I received the following in an e-mail from a reader who will stay anonymous.  It’s for a post-abortion recovery retreat for men, to be held on Saturday May 31.  Details below:

On Saturday, May 31, 2014, there will be a special retreat for men offered that is geared to helping men deal with a past abortion.  If you or a male friend have experienced this lost fatherhood, this one day retreat will be helpful.   This is the first time to my knowledge that a retreat like this is being offered for men in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  The information I have been given is that it is similar to Project Rachel, but for men.  I believe Priests for Life has also been successful hosting retreats like this for men.

Before you say “no”, here are a few things that you need to know:

1) All inquiries are CONFIDENTIAL.

2) There is NO “judging”

3) There are NO “put downs”

4) Attendees to my knowledge do NOT have to give out their last name.

My brothers, if you know of another man in this situation, please do not hesitate to let him know about this retreat.

Here is the link for more information and to register:  Project Joseph Home

Project Joseph is an outreach program for men suffering from abortion.  For confidential assistance, contact 972-679-4760 or healing@projectjosephdallas.org.  

Many of us have made bad mistakes in life.  Some of us have been blessed, by the Grace of God, not to have reason to consider or participate in an abortion, but others have not been so fortunate.  A counselor outside an abortion mill mentioned recently that even couples (esp. married couples) that do not go through with an abortion often times have a great deal of guilt for even seriously considering one.  There is an enormous spectrum of emotions in those who have played a role in procuring an abortion, from cold-hearted indifference to a lifetime of guilt and remorse.

While we may deplore the fact that abortion exists and that people procure them, we must have great compassion for those who are suffering from the results of their decision.  Abortion is simply a mass tragedy afflicting our culture and so many millions of people.  Very few people have a “positive” abortion experience – only pathological leftists and similar disturbed individuals.  It leaves most people involved badly scarred.  I hope this program helps men who have made this tragic, life-taking choice.

And thanks to the reader for bringing it to my attention.

So needed…. Glad you posted this. It will be post aborted dads and moms who will bring down this abomination – because they will expose the BIG LIE.
