One of the big dark secrets of abortion!
Women experiencing abortion aftermath are likely to report: grief, depression, sense of loss, guilt, low self-esteem, suicidal ideation, alcohol or chemical abuse, sexual dysfunction or promiscuity, phobias, nightmares, "baby" dreams, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts concerning the abortion, compulsion to become pregnant again, involvement in abusive relationships, anger, eating disorders, increased anxiety in subsequent pregnancies, episodes of uncontrollable weeping, inability to form intimate relationships, inability to adequately bond with subsequent children; some experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.*
Men experiencing abortion exhibit rage, a sense of impotence, grief, and will often describe risk behavior, alcohol or drug abuse and sometimes become involved in father’s right issues.*
Siblings will often develop the symptoms of survivors’ syndrome, particularly guilt and abandonment by parents.*
But for all of this pain that can be experienced for many years there is forgiveness through our God. To help in the healing process is Project Rachel. Project Rachel is the confidential and compassionate outreach to women (and Men) who have had an abortion or have been involved in an abortion decision. Its purpose is to foster reconciliation and healing between the parent, and Christ, His Church, the child and all other significant relationships.
As Knights who are in the forefront of the Respect
Life cause we need to be aware of the trauma people can experience and
where they can obtain help. For information on Project Rachel call

I would like to thank all the Knights who participated in the Life Chain on
October 1, 2000. We had an increase in participation from last year and also
Knights from other councils. It was a very prayerful and peaceful way to
show our support for the unborn.
