Ramah is heard the sound of moaning,

of bitter weeping!

Rachel mourns her children,

she refuses to be consoled

because her children are no more.

Thus says the LORD:

Cease your cries of mourning,

wipe the tears from your eyes.

The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward…

There is hope for your future.

– Jeremiah 31:15-1

 

What does the Church say to women who are experiencing the aftermath of abortion?

Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life) 1995, #99 “I would like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. “If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. You will come to understand that nothing is definitely lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child, who is now living in the Lord.”

 

PROJECT RACHEL

What is Project Rachel?

Project Rachel is named for the Old Testament figure who wept over the loss of her child. Like Rachel, many women discover that the loss experienced after an abortion leaves them traumatized and inconsolable. In their experience of pain and regret, they long for a merciful and compassionate response from the Catholic Church. Project Rachel is such a response. It is an outreach of the Catholic Church to women who are struggling with the aftermath of abortion.
