Abortion Recovery

Did you know that over 40% of women have had at least one abortion in their lifetime?  I have been  ministering in abortion recovery for over 7 years.  It has been shown that women who have had abortions can suffer from many emotional problems as a result of their abortions.  Many women do not even realize their struggles are connected to their abortion.
