Post-Abortive Woman Releases New Christian Healing Guide for Abortion Pain

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — There is no woman in the world who grows up thinking she will have an abortion one day. Whatever the reason for the abortion — feeling they have no other option or pressure from a partner or others — many women feel significant guilt and shame.
Harper learned the hard way when she chose abortion as a teenager, carrying around debilitating emotions that led to drugs, alcohol and even a suicide attempt.
For seven years, author Sheila Harper carried with her the shame and humiliation of her abortion.
Eventually she found deliverance through Gods abundant grace and learned that she could forgive herself and those involved with making that decision.
With her new book, "SaveOne: A Guide to Emotional Healing after Abortion," Harper helps women pinpoint those debilitating emotions and guide them towards forgiveness and renewal.
However women arrived at an abortion decision, "the feelings of shame, sadness and regret are often carried inside them for years," Harper says.
"Many women are unable to ever forgive themselves, thinking they will carry this very private and personal grief inside them forever," she said.
With SaveOne, Harper presents a step by step, chapter by chapter guide that shows you how to rely on your Creator for the courage to deal with the past.
She hopes to answer the kinds of questions post-abortive women ask, like: Is there life after an abortion, Why am I an emotional wreck, Can I really overcome my guilt and be set free, and Does God really care about me?
Harper says she will help women learn to reclaim their lives and the lives of their unborn children and become the wife, mother, and friend they were meant to be without the emotional baggage.
Harper has been working with pro-life issues since 1992, focusing on the abortion recovery realm. She founded SaveOne, an outreach ministry, in 1999, and has served as President since that time.
