Lives Set Free!

AdobeStock_114865739Live Set Free! is an abortion recovery program which provides support to women who have experienced abortion, and to men who have been involved in, or were excluded from, an abortion decision. God’s merciful grace is shared and applied as a balm to hurting wounds, bringing about restoration to the glory of God!

Many women struggle with thoughts and memories of an abortion. A woman who has had an abortion may look fine on the outside…but on the inside, she may be hurting, feeling alone, and suffering in silent pain. The good news is…she is not alone. Those hidden feelings and pain do not have to go on forever. There is hope and healing for women struggling to come to terms with an abortion decision.

Some common symptoms following an abortion can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Regret/guilt
  • Sadness/sorrow
  • Anger/rage
  • Feelings of loss
  • Secrecy
  • Depression
  • Suicidal impulse
  • Isolation
  • Drug/alcohol abuse
  • Repeat abortions
  • Nightmares
  • Emotional pain

Some women may even experience post-abortion syndrome which is a type of post traumatic stress disorder. It occurs when a woman is unable to work through her emotional response from the trauma of an abortion.

Women are often surprised to find that abortion can be a traumatic experience. The grief a woman may experience after an abortion is seldom recognized and is often repressed or denied. Because abortion is considered a voluntary act, a woman’s grief after an abortion is sometimes not understood or supported. Post-abortion syndrome occurs when the grieving process is not complete.

Lives Set Free! offers healing to anyone experiencing any post-abortion symptoms and would like to find genuine, caring help. Our post-abortion support groups are led by trained volunteers who truly understand the heartache which so often follows an abortion.
