Counseling the Guilt of Abortion
The guilt a parent feels after abortion is immense. In counseling, one needs to not only

The article below reviews the guilt of one woman and how she fought through this guilt to ultimately find forgiveness in the Lord.
This article is from the 700 club and is written by Julie Blim. It is entitled, “Mother Finds Forgiveness After Secret Abortion”
“Secrets make you sick, and this secret was killing me,” Christina Ryan Claypool admits. “I worked in ministry, a Christian TV ministry, and I didn’t want people to know. My mother didn’t know. My best friends didn’t. No one knew.”
