of my anger and give it to God. Romans 12:19 shares this need – Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord. God is so much better at vengeance than we are and sees into hearts.

In John 12:46, Jesus says, I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

The anger inside my soul felt dark. I wanted God’s light to replace that dark spot. I knew that in my desire to find peace, I had to face my deep hostility. This module, along with Chapter 4 in my book, Her Choice to Heal, will help you with the emotion of anger after abortion.


5 Types of Anger After Abortion

Anger typically surrounds women before and after their abortion. Anger assists in addressing – or covering up – typical after abortion emotions like fear, guilt, longing, frustration, or hopelessness.

God’s Anger After Abortion

Many believe after abortion that they have committed an unforgivable sin that God can never forgive. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Bible Character: Paul

The Apostle Paul’s life is a perfect example of God’s ability to forgive any sin. Prior to finding Christ, Paul killed Christians with incredible brutality.

Anger Against Others

While only women possess the right to choose abortion, many voices can impact this choice. It’s important to recognize those you may be holding anger against.

Anger Towards Ourselves

Someone once said that holding bitterness and anger against another is like drinking poison, hoping the other person dies. Anger that is allowed in our hearts often grows deep roots of bitterness and lead to extreme self-hatred and dysfunction.

Is Abortion a Sin?

Today, sin is rarely discussed, even in churches. Pastors often avoid the abortion topic since it’s a highly charged political issue. But that doesn’t mean abortion isn’t a sin.

Why Didn’t God Stop Me?

Many faith-based hearts prayed before they aborted, asking for God to intervene if this wasn’t His will for them. These ambiguous prayers are often answered, just not in the way we expect.

Justice After Abortion

Like curtains on our eyes, denial after abortion has many shapes and forms. Many perceive they can forget about this choice. By locking this secret sin the deepest chambers of our heart, we often go on to act like nothing has happened.

The Incredible Stigma of Abortion

Abortion stigma for me began the moment I realized I was pregnant. In even considering abortion, many women cross the line of their own personal conscience. One step can lead to another until you are quickly, “pregnant no more.”
