Hello, I’m Sydna Massé, author of the book, Her Choice to Heal: Finding Spiritual and Emotional Peace After Abortion and the Founder and CEO of Ramah International, an outreach organization designed to offer the hope of healing to abortion’s wounded around the world.
It is very common for the post-abortive to work to forget their abortion experience. This can make memories of those moments difficult to remember. By simply writing out your memories about that time, you can unlock a deeper level of understanding. Writing can unlock hidden memories, reveal details that you’ve forgotten, outline pain that you haven’t considered and simply help you understand how you ended up in an abortion clinic.
Some prefer to write in other ways – in a journal, artistically, making a recording, or simply sharing with a trusted friend. Whatever way works best for you, recording your abortion experience is an important first step in healing. You may never share it with anyone but reading it back will build your understanding.
On the other hand, when you begin a healing journey with God you may experience deep memory recall. When this occurs, it can feel like you are watching a movie of someone else’s life. If you can embrace these recollections they can begin the process of healing your abortion wound.
Due to the need for secrecy after abortion, it could be that you are unable to share your abortion with others. The Ramah team is available to help you in that way. Please feel free to contact us for encouragement or with questions. We are always here to help!
