Project Rachel was founded nationally in Milwaukee in 1984, and in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati in 1994, and is presently in 140 dioceses internationally. For women and men who have lost a child through abortion.
“I made a private choice, but it became a secret burden…Time for a second choice…Choose to Accept God’s Love and Forgive Yourself.
“I didn’t think anyone would understand how I felt. I was so relieved to be able to share my experience with someone who understood what I was going through. No one condemned me. They understood and helped me forgive myself.”
