We aren’t professional counselors. But we have experienced firsthand what you are going through, and we have come out on the other side. We have found peace again, and we want to help you find it as well.
For over ten years, women and men have been coming to Clarity for help in healing their emotional and spiritual wounds from abortion. Our client advocates understand the pain and loss that follows abortion. Those of us who have been hurt by abortion know the deep pain that goes along with it. We know about the overwhelming grief, the regret, the shame and the remorse. Often, we feel what we have done is too horrible to be forgiven, and we certainly don’t think we can ever forgive ourselves.
The result of every abortion is loss. It is a loss unrecognized by much of society, but one that is real and valid. This loss creates a wound that will not heal on its own. While the pain may come and go to greater and lesser degrees, and although you may be able to stuff it deep inside for a time, for most people it resurfaces, sometimes within five to ten years or as much as forty years after the abortion. But through the support group study, there is hope and there is healing.
We are here for you. We care. We want to help.
