Many women in our families, churches, and the community at large, have had abortions and are struggling. We want them to know they are not alone. Because so many men and women have had an abortion, chances are there are people that you encounter every day who have had that experience.
The emotions that can follow an abortion often get pushed down and set aside to be dealt with another time, or in the hope that they will go away on their own. The reality is that they are likely to resurface and cause pain and frustration in ways that are unexpected.
We at First Image offer the hope of Jesus to those who have participated in abortion through Heart.
Heart is a biblically based recovery group for women who have been affected by an abortion decision. We have seen the lives of many women transformed through these groups over decades. Women come together in community on their journey of healing, are comforted by each other, and can come to know the healing, grace, and forgiveness Christ offers.
It is our prayer that every woman that participates leaves with greater hope and peace in Jesus than when they first came in.
For those that are not sure how they feel about their abortion and aren’t ready for the commitment of a longer recovery group, we have After Abortion, which is a drop in group where women have the opportunity to process their abortion experience in a safe environment through talking or listening, regardless of their background. This is a place where you will be met with grace, acceptance, and support.
