The Health Benefits of Tears After Abortion

“I can’t stop crying,” the post-abortive woman shared when I asked her if she had been grieving. “I rarely shed tears and feel like they’ve been stored up for too many years. Will they ever stop?”

Many are fearful of grieving after abortion. Tears can arrive many years later due to the trauma of the abortion event. Others may find that they are crying for no reason at all and believe they may be losing their mind. Some may never connect their tears to this “choice” because they are working to “forget” it ever happened.

Many ancient traditions embraced “tear bottles” to collect their tears, like the photo above reveals. Pilgrims carried tear-shaped vessels on their journeys. Victorians caught their tears in similar bottles. When the tears evaporated, it signaled the end to mourning. Many tear bottles were made from a lump of clay the size of a human fist, because an individual’s fist is recognized as being the same size as the heart.

Abortion is an obvious death experience but few realize that truth when they make this decision. Society often communicates that if you make a choice to reject parenthood, grief is not necessary. Yet the heart often has a mind of its own where sorrow is concerned.

Psalm 126:4-5 reveals the spiritual benefits of grief – Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy…

Ignoring tears is often the first step on the typical American post-abortive journey. A heart that is full of unshed tears can be out of sync with God’s comfort. Tears draw us close to God. The lack of sorrowful emotions – particularly after the death of a child – can propel us into many other sinful behaviors that can increase our guilt and grief spectrum.

Anger and fear often are an ally in keeping sorrow away. Anger pushes away all thoughts of responsibility for taking away a baby’s breath. Blame shifting is a secondary tool in binding back regret which, when combined with anger, can result in deeper sin behavior.

Biologically, God made shedding tears essential as they are a filtering mechanism of our immune systems. Those who avoid emotions of bereavement seldom realize that this can have a negative impact on our health.

Research is now being conducted using tears as a diagnosis tool for physical ailments. Dr. Steven Harms is on the board of Ascendant DX, a research company that has created a test to detect breast cancer using someone’s tears. Harms shares that, “The tears are kind of a reflection of the blood. Most people have difficulty drawing their own blood but tears are very accessible to people.”

Ascendant research outlines some basic facts about tears:

  • They are less complex than blood and easier to study
  • Tears have high protein concentrations
  • Disease can cause proteins contained in tears to change
  • Studies have shown links between cancer and tear biomarkers
  • Ocular (eye) tissue is part of the filtering mechanism of the immune system

It’s long been a scientific fact that shedding emotional tears result in a special health benefits. Biochemist and “tear expert” Dr. William Frey learned that reflex tears are 98% water, whereas emotional tears also contain stress hormones which get excreted from the body through crying.

Dr. Frey determined that emotional tears actually shed hormones and other toxins which accumulate during stress. His research suggests that crying stimulates the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer and “feel-good” hormones.”

Grief over an aborted child often is triggered by a subsequent death experience. When my friend and neighbor, Dianne, was murdered in 1990, I had to cry. I didn’t have a choice. Because she died through murder, I would jump back and forth from deep-seated anger against those who planned her death to massive mourning spells.

Each tear that I shed over Dianne’s death reminded my heart of my aborted child. God triggered my mourning for my aborted child, Jesse, with Dianne’s death.

When my father and mother passed away, I cried for not only them, but for every person or pet missing from my life. Each death experience started renewed mourning for every past loss.

Human beings don’t get over grief, we get through it. I never want to “get over” losing my parents because that would mean I’ve forgotten them! Birthdays, holidays and anniversaries of their death keep these loved ones close to my heart. I will work to keep their memory alive in my heart even if that involves grief. The same is true for the child I lost at an abortion clinic.

Societal perspectives impact grieving too. Even at funerals, Americans are rarely comfortable around hearts in deep sorrow. Some mourners can become so overwhelmed with emotion that they cannot speak. Unabated grief can lead to loud and strange noises like wailing.

Those who encouraged another’s abortion decision often work to shut down post-abortive tears because it makes them uncomfortable. The emotions of abortion bereavement often shoot convictions through these enabler’s heart. The post-abortive person then is forced to lament in private without hope of comfort.

Adult grief can be difficult for children to comprehend. Kids can internalize their parent’s tears to the point where they believe they’ve done something wrong.

At some point, grief can overcome an individual like a wave on a beach. It rolls in, knocks you off your feet, and rolls out leaving you breathless. There is rarely a schedule of when the next wave will hit. Many triggers can spawn tears and it is important to express these emotions when they arrive.

Every tear is a precious part of abortion healing. Jeremiah 31:15-16 relays the particular agony of grieving a lost child – “… A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” This is what the Lord says: “Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded,” declares the Lord. “They will return from the land of the enemy.

It is difficult work to embrace the tears that God places in our body for children that have passed away. But the important work of mourning restores us and gives us hope. While our children will not return from Heaven, by naming them and grieving them, they return from the enemy’s grasp and become part of our hearts forever. We will see them again if we know Jesus.

If you have experienced abortion, understand that tears are not to be feared. Please give yourself permission to grieve at last. The Her Choice to Heal abortion recovery website can help you begin to address your need to mourn and our team is available to provide you with direct comfort.

Should you know someone that needs to grieve a past abortion, consider giving them permission to cry by offering them compassion. Sorrow can ignite God’s presence in a heart and bring them back into His comforting fellowship!

Abortion Pain in the Elderly Heart

“I had two abortions that I completely forgot about until now,” the elderly woman sobbed as I helped her light two candles during a memorial service at one of Ramah’s seminars. “My husband made the decision and I just put those memories away someplace in my heart and forgot about them all these years. Oh, God, please forgive me.”

At over 80 years of age, this dear post-abortive woman was finally making peace with God about a choice she had been unable to stop many years in the past. She had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Her pain was fresh and real, as if these abortions had taken place in the last few days.

Elderly post-abortive people exist all over the world. Many often encounter no obvious regret until nearing the end of their lives. Some have found God’s peace by quietly serving others. Others have lost not only children but grand and great grandchildren as well.

“At my mother’s funeral, my siblings were talking about my mother’s abortion in her youth,” another depressed caller shared with me. “She told them but never told me. Why wouldn’t she tell me?”

I had no answers for this older woman who was so distraught. All I could do is give her permission to grieve a lost sibling she never knew existed and encourage her not to judge her mother for being silent with her on this topic.

Women have their own reasons for not sharing their abortion truth. Many speak about it during trigger moments like births and deaths. Their pain is ignited and they quickly confess to anyone who will listen. Then they wrap up their hearts and go back into silence on the topic once the moment has passed.

In order to discover if a loved one experienced abortion, it’s good to bring up the topic in casual conversation. Speaking compassionately about the common pain of abortion at a spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical level with family can dislodge hidden secrets.

Vocalizing in a general way that you would never judge anyone that had an abortion can set a loved one’s heart at peace to share this truth. More importantly, share with them that there is no sin that God cannot forgive – even abortion.

When such a secret is revealed after someone has already passed away, it’s important to understand the individual’s walk with God. The key often is that those left behind are grieving and another lost family member has been added to that mourning cycle.

In ministry conversations, many women share with me that they are terrified of meeting their children in heaven. My answer is always compassionate.

“God is the only judge in heaven,” I share. “Those who have gone before us have been set free of the emotions of this World. They are at peace. I believe they will welcome us and don’t want us to fear that reunion. God knows our heart. Have you accepted Christ as your Savior?”

Perhaps as many as 43% of this age group has potentially experienced abortion. Post-abortive individuals are at every level of society, especially elderly care units like assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Seventy years ago, abortion was a very tightly held secret because it revealed the loss of virginity. Unexpected pregnancies held a deeper level of shame in that day and age. Most couples would marry immediately when they discovered an unexpected pregnancy, whether they loved each other or not.

If marriage wasn’t possible, adoption was often the forced choice in resolving any potential family disgrace. Despite the fact that it was not legal, women could still secretly obtain abortions.

Abortion methods and legality may have changed over the years but the impact on the heart is often the same. The elderly may just be better at hiding secrets than a younger generation. Information about the emotional, spiritual, psychological and physical impact of abortion has only been proclaimed in the last few decades.

The elderly often isolate themselves from difficult topics like abortion and simply never hear the message of the hope of God’s healing. Their generation rarely shared their sins in public as well. The shame of an unexpected pregnancy fifty to seventy years ago is far different from today.

As the only Judge in Heaven, God is clear in the Bible that there is no sin that He cannot forgive. Hebrews 10:15-18 reveals, The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.” Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.

There is only one requirement for a future residence in heaven, which is revealed in John 3:16, For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. If someone has not accepted Christ into their hearts when the pass away, they won’t meet these lost children when they die.

There is no timetable on abortion pain. This choice can be forgotten for decades yet triggered quickly when end of life issues arrive. The death of every loved one reminds us of those we have lost over the years. Grief expands and can overwhelm. It’s more essential than ever that these men and women be reached with the hope of God’s salvation and peace.

Those who have grieved their abortion and found God’s healing are typically excited about meeting their lost children at last. If they are afraid of a future heavenly encounter, it typically means more healing needs to be accomplished.

Hebrews 1:3 reveals the truth about God’s love, The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

This dear soul who was touched during our memorial service had the perfect opportunity to remember her aborted children and ask God for His forgiveness before Alzheimer’s took control of her mind. God’s timing was perfect and we were blessed to be there to help her finally grieve two children that she would soon meet in heaven.

If you have experienced abortion, the Her Choice to Heal abortion recovery program can help you address any conflict that exists in your heart. Our team would be blessed to help you begin to process this pain and/or refer you to a local abortion recovery program for tangible comfort.

For those of you who are actively working in abortion recovery, please prayerfully consider visiting a local assisted living or nursing home and share the truth that there is no sin that God cannot forgive – even abortion. Help these hearts come to a place of forgiving the younger version of themselves that made this choice.

How Many Women Have Chosen Abortion?

“There is no way that those abortion provider statistics are accurate,” the pastor concluded as we discussed abortion statistics. “I’ve never heard anyone from my congregation confess to an abortion.”

Just because women do not share their abortion stories does not mean we do not exist at every demographic level of our society. Most of us are sitting in silent prisons of pain, fearing the wrath of the world if anyone should discover that we allowed the tiny human inside our womb to die.

Some of us are at the upper echelons of large corporations while others at the bottom levels of poverty. Some of us have aborted more than once while others lost only one child. Many are in pain but have no idea that their abortion is the root cause.

Accurate statistics on the demographics of post-abortive people is nearly impossible to discover for many reasons. Ramah International typically uses Planned Parenthood’s research arm – The Alan Guttmacher Institute – for most abortion references. I cite abortion provider’s statistics simply because they are the only ones that come into direct contact with us.

It is interesting to understand that most women in abortion clinics have some level of a faith background at the time of their abortion. In 2014 the statistics relating to the faith backgrounds of women who abort were as follows: 

  • Mainline Protestant, 17%
  • Evangelical Protestant – 13%
  • Catholics – 24%
  • No religious affiliation – 38%
  • Other religious affiliation – 8%

These numbers can be very misleading as visits to abortion clinics are often filled with anxiety and stress. Most of us work to be as private as possible when completing abortion clinic intake forms. We use fake names yet still hope for honesty from those that are about to take our child(ren)’s lives.

When a Christian aborts, they often have a longer road in discovering God’s redemption due to deep shame and guilt. When someone accepts Christ after choosing abortion, past sins are forgiven and healing can arrive in an instant. Yet that is rare.

When I founded Ramah International in 1997, Planned Parenthood featured the following Guttmacher post-abortion statistic as part of their “Facts in Brief: Induced Abortion” research – At current rates, 43% of all American women will experience abortion at least once by the age of 45 years.

In 2008, through an updated version of the “Facts in Brief: Induced Abortion” research, Guttmacher adjusted the post-abortion rate down to 33% of all American women will experience abortion at least once by the age of 45 years.

At the end of 2017, this source reduced the number again, outlining that @24% of all American woman are post-abortive.

Why has this post-abortion number changed so much over the years? The answer relates to declining abortion rates among other variables. The millennial audience simply has not chosen abortion at the same rate as other generational groups.

The general post-abortion rate in the US must now be viewed across generational lines. Older abortion rates must be adjusted for various demographic groups. For examples:

  • At the time of my abortion, the post-abortion rate for my demographic age group was 43% of all American women. That leads to a basic conclusion that the post-abortion rate for women over 50 would be 43%. Think about it – nearly half of American women aged 50 or older had at least one abortion.
  • For women between the ages of 35 and 50 years of age, their post-abortion rate is likely more in-line with the 33% post-abortion rate.
  • For those under 35, likely their rate resembles the 24% rate based on the 2017 Guttmacher statistical information.

Obviously, this is just my educated guess when extrapolating abortion statistics. Due to my deep involvement in abortion recovery ministry over the last 27 years, I have likely heard more abortion stories than anyone else alive on Earth today. So my speculations are educated at a different level from those who rarely hear an abortion testimony.

True and trusted information on the American post-abortive demographic does not exist at a statistically significant basis due to the following reasons:

Changeable – How you feel today may not be the same as how you feel tomorrow. Post-abortive people can be unpredictable and changeable. Additional abortions increase this impact as do other “life” events like the death of family member or loved one, infertility, subsequent pregnancies, etc. Many are afraid to address abortion memories, fearing doing so could lead to a suicide decision. As a result many spend great amounts of emotional energy over the years working to forget they ever made such a choice.

Too Broad – Post abortive people comprise a large section of all American women over EVERY possible demographic. How a poor woman feels about her abortion can be vastly different to the emotions of wealthy women. Women of faith may experience deeper levels of regret than secular women with no faith background.

Rehearsed Innocence — It is “typical” for post-abortive women to practice ways to remain tranquil when the abortion topic is discussed in their presence. Numbness or emotional distancing can assist post-abortive women in remaining calm when abortion is discussed in their presence. If they are rehearsing their silence, they will likely never reveal their truthful feelings on a survey instrument.

Recovery Impact — Some women initially cope well after abortion but later find themselves in great emotional upheaval over this choice. Others who immediately are overwhelmed with regret and grief can attend an abortion recovery program and go on to live in peace. Those who have found healing present vastly different survey information than those who may not be struggling after abortion.

Impact of Abortion Procedure – Women who endure surgical abortions have vastly different experiences/emotions than those who utilize the medical (RU486) option. In addition, those who endured a late term abortion often go through an actual birth experience. Their pain and regret can be quite different as a result.

Cultural Influence–Since America is a nation of immigrants, it is a “melting pot” of cultures that have different perspectives on unexpected pregnancy and abortion. First-generation Americans are more impacted by an outside culture than those whose ancestors have lived here for many years.

Within some cultures/religions, the loss of virginity is a reason to expel or kill women, even if they have been raped. These women literally abort to avoid being publicly murdered. Within Christian cultures, where the sanctity of life is embraced, women abort to avoid bringing shame or judgment on their families.

Research Methods – Current research methods (standardized surveys) are typically inadequate in uncovering deeply entrenched emotional reactions for this “difficult to discuss” experience. Women are rarely truthful about their abortion on medical intake forms! If they are withholding information regarding their health, they likely won’t be truthful on a generic survey form or with an interviewer who asks troubling questions.

Which Symptom to Study? – There is no agreement among researchers about which Abortion PTSD symptom (relief, depression, grieving, self-destructive behaviors, etc.) they should attempt to survey as it relates to abortion, nor what level of symptoms should be considered substantial.

The next time you talk about abortion, please remember we are listening. Offer general statements of compassion when outlining the truth that abortion takes a human life. Let us know that there is no sin that God cannot forgive – even abortion!

If you or someone you know has experienced abortion, Ramah’s Her Choice to Heal online abortion recovery program can help you begin to understand how abortion’s pain has impacted your life.

Forgiving Jane Roe: Abortion’s Secondary Impact

“Can I have a cigarette first?”

Norma McCorvey, the infamous “Jane Roe” in the Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion in America on January 22, 1973, stood next to me behind the stage at Focus on the Family. This was one of Miss McCorvey’s first speaking excursion in the pro-life realm since accepting Christ – a 700 person conference for pregnancy center workers in February of 1998. Her request for a cigarette outlined her apprehension of what would happen over the next few minutes.

“There is no time, Miss Norma,” I answered.  “It will be okay. I’ll be standing next to you the whole time.”

She gave me a hug of appreciation and outlined, “These people from pregnancy centers are my heroes, Sydna. I hope they don’t hate me for making abortion legal. Is it okay for me to just talk to God when I pray?”

“However God leads you, Miss Norma, is fine,” I responded quietly. “Our audience will embrace you deeply. They are excited to hear from you. You’ll find love and acceptance here, just as I have as a post-abortive woman.”

Miss Norma’s book, Won By Love, had been published just six weeks earlier. This publication outlined her recent salvation experience which transformed her from abortion clinic worker to pro-life speaker. Miss Norma would later start a non-profit ministry called “Roe No More.”

A few minutes later, Miss Norma’s message through her prayer was gentle and simple – Help us, God, save these children from abortion. Forgive me for not doing more sooner.

Later she would confide to me, “I feel so responsible. Being part of the Roe v. Wade decision made me the face of abortion. It’s been an incredible weight for my soul but God carries my burdens now!”

While Miss Norma never had an abortion – and placed her baby for adoption – she had a good idea about my personal abortion pain. She offered me a rare comfort in saying, “I’m so sorry, Sydna.”

Accepting Miss Norma’s apology for her role in legalizing abortion was an easy way for her to pass this apology onto other post-abortive people. I comfort every reader today that this notorious “Jane Roe” cared deeply for women enduring post-abortion pain and was sincerely sorry that she ever took part in the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand at all stages of pregnancy.

Secondary abortion pain can result when someone is impacted by another’s abortion decision. Whether the person encouraged or fought against this choice makes a difference in how this pain will be processed in years to come.

Those who urge a woman to abort are typically the ones that receive the most hatred, responsibility and blame afterwards from the newly post-abortive person. Anger and hatred are often the first defense against post-abortion tears of grief. Conversely, those who told us not to abort are often the ones that we reach out to when the grief can no longer be denied.

In leaving the abortion clinic where my child died, my personality changed abruptly. The boyfriend who had coerced my child’s death met me at the door, picked me up and twirled me around saying, “Oh, Sydna! I thought they had killed you up there.”

His relief that I was still alive blew me away. I screamed as his embrace hurt me physically. In processing his comment, I realized suddenly that I could have died during that procedure. I then thought, ”What other consequences could there be?”

Then I encountered full blown outrage against this 21 year old man who had been my child’s father. He thought they were killing me but had waited in the car.  My “knight in shining armor” fell off his horse with a loud clank. Dark anger inside of me turned against him then.

It was essential in my abortion recovery healing eleven years later to forgive my child’s father. That was just as important as being able to receive Miss Norma’s heartfelt apology. God was processing my healing through forgiveness, which ended the rage and pain that surrounded me.

There is no sin that God cannot forgive. After abortion, we are often unable to forgive ourselves for allowing our child(ren) to die. We need God’s help to pardon the younger versions of ourselves for making such a horrible choice. Those who experience regret for being part of another person’s abortion decision often need to follow that same process for peace.

Miss Norma entered heaven in February of 2017. Her burden in connection with the legalization of abortion is gone. Her words of comfort will always be remembered.

Luke 7:44-48 shares the beauty Miss Norma gave to our world in her love for the unborn and the post-abortive – Then he (Jesus) turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

Ministering to Abortion’s Wounded Hearts

I hope this message arrives as an encouragement to you during the last days of 2017. God blessed our year by allowing us to minister to abortion’s wounded at a new and deeper level. Many of you have prayed for our efforts and financially donated as well. Thank you. As I reflect back on 2017, please know your support has certainly impacted every praise we are outlining in this message!

The year started out with some trauma. In early January we learned that the elderly parents of our neighbors had purchased our rental home, forcing us to move again in March. Since we had five training events scheduled from late February through April, stress ensued. Finding another affordable rental large enough to house Ramah International was difficult. God tested our faith because a house in our price range didn’t become available until twenty days before we had to move.

After the move, we came down with the flu which tanked us for over a week. A month later, we were traveling home from a seminar and were rear-ended in busy Kansas City traffic. Our car sustained four separate impacts before ricocheting back into three busy lanes of traffic, spinning twice as it careened to the other side of the road.

As we entered the spin cycle of this crash, Tom spoke the word, “Hallelujah.” The peace of God that passes all understanding came down upon us as we instantly surrendered ourselves to His will. While we expected to ascend into the heavenly realm, we ended up on the other side of the road as if we had pulled over to change a tire. Our vehicle was totaled and I sustained a concussion but no one else was injured. God obviously had more work for us to accomplish!

We then entered a very fruitful season of ministry. God was so very obvious in His control and protection over us in 2017 – which marked our twentieth year in ministry. Here are a few points of what God did through Ramah International in 2017:

Her Choice to Heal – Abortion Recovery Online!

Over the summer of 2017, we focused on our biggest task yet – developing a new online healing program at This free and open website will continue to be a work in progress but is now available to the world. It offers 9 sessions – each with 9 lessons. Each session is based on the emotions of healing – Abortion PTSD, Sharing Your Story, Denial, Anger, Forgiveness, Grieving Your Loss, Joy Comes in the Mourning, Shattering Sexual Soul Ties and Sharing the Secret of Abortion.

The session features new writings separate from what is available in our Her Choice to Heal abortion recovery program. Included below each session are healing activities, a daily Scripture reading program, devotionals and reading assignments that accompany the Her Choice to Heal recovery program.

The site has just finished the first stages of test marketing. We will be adding audio files soon so that folks can listen to the content. This new website is a perfect tool to support abortion recovery leaders as it answers so many common post-abortive questions. The Ramah  team is always available to help those who lack tangible healing services in their area as well. Our world finally has a tangible venue that can equip individuals with hope and a pathway to God’s healing after abortion.

Please pray for our efforts to fine tune this abortion recovery website and for the donations that are needed to begin to publicize it to the world. We will start initial marketing efforts with a mailing in February to pregnancy centers who can benefit the most from this valuable storehouse of information on how abortion impacts a heart. Then we will publicize it to the world later in 2018 with a promotional campaign.

As I worked through developing this website, God gave me encouragement from the story of the woman with an issue of blood. I was struggling with the idea of Ramah being one of the few ministries to the millions around the World who have been impacted by abortion.

God used Matthew 9:20-22 to encourage me – Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

It was empowering to have God’s assurance that His healing would be triggered when individuals simply visited this new website.

Best Training Year Ever!

We held 8 different training seminar events and trained over 960 individuals from 13 different states which represents our best year ever in helping pregnancy centers become more effective in abortion-vulnerable outreach. If you would like us to come to your area for a seminar, please contact me at [email protected]. Outside of a registration fee, there is no cost to host a seminar but it does involve helping us find a training location.

37 New Blogs

Over 2017, Ramah published 37 blogs that provide deeper insight into how abortion impacts women and their loved ones. Each blog contains a unique topic and it is heartwarming to see these writings appearing on general Google searches related to abortion. For example, if someone is feeling haunted after an abortion, and Googles “Haunting after abortion,” they will find our blog on that topic.

Our blog site at is separate from our main website. The blog enjoyed 35,326 sessions during the year, reaching 29,284 unique users and receiving 43,000 page views. New visitors comprised 82.1% (29,014 sessions) of our blog traffic and returning users were 17.9% (6,312 sessions). The Ramah’s Voice blogs continue to reach many hearts with the hope of God’s healing as well as encouraging healed post-abortive hearts in their life journey.

Thank You for Your Support!

Thank you so much for your wonderful support this year. Your prayers on our behalf are the most valuable. Financially, we have watched God provide just enough to meet our every need. For those who have financially sown into our effort, we trust that this giving has ignited God’s blessing over your life. Helping wounded individuals find God’s healing after abortion doesn’t cost a lot of money but it changes a heart completely by allowing God’s voice to echo in their souls for the rest of their lives.

If God encourages you to give our ministry a year-end tax-deductible donation, we will use every penny to continue to help abortion’s wounded find the hope of His healing. Publicity is essential in helping individuals discover the new Her Choice to Heal website! While we do everything at a low-cost level, we are trusting God to provide us with more donations to be able to simply reach that many more wounded hearts!

In closing, I leave you with the peaceful perspective of Simeon after he met baby Jesus (Luke 2:28-32) – Simeon took him (Jesus) in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.

I praise God that He has given us such wonderful friends like you and allowed us to continue to be a light for His peace! Thank you again for your support and know that you will be in our prayers! If I can help you in any way, please feel free to contact me directly at [email protected].

In Him!
