It Still Hurts

Abortion hurts.

If you've had an abortion you know how much it hurts. It’s not over and done with when you walk out of the building.

I want you to know something. And I say this from the bottom of my heart. You are loved. You can be forgiven. And healing is possible.

I want to share a video that has a powerful message of hope for those who’ve suffered through an abortion.

Here is a link to a video of a woman named Lisa who dealt with abuse, divorce, and had three abortions. She has an incredible witness about the healing she received. The beauty of being Catholic is that besides counseling, we have the Sacrament of Confession where Christ Himself forgives us. Lisa experiences peace when she stopped hiding her abortions in the dark. Her shame was wiped away.

The most moving part of this video to me is when she says she can’t wait to get to heaven and have Jesus tell her, “you have three beautiful children here to meet you.”

As always, I’m praying for you.

About the Author

I'm just striving for sainthood through lots of imperfect ways. I daydream about heaven, where I want to be the patron saint of lifeguards. I think I might paint my nails just so I can pick it off. I wrote a book about Mary and what she taught us about being a Catholic girl. It's called "That One Girl" and I think you'd like it!
