4 Things You Might Not Know About Your Abortion
January 22nd was the 40th year of legalized abortion. Here are 4 things about your abortion secret.


If you’ve had an abortion, you are not alone.  You should find a safe place to share and perhaps even let your guard down enough to examine your heart for sadness.
A lovely woman from Ireland says it best when she affirmed the message that disenfranchised grief after abortion is real and needs to be dealt with in the lives of women of choice.


"The term disenfranchised grief has totally changed my life by giving me the key to unlock the anger that I have carried all these years and that anger which was hiding the pain and grief I felt.  Through the book, CPR ~ Choice Processing and Resolution, and a wonderful therapist beside me, I  have been able to work through and dig deep into my soul to bare the pain and re-emerge from the darkness.  I can't thank Ms. Johnson enough for writing the book to help people like me.”  Anonymous from Ireland.
