Abortion doesn't help; it hurts
The idea that abortion solves problems is a deception and illusion. The reality is that it solves nothing and brings a host of problems of its own.
Through the links on this page, we will provide an ever-increasing understanding of some of those problems, and some of the help available to bring hope and healing.
Nobody knows exactly how many women suffer the after-effects of abortion. What is clear, however, is that the more one searches, the more one finds. More research is necessary in order to bring the public the most reliable information on this critical issue of women's health.
Some complications of abortion flow from the inherent dangers of the procedure itself. Others come from the carelessness and callousness with which it is carried out. Some women never survive a legal abortion.
If all the abortions in our world stopped tomorrow, the task of healing will have only begun, and will go one for decades. The task of bringing hope, healing, and reconciliation to all who have been involved in abortion will be a more and more dominant aspect of the pro-life mission of the Church.
