We Offer Counseling
One of our many services at Pregnancy Counseling Services is our Post Abortion Bible Study (PABS) and support group. We offer counseling for the hurting woman who has aborted her child. Some women suffer what is called Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS). The symptoms may vary, such as rage, anger, depression, crying for no reason, overeating, drugs and alcohol abuse. Also feelings of unworthiness, low self-esteem and a hardened attitude. ("I'm just fine.")
Maybe after your abortion, you buried your feelings and never told anyone because of shame or embarrassment. Have you ever had time to grieve your loss and the emptiness that you are feeling?
A Healing, Helpful Study
Your abortion may have been years ago or maybe just yesterday, and you are hurting so bad inside and need to talk to someone. You might have regrets and wish you could take it all back. We have a compassionate heart for hurting women, and a healing, helpful study called "Forgiven and Set Free" written by Linda Cochrane. This study will help you with relief and denial, anger, forgiveness, depression, letting go, acceptance and much more. This eight-chapter book was developed to set you free from the bondage of guilt and grief that follows an abortion. Scriptures in this study help women deal with issues with which they are suffering because of an abortion. Women who have attended this support group have gone away whole again and healed of her past abortion issues.
Share Your Own Experience
Women share their own abortion experience. It is a 10 to 12 week study, 2 to 3 hours, one day a week. This is a very personal study group. We have a very safe environment in which to feel free to cry and grieve for our aborted children. The Holy Spirit and the Word of God do the healing in our hearts. Being able to talk freely about our abortions out loud (to speak it) helps to set you free from the heavy burden and secrets we have hidden and carried. The suffering of a secret, unspoken abortion can be like a sliver in your finger; it festers and hurts as it becomes infected. Our PABS support group will "pull out the sliver." Yes, it will hurt for a while, but then you can heal forever and be set free from the heavy burden. Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 11, verses 28 to 30, "Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart. You will find rest for your souls for my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
