Many women and men in our families, churches and community have been involved with abortion and they may be struggling. We want them to know they are not alone. In fact, if you have not personally been impacted by abortion, it is likely that you encounter people every day who have had this experience.
Following an abortion, there may be emotions that are difficult to understand. Often they are pushed down and set aside to be dealt with later, in the hope they will go away on their own. They may be subtle – a sense of sadness, loss, regret or emptiness – thoughts and memories that creep into your awareness unexpectedly. Or there may be more profound impact – depression, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, or addictions.
At Hands of Hope Tucson, we offer the hope of Jesus to those who have been involved with abortion. We provide a safe and non-judgmental place to talk, and we help you identify and work through the emotional and spiritual impact of this decision. We believe there are two sides to full healing. One side is the need to grieve. We will help you grieve, in a healthy way, the loss of your child – alleviating those expressions of unresolved grief like depression, anger, etc. (Psalm 30:5 NLT “…weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning”). The other side is the issue of forgiveness. We will help you embrace God’s forgiveness so you can be free of guilt and shame – completely and forever! (Isaiah 44:22 NLT “…for I have paid the price to set you free”).
Because healing comes in different ways, we offer various options including: individual peer counseling with trained staff and volunteers; a group Bible study; or a 3 day weekend retreat. If you would like to speak with someone about a previous abortion, please call 520-321-9765 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. All inquiries are completely confidential!
