To The Editor; 

Way too many women are talked into or are forced into getting an abortion. After a while, many of these women realize that getting an abortion was the taking of a life, and they end up living with the pain and grief of an abortion. These women need help, and we need to show them some compassion, not point fingers at them. How you judge, you will be judged.


Help is available for them at Project Rachel, The Post-Abortion Healing Ministry of The Catholic Church. Project Rachel, who is open to anyone regardless of their religion, has a network of specially trained clergy, spiritual directors and therapists who provide compassionate “one-on-one care” to those who are struggling with the aftermath of abortion. 


Project Rachel was founded in 1984 in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, by Vicki Thorm. Project Rachel is in more than 110 Dioceses in the United States with more ministries forming. For more information, visit Portland-Diocese.org/ProjectRachel.
