Most books written for women post-abortion have a conservative Christian perspective.  This valuable addition to the field does not make assumptions about readers’ views and is written for those who suffer guilt for religious or other reasons. A very readable work; well recommended for all public libraries.

Women [and men) everywhere will be helped by the information in this book.  I know of no topic that cries out for healing more than the personal experience of choosing abortion.

Christiane Northrup, M.D., Author of  Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

Abortion reaches deep, deep into the heart and touches on mysteries we will never fully appreciate and understand. THE HEALING CHOICE offers sensitive, effective ways for men and women to deal with abortion in their lives, focusing on subtle themes of the heart. More than anything, whatever our judgements or opinions may be, we need compassion, and this book‘s chief virtue is its compassion. Like a compassionate and intelligent therapist, it guides a woman through the memories and emotions that can send waves of disturbance into a life for years. I honor the courage and sensitivity of its authors who demonstrate rare wisdom in an age of hysteria.
