“My e xperience with Project Rachel was profound—deeply moving. It connected me to a poignant grief that I did not know I had.
For so many years I was disconnected from the reality of the choices I made.
I can honestly say that having an abortion was the wrong decision. But not being able to heal from it, to acknowledge the pain and loss, ruined my life. My abortions were 20 years ago.
Project Rachel enables you to take full responsibility for your decision, claim your baby and form a new relationship with him/her. It is done in a non-shaming and supportive environment with skilled facilitators. A very profound experience. Thank you

"Thus says the Lord: In 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, says the Lord, they shall return from the enemy's land. There is hope for your future, says the Lord." Jeremiah 31: 15-17
